Consider picking up one of Making Memories 8x8 Pre-Designed Albums. These albums come all decorated for you and ladies, these are flat pages. The pages have embellishments that include flowers, buttons and brads.
The thing I really like about these albums is that they tell you what size of pictures you'll need! On each page in the picture slots are the size of photos.
There are nice journalling spots.
These are the perfect albums if you just haven't had the time to do your own scrapbooking lately.
