I loved the concept of this book. I just returned from a 2 week vacation and wrote in this book every day. I used all the journaling pages to write on but if you don't journal so much the journaling pages are strong enough to handle pictures or memorabilia being stuck on also. I took a few scrapping supplies along on vacation to decorate some of my journaling pages, so now that I'm home I just need to add pictures and some of the "stuff" I collected and I've got my vacation scrapbook/journal completed. I love the pocket pages also to keep a small map or brochure. A great book to add to your scrapbooking collection. I'll use this product again.
I got two of these, one for me and one to give as a gift. This is perfect for scraping while traveling, there is plenty of room for everything you want to hold on to. I keep a black pen in the spiral binding so I can jot down a few thoughts whenever I have the time. The only draw back (and it a a VERY small one) is that most of the photo pages are in the back of the book. But is doesn't make it any less awesome. :)
I think this would have to be one of the best buys I've got from sb.com, its a great size with more than enough space for journaling with the extra bonus of places to put your photos. I'm going to have sooo much fun covering the front of this and using it to journal the move my partner and I are making interstate in a few months. THANKS FANCY PANTS, LOVE IT!
