I just bought this and LOVE it!! I actually have a pretty easy time journaling, but I've been struggling with page ideas for an all-about-me album. This book gave me TONS of ideas. And not just for aam albums. The lists of questions can be used in all different ways. The LO's in there are great, but to be honest I so enjoyed reading through the questions and jotting down page ideas (I'm still not finished), I barely had a chance to check out the scrap talent - yet. :)


BTW - I bought mine in a moment of desparation at Borders, but you can pick this up at www.ideabooks4u.com - shipping is LIGHTNING fast!!!!

I got mine this weekend at Barnes & Noble. I LOVE it, too!! The little quizzes are great! I like how they did them in Q&A format, list format and paragraph format! So many different page ideas. Must have!!

It figures. I was doing SOOO well on my idea book boycott. Well, not really a boycott, I just can't think of the word. I have such a HUGE stack that I need to go through already that I am trying to not buy any new ones.
Now here is this book, and I have heard good things about Ali's 2nd book. I guess I'll be on the lookout for both. I wish I could order them sight unseen, but I just can't do it. Even with a thousand recommendations, for some reason I still have to thumb through it myself.

Carrie - I'm totally with you on the idea book boycott. I'm really not being an enabler when I say that this book should definitely be an exception. It's much more about scrapbook "content" than composition, doo-dads, techniques, etc.


BTW - Despite my boycott, I also bought Ali's latest book only b/c it is about pattern paper, which is a huge scrap stumbling block for me. So far I don't regret that either - it's terrific.

So... while most of my idea books are more "eye-candy" for me, these two books will actually help me in my day-to-day scrapping so I consider them practical purchases.

Got mine yesterday and already have pinned down my elusive husband for an awesome interview and my son, River who was more than happy to oblige! I ordered it with Freestyle and a Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper. I'm so glad I "threw" it in my shopping cart along with my oher two purchases. I got it from IdeaBook4U on Saturday and am *still* waiting for my order from Amazon.com, that was placed at the same time on the same day!

Oh...I LOVE LOVE LOVE this special issue!

I have the toughest time scrapping "posed shots"...which I LOVE to take..Lol..these quizzes/questions are seriously the perfect way to incorporate journaling into thepages with the "posed" photos! I'll be using this one for YEARS! Hopefully they'll come out with a part 2....:)

And did you notice who's layout is on the backcover? :)
