An answer and a surprise

There was a comment left on my last post that I want to address today. The comment was "I have a really stupid question and I hope you don't mind me asking, but what do you exactly do in scrapbooking? It does look interesting."
First of all, not a stupid question at all, and second, of course I don't mind you asking. Now to answer it I didn't know if I could explain it so that it would make sense so I went in search of an intelligent answer. You see sometimes, even though my brain knows the answer, when I put it into words it loses something on the journey from thought to text.
So, this is the definition that I found for scrapbooking:
Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of photographs, printed media, and memorabilia contained in decorated albums, or scrapbooks.

I also found an explanation of what digital scrapbooking is on Wise Geek

Now that you endured my feeble attempt at explaining scrapbooking I have a surprise for you. When I was doing my EC drops yesterday I saw an adorable make up bag on LovelyPurses The fabric it was made from had the cutest little trees on it and it inspired me to go make some of my own. I've included one layered template and 5 sample trees.
You can get them right HERE

Well back to work tomorrow, at least it's only a 4 day work week. Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor day weekend.

I want to thank you for taking the time and answering my question. I was curious, because it seems to be such a popular hobby. Since I have so much stuff lying around the house as it is, I would probably opt for the digital scrapbook. Thank you, again :)

I also want to learn how to do digital scrap booking. Is there a site you can recommend where to get free images from or even templates? I have been playing with gimp and I'm having so much fun! Thanks!

I'm doing digiscrapbooking or photo layouting sometimes for personal use, but until now I do not know how to make my own elements or embellishments or even paper I always rely on freebies, photoshop brushes and gradients.
I admire artist like you because you're so good in doing this stuff. I hope I can be as good as you (if only I have time to practice).

Keep it up!

Have a nice day!

Ann, scrapbooking is one of my passions! I have never tried digital scrapbooking though, I guess I'll dip my toes in eventually.

Funny you should have this posted today! I was doing my post for a new Music Monday and added a free download. Walter said what is scrap booking anyway?

I had to explain to him also. This is a lovely set you have designed.

Thank you Ann for your lovely and kind words as Walter and I are going through these trying times.

He got home yesterday and everything is still up in the air at the moment. But, we are staying busy and doing our best to keep our minds occupied!!

Hugs,
Jackie:-)
