Just why do I Digi Scrap?

I know a lot of people prefer to do their scrapbooking in the traditional manner, but I have never been one of them. It's not that I hold traditional scrappers in disdain or anything of the sort. Rather, it was a purely economical and practical reason at the time - I was a stay-at-home mom of two little girls, and (economically) couldn't purchase a lot of scrapping supplies and (practically) my daughters would have wanted to scrapbook right along with Mommy... and at the ages of 3 and 5, I just wasn't prepared to have them "help" me out! (This goes right back to the economical point, too!)

Once I got started with Digi Scrapping, I was hooked (line, and sinker!) I have always loved working with photo retouching programs (starting with Jasc's Paint Shop Pro, now I'm using Adobe's Photoshop Elements for the main part) - and the art technique of trompe l'oeil has always intrigued me - so whenever I can make something digital look real... I'm in hog heaven! (On one piece of larger artwork I recently created, I actually had someone try to physically lift one of the pieces/prints off the final printed poster... now that's cool!)

When I started this blog, I decided I wanted to have a regular closing "tagline" at the end of all of my posts... with the previous information in mind, I will close out here with what I hope will become my standard tagline... part of it contains my alltime-favorite quote from Walt Disney, a man I have such great admiration for...

So, until next time, remember... "it's kind of fun to do the impossible!"
