yes, i have the mm clear book. i have the scrolls themed ones. totally fabulous you hear me!

I also want the cheeky and travel book. i was thinking 9.99 was a little steep for them, so i used my coupon. in the pack, you get some 4x6 photo overlays (scrolls has scroll borders), various sizes of definitions and quotes, and some tags that look like they will fit into those metal rims making memories also puts out.

scrolls is a good pack to start with because is the most generic line. i love cheeky too. there is also a baby set. i found these at AC moore. i haven't seen them at michaels yet.
