Where should I go on the web for tips and which store should I go for supplies? I've never done this before...
And girls, what kind of scrapbook would you appreciate if you were receiving one?

That is a wonderful idea. Your gf will be thrilled. As to what kind she will appreciate-- I agree with the other posters that pictures or other mementos from great moments is the way to go. In addition to photos, you can also include other items such as ticket stubs, programs, post cards, letters, greeting cards, invitations, etc. Most importantly, be sure to include some journaling in each layout. Journaling is your hand-written or computer generated thoughts and feelings about the event or memory that you are scrapbooking about.
Scrapbooking kits are perhaps the easiest way to get started, since they do include almost everything you need, such as papers, stickers, embellishments, etc. You may need to purchase a little card stock, which usually doesn't come with kits, and you will need cutting tools and acid free glues and adhesives. You can get this at any scrapbook store. Places like Michaels and Joann also sell these supplies, if you have one near by. If you go to Michaels, visit their web site and print off a 40% coupon. This gives you a 40% discount on one item, provided it is not already on sale.
As for actually assembling the layout, I direct you to the link below. It contains a video demonstration for first time scrapbookers, showing you how to make a simple layout.

Us girls will always have feeling for our exes (sometimes) because we get really emotionally involved. Tell her how you feel and tell her you are willing to give her space and sort out her feelings. She needs to be over him in order to be with you. It's unfair if her mind is on her ex when she is with you. Send her flowers often, write poems and cards to cheer her up.You don't say how long ago they broke up, but i know you're feeling like you're a rebound for her at the moment... Cheer up and she'll soon realise how wonderful you are for her. Keep spoiling her and telling how you feel about her... that's what she needs right now... LOVE which her ex took away from her...
Oh, that's a sweet idea. Go to your local craft store and look for scrapbook kits. They are small books, maybe 8" x 8" and have all the paper and supplies inside the pack. You can add your photos and be done in no time. The only other thing you might need are glue dots or some sort of glue and a pair of scissors. The kit will have pictures for how to style a page. Don't forget to add in little treasures, like ticket stubs or love notes you saved.

If you want paper, embellishments (the extra frillies) that all match, http://www.paperwishes.com and search for "finished in a flash" it's a pack with everything included. There are a bunch of different themes, so you could pick out something she would like.
As for what to scrapbook.. it could be about stuff you have done together, pictures, movie stubs, receipts from dinners, the stories behind the stuff... funny jokes between the two of you.. it can be anything you want! have fun with it, and I know she will love whatever you do..

I love the paper albums by Creative Memories - the kits come with all of the papers, etc. Just a scrapbook of your friendship would be worth its weight in gold - what a great gift.
