Scrap happy!

Everyone knows that scrapbooking is of the devil right? First you get lured in because you like your photos to look all pretty. Then you start discovering stores all over town that have cool scrapbooking supplies that you just have to check out and which you inevitably spend hundreds of dollars in. Sucked in i tell you! And don't get me started on the sales! Actually i usually only buy stuff if they are on sale because otherwise they are usually as dear as poison. I've spent a few years scrapbooking now and then. I love making cards and invitations mostly although i have started Ethans scrapbook. Yeah, i've done like 3 or 4 pages. *cough* loser *cough*. The kid is 4 next month and i've only done that much. sheesh, i'm lame.

Anyhow then a friend....who we'll call Kristie...because thats her name, introduced me to digital scrapbooking. Holy addiction Batman! It's so easy - download some templates, download some free kits and whala! scrapbook page!!
Well it does take a bit more effort on my part but it's super fun and addictive. So in the last couple of weeks i've done what it took me a couple of years to do by hand, you know with real paper and stuff. lol I'm in love although i'm guessing that eventually i'm going to run out of free downloads and i'm going to have to pay up.

I think i have to credit the people who i got the downloads from before i go and post them on here, so i'll figure that out and then post them.

I can't wait to see them. I've been thinking of doing digital scrapbooking but not sure I'd be any good.

I have been hooked on digital scrapbooking for 6 years. I have now made the cross over into digital desiger. You can find freebies on my blog about once a month or more if you are intersted. To answer your question, if you post a layout on your blog, it is nice just to say the name of the kit and the designer under the layout. If you know the blog where you got it, you can post a link to it, but you don't have to. I have posted some layout that I didn't know the designer and just said I didn't know who made the kit. No one will come after you for not putting credits on there.
