Becky and Traveler, it worked! I put both of the spell scrolls back on the window ledge, went back outside to get the snapdragon to jump and I then retrieved the papers and put them together in the backwards room! It wouldn't work before because I'd skipped the steps. I had the scrolls but didn't do the snapdragon thing to get one of them I'd just gone into the backwards room and picked it up.
It's a fun game, but not very intuitive. I have to use the walkthrough too much.
