Fun for all ages, this Hidden Object game is a delight to those of us who scrapbook as a hobby. The items are well-drawn, not to easy, or too hard, to find, and delightful to look at. This game offers more than one of the sought object so you have a real chance to find them, and has a magnifier option for those of us with older eyes. I find it fun to play, and also an inspiration for my paper scrapbooking.

Fun little game!
This is such a fun little game for all the family. The graphics are brilliant and while some things prove difficult to find, the level of challenge means it's relaxed enough to not stress over.
I particularly liked how you can zoom in and zoom out which made each level much more interesting for me. I also really, really enjoyed each scene and unlike most other HO games, this one actually made sense in what you where finding.

Okay hidden object game for scrapbookers
When I saw this as the featured game of the day, I went ahead and tried the demo. I'm a big fan of hidden object games, and I've considered getting into scrapbooking, so I figured this game would be a good fit. While I can't say that I disliked the game, it also wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be.
The hidden object part started out okay, but after playing several levels it seemed you were looking for your hidden objects in the same few places every round. For me, it got a little boring after awhile- especially since many times you were looking for the same hidden objects in each round. I felt there was a good mix of easier and harder objects to find. Although I was skeptical about it, the magnifying glass feature is actually very well done and very useful for finding smaller items.
The scrapbook design part was also just okay for me. I wish it allowed you to start your pages from scratch and give you more choices as to the layout of the page and the background. I also found that the controls were off at times- I would click to move one thing and it would move something else.
Although it's impossible to lose this game, you can choose whether you want to time yourself or play in "relaxed mode." There is no real storyline- you're helping to find hidden objects so that you can help complete scrapbooks. If you're just a lover of any hidden object games- even repetitive ones- and have a creative side, you may really like this game. If you're not into the scrapbooking part and like a little more variety, try a different game or at least try the demo first.

A great game for scrapbookers
This game was a lot of fun. I was a little skeptical at first but once I was playing the demo it became a lot of fun.
The graphics are fantastic. The decorating of scrapbook pages are a blast. It's a relaxing and fun game. If your the creative type, you will enjoy this game.

Problably just for the young or scapbookers
This 15 level game only has 3 elements Hidden objects, matching objects to their outline, and Scrapbooking. There is no puzzles ,no mystery, no storyline.
The hidden objects are stickers. buttons, and other scrapbook supplies. I collect stickers and like the idea of scrapbooking. Si I enjoyed it somewhat. If you like unsual object finds you may enjoy it. So will scrapbookers, small children and people who collect this kind of stuff. There are only about 8 different puzzle and u have to do them a total of 45 times. so it gets boring and repetitive fast.
The scrapbooking part is fun and lets you be creative. First they make a starter page with backgrounds, main photos, theme, and a few objects. There are 4 or 5 outines you must find the objects the match.After that you can scrapbook how you want. You can change backgrounds and take most objects off and do it you way. You can not change the photo or theme.There are 15 pages to do.

Not for me
This game didn't work for me at all. I hated the music and didn't like the graphics. The hidden object scenes were tedious and redundant. There's no storyline at all and that's my favorite part.

Not the best, but good for beginners...
I was immediately drawn to this game because I love scrapbooking and you do get to scrapbook at the end of each section. However, the real challenge is finding stickers and other small items in drawers, on shelves, etc.
My biggest peeve with this game is how small many of the objects were. Thankfully, there is a handy magnifying glass, but you shouldn't need one in a decent HO game. If you can't find something, chances are it is hidden too well in a container of similarly colored objects. Yes, items are supposed to be hidden, but definitely not impossible to find without a hint or magnifying glass. I had to play this game in small increments because I would get frustrated with the microscopic items needed to move on.
On the plus side, the scrapbooking mini-games at the end of each level are fun and it's easy to get full stars for each page if you just let your creativity flow.
The game is fairly long with a repetitive scenes. It's a good game for beginners.

Not bad but could be better...
I had fun playing this game and it was worth the discounted price, but there are a few things that would make it much better.
1. More levels and less repetitiveness in each level.
2. Like someone else has already stated; the ability to start from scratch and more goodies to choose from.
3. The ability to use my own photos in a given theme to make it more personal, then perhaps use it as a desktop if I wish?
This game does have the potential to be something really great, I do hope that there are further editions with at least some if not all of the above suggestions added.

Very Fun for Beginners
My 9-year-old daughter is starting to play my easier HOG, so I bought this one for her to play all by herself. While I have mostly watched the game from over her shoulder, it is very much set up the same way the I Spy games are, which she loves. Personally, I would peg this game for tweens to young adults. A bit too easy for veteran gamers. Very cute overall.

Bad, bad design!
This is a hidden object game with a search list of items. My absolutely awful rating is based on the fact that there are SEVERAL items hidden for each one that is listed ... and you will get a "penalty buzzer" sound if you click on any of these extras after you have found the first one.
For example, you may be asked to find an apple. You click on the object, and the object dissolves off the screen, and the item in the list is grayed out. (Fine so far.) But as you continue on the same screen, you find two other apples?! This occurred on EVERY screen I played. It was very frustrating.
Nice graphics. Some good and some annoying music. Many spelling and grammar errors.
There is a nice feature to right-click for a pop-out magnifying glass.
Hints are given as a large sparkly area which covers over a dozen small objects.
Big Fish sells so many good HOG's - just skip this one!
