My computer desk where I sit and create while being surrounded by pictures of my kids, some gnomes, a jar of paper stars Meg gave me, an angel Jim gave me, a timer to get me up out of my chair every hour and of course my Starbucks nonfat chai =)
Of course I had to make this a digital layout with various goodies from all of Krystalís kits. Thanks once again Krystal for your patience and inspiration~!{{}}

When I first started scrapbooking I had never heard the term ~hybrid~ applied to layouts. The only hybrid I had ever heard of was a car. Upon further investigation I found out that hybrid layouts consisted of traditional scrapbooking with a few digital elements thrown in. I wasnít all that interested in doing purely digital cause I sit at a computer most of the day at work entering culture results and scrapbooking for me was a way to throw myself into all the supplies and yes throw all those supplies around a bit too =) Around the same time I came across the term ~hybrid~ Krystal Hartley put out a call for her Creative Ensemble, especially hybrid scrapbookers and I thought to myself that this might be a new and creative way to improve my layouts. When she selected me, I remember warning her that I had NO clue what digital scrapbooking was but that I was more than willing to try and create hybrid layouts for her. The very first hybrid layout I created I really did not like. It just seemed weird to me to be mixing the two styles. Yes I am a purist at heart. But apparently I did not have that perceptive of an eye because this layout got a lot of attention and was highlighted and published on several internet websites. Well, I thought, I have to reevaluate MY creative outlook. And I continued on making my hybrid layouts. One day I sat down and REALLY looked all the amazing digital layouts Krystal and others were creating. WOW they were so creative! And the scientist in me came out and my curiosity was peeked. I wanted to know just HOW they achieved all those special techniques to make them look like traditional paper layouts. So I played around with Adobe Photoshop and sent numerous emails to Krystal asking what I now I realize are pretty stupid questions and fumbled my way thru making my very first digital layout. It was simple and basic but this layout also got a lot of attention and was highlighted on several internet websites.
My creative process continues to develop. I am still learning new techniques in both traditional and digital scrapbooking. I will never give up my traditional scrapbooking because I really DO love tossing all those supplies around. But I know my creative outlook and design process has changed and improved because I grasped that opportunity to branch out into digital scrapbooking when it was opened to me.

Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
