I think that I may possibly be the only digital scrapper who has NEVER bought one single thing, with the exception of my program, photoshop elements. I've never purchased a kit, an element, a template, an action, or a brush. Everything I use is either a freebie that I got from someone else or it's something that I made myself. I've been in forums before where I've mentioned this and the response has been "Oh don't feel bad, I held out for the longest time too." I don't think they understand. I don't intend to ever buy a single thing. I have no desire to spend money on something that can be done for free. If I wanted to spend a fortune, or even a little bit that would turn into a fortune, I would try regular old fashioned scrapbooking.
I'm curious here. Am I the only one like this? I really want to know, leave me a comment and tell me if you are a die hard freebie collector or do you splurge and hit the shops.
Now for some sharing. I finished June's month in review layout. I also got started on the one for July.
This is one I did from some of the pictures I got over the weekend. The big kid in the background is Wade. I took the picture while we were riding the tilt a whirl. Love the grin on his face.
The picture in this layout is of a little rock I have out in my front yard. I couldn't find anything I liked to do this layout so I dug deep into my old stash of freebie kits and found this one. I can't remember where I got it from or even how long ago it was. I do know the designer though. The kit is by Jeannie Papai designs.
And finally the template I made before I did the layout. I don't know how useful anyone is finding these templates but if you would like it, you can find it HERE
