What a great idea! And YES, your scrapbook can be amazing - even if it IS your first one! My first scrapbook album was for my parent's 50th anniversary. It sometimes takes an important occasion to get us moving.

One suggestion I have is to find a pack of coordinating papers that you like. It is so much easier to mix & match papers & have everything go together if you start with a coordinating pack. I can't tell you how much easier my first scrapbook would have been if I had known to do that at the time!

One paper pack that comes to mind is the 8X8 Wedding papers that Paper Wishes sells. It not only has papers, but coordinating printed embellishments that you can cut out and add to your pages. It's inexpensive and the papers are really pretty. While it has some embellishments you wouldn't be able to use because they are specific to a wedding, there are others that are more "love" themed and could be perfect for your purpose (as well as plenty of blank ones on which you can write your own sentiment). But this is just one of many options for coordinating paper packs. To see what PW carries, you could check here.
