I have just started this wonderful hobby of scrapbooking, and this book has opened my eyes to all the possibilities out there. The typical things that one would think to scrap (weddings, birthdays, holidays and so forth) can limit our options. This book shows how real life is made up of everyday moments more than yearly events, and encourages you to record them: how your children are growing, things people say, things that you like (and dislike!), quirks and habits that you have... The artwork is wonderful. I've gotten a lot of ideas from Nic's layouts. I absolutely recommend this book if you need a boost of inspiration, if you've ran out of ideas, or just if you (like me) love to flip through books and delight your eyes with beautiful layouts.
