scrappinnewbie -- glad you could join me in a good laugh! I'm sure we're not the only ones!!

I never lie about what I spend, i just don't tell info unless I'm asked. For exacmple......if I buy an outfit when I know I shouldn't spend the money, the way to handle this situation is this....you rush home, put it in the closet and pull it out when you're ready to wear it. When dh asks, you simply say, Oh, it was in the closet. Luckily, he won't think to ask how long it's been in the closet. Same with scrapbook supplies. You rush home and put them away so it "appears" as though it's been there for awhile. If he asks, I will tell him exactly what I spend. He really can't say too much since he just bought another Harley and is in the process of fixing it up! I really should clarify that he has never said a word about how much I spend or what I buy. I would just like to keep it that way!!!

When my DH and I were newly married (before children), I had an obsession with black suits! I would buy them and put them in clear dry cleaning bags and carry them into our apartment. One day my DH said, "It's really interesting that dry cleaners can now reattach the original purchase tags to your suits." - BUSTED!!

With that being said, I only do digital now but I was a paper scrapper for a long time. I have over 30 CM albums that are completely full. I also have an overabundance of supplies and tools that come in handy for Girl Scouts and my children's school projects.

Just recently, I realized how much I missed paper scrapping when I helped my oldest DD do a tri-fold board for Colonial Day. It turned out looking like a humungous scrapbook page! I had so much fun mounted the photos on paper before mounting them on the board and adding all of the embellishments and borders.

I wish that I had the room to do the traditional again. With 4 children under 9 - it is really tough to find the space. I have just been spoiled by the convenience of sitting on couch with my laptop.

Hi! Brand Newbie here with my first post...drawn to this thread because I too am a "traditional paper" scrapbooker, and was wondering if there's a way to share those layouts here. I'm just starting to learn to do some digi, very new and only 2-3 layouts which are non-disney. I have done quite a few books of Disney though that I would love to share, the problem is they are mostly 12x12 and won't fit on my scanner and I'm not usually satisfied with photos of my layouts. Any suggestions? Any tips for a rookie?
I will NOT be giving up my paper scrapping and cardmaking as I too love the hands on process too much, but would like to try my hand at something new as well, so I'm trying to teach myself photo elements.
Thanks for letting me ramble, and for letting me join this amazing group!!

Our paper scrappers here usually just take a digital picture and upload it to the gallery. Unless you do 6x6 or 8x8 it would be hard to scan. Welcome to the forum!

Glad to know there is a mix of us here.
I'm new to the forum and to digi scrapping...actually only decided to dabble in it after finding this site and a particular template
this one...http://mousescrappers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5570
I'm looking forward to a mix of both paper/traditional and digi scrapbooking!

You're not the only one. I don't do any digital lo's. Nothing against digi, it is just not for me. The closest I come to digital is editing my photos. My husband is computer guy, and he has suggested digital to me many times, but I just can't give up my good old fashion scrapbooking. It took me forever to give up my film camera. LOL! I am a crafter, so I just enjoy physically making stuff. Paper and glue make me happy.

I love looking at everyone's digital lo's. I have found so many great ideas here. I think the end result is the same for all of us....preserving memories and having fun doing it.

I don't like the way they look when I scan them, so take pictures of mine and them up load them to my computer. I like them best when I take my LO's outside in the natural light to photograph them. (not in the direct light though). Then I will try to crop all of the back ground junk out before saving them.

Thanks for the tips! Especially about the natural light...that might help my photos. I used to do layouts for CM's page design committee and had to send in the originals, so I would photograph them to document what I had done, but I was never happy with the quality of the photos. I am better with Elements now, though, so perhaps I can improve on the quality.

I do have 4 books worth of layouts from out last "big trip" in 2008, are people interested in seeing older layouts, or only new stuff? We don't have a trip planned anytime soon, so I'm afraid unless I rescrap old stuff (seems kinda silly when I am ages behind) I have nothing to share. I am excited to see what everyone else is doing though, and glad to hear that a mix of digi and traditional folks are here!

I think I speak for most everyone when I say that we love anything Disney---new or old it doesn't matter at all! So if you are willing to share your older trip pages feel free. In fact, older pictures can sometimes be even more fun as it shows how things change and evolve within the parks (just my opinion) And as a previous poster mentioned seeing other's layouts is a great source of inspiration regardless of whether it is traditional or digital.

The way I see it is we won't know if the pics are old unless it's got something in the background that is now gone. I love looking at pictures and layouts no matter how old they are.
