Scrapbook Generation Sketches For Scrapbooking
May 17, Lara rated it really liked it. This is the second of Becky Higgins' sketch books. Becky's amazing style still shines through, but there are more sketches in this one that feature multiple small photos.

If you're still using photo prints, refer to the first of Becky's sketch books for more usable sketches. Dec 03, Nicole rated it it was amazing Shelves: creativity.
BH does it again! A wonderful sequel. More sketches and LO's to inspire and enjoy. Organized similarly to the first one for multiple ways of using it. My only beef? Becky seems to use a LOT of enlargements these days and my budget isn't ready for that yet. Still fabulous though.
