It's an incredibly inventive compendium of scrapbook techniquesgave me loads of ideas to try out in my own work.

Very original!/5. As with her other book, “The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt”, this one is beautifully crafted with attractive text, photos, and illustrations. It’s just like reading a scrapbook. The story is compelling and so realistic that towards the end, I had to check to see if it may have even been partially based on a true story (it wasn’t)/5.
