Alright, this post comes with a WARNING label for anyone out there who might be offended, those at risk: Digi scrapbookers, you know who you are....unfortunately, one of you is one of my nearest and dearest. BUT, it has to be said, it just has to be said. I have been living in scrapbooking denial for quite some time now and I have decided to come out and take the subject at hand and fight the good fight for all of my fellow scrapbookers. I will be a warrior and am prepared to get out there and blog about it, and rant on the message boards about it (I am prepared to be kicked off and have some things said to me). As I have mentioned in a previous post, where I am working when it gets slow we can get on the internet. I am not an online "cruiser" so to speak, but today it was dead and I thought that I would check out some online scrapbooking galleries and get some inspiration and look at the craft that I so dearly miss and haven't been able to get my grubby little hands on since my whirlwind trip to Virginia. And I started perusing the pages and what did my wondering eyes did appear??I saw tons and tons of scrapbook pages and almost all of them on most of these websites that are just downloaded pages by scrapbookers like you and me are all digi pages. To be honest, I have nothing against it, knock yourself out. I, personally, think it misses the whole point, but that is just my personal opinion. BUT what is getting me is that talking with scrapbook store owners, they are going under and fast. They think its the Michael's, the Hobby Lobby's, the internet sales, they are dillusional!! It is the digi scrapper's. They will be the one's that take the paper selections, the stickers, the rub-on's, the chip-board's, everything that is glittery, stickely, and sacred to us scrapbookers that hold the art of cutting and pasting and getting together to "crop til we drop" out of OUR hands because there won't be enough of us "tried and true" to support our habit. Scrapbooking will become a digi craft, not a hands on craft. What is our future ladies? Paper packs and crappy selections, Enjoy!! And send a thank you note to your favoritge digi scrapper, no offense Tracey (you know I love you!!)
