I am absolute novice in scrapbooking although I always wanted to try. I started 3 months ago and for so long I was only using pre-made stickers, flowers and borders.

The handwriting on a stock of old looking papers is one of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow quotes: "How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams!
