Im Askeerd!!! & Blog Candy

Very askeerd that I'm going to very easily become very addicted to digital scrapbooking!!!  I decided to dip my toes in the water and ooooohhhhh, my goodness....
I have always been a hard core old fashioned scrapbooker, swearing I would NEVER go digital - it just doesn't look authentic!!!
I started to read snippets about how others like me tried it and now will never go back.  OH NO!  So I did it.  I headed over to Jessica Sprague's web site and took her free how to get started class.
Here is my VERY first digi page:
Very first page resized I was completely thrilled with how it turned out!  Then I started looking at hybrid scrapbooking.
For the bit of research I've done, the thoughts I had were different than what seems to be the trend.  What I absolutely love about the digi page is that I didn't have to worry about going to print out the photo to put on there.  I just played with it on my 'puter.  The thing I'm thinking I might like is to add my own ribbon, chipboard, etc after I print the initial paper with the pic on it.  On the other hand, the digital scrapbooking completely eliminates the bumbs that are formed in the pages surrounding by the 3 D embellies ....
So, I'm not sure what I'll do yet.  I do have VERY expensive baby albums and a wedding album that I've purchased that I'll definitely want to use so we'll see. 
Now to go research 12 x 12 printers - yikes!!!
If you like to scrapbook, I'd love to know what your preference is and why.  If you can answer those two questions as well as give me a link to any really good tutorials or your favorite digi store I'll enter your name for some yummy 6x6 printed paper for blog candy on the 25th!! Pin It
