I love, love, love Ali Edwards, and am practically obsessed with her work. So I could barely wait to get this book, and was disappointed when I did. I think a big part of the problem is that I'm used to her current style in Creating Keepsakes, and as we all know scrapbooking has evolved a lot even in the last few years. It's a lot more personal and a lot less "Here's a picture with some heart cutouts around it." Of course we're talking about Ali here so there aren't pictures with heart cut-outs, but just like the rest of us, she's certainly gotten better with time. Looking at this book (dated 2004 and 2006) was definitely looking back on her work and not what I'm used to seeing. There were some things I liked, some helpful design suggestions, and some layouts I enjoyed. But I really wouldn't spend $17 on the book. I've looked at it once and I don't think I'll return to it much, if at all. I'd suggest spending the money to subscribe to Creating Keepsakes (which I love and she's the creative editor of) and getting all her fresh, new ideas plus tons of other pages and ideas, too.
