I bought 3 of these at once (Red-doodle, blue and green). I was amazed at the high quality of the paper! It's as if you went through the recycling bin to find paper for your album: totally unique pages, some of which have things that can be used as "starters" for the page, however, if you don't want to use them, simply cover them up! Also, if you didn't know, the inside of each book is unique and goes with the theme of the book.
I bought two of them as gifts for my 11 and 14 year old nieces. Hopefully they will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed mine already.
My only complaint is that scrapbook.com (local stores too) can't keep the add-ons in stock! So I added brads and paper-clips from other lines to the gifts instead of the pockets and washi tape that I wanted from Smash.
Love love love this book! A perfect size to carry and can collect everything with the attached glue stick and pen.
This is a repurchase. My mom took the 1st one I bought, so obviously we think this one is a "keeper" :)
