I loved the concept of this book. I just returned from a 2 week vacation and wrote in this book every day. I used all the journaling pages to write on but if you don't journal so much the journaling pages are strong enough to handle pictures or memorabilia being stuck on also. I took a few scrapping supplies along on vacation to decorate some of my journaling pages, so now that I'm home I just need to add pictures and some of the "stuff" I collected and I've got my vacation scrapbook/journal completed. I love the pocket pages also to keep a small map or brochure. A great book to add to your scrapbooking collection. I'll use this product again.
