I love scrapbooking and i love putting my creations on here...i spend alot of time on each and every project, card and layout that i make and am very proud of each of them.
It has been bought to my attention over the last few weeks of some of my work is being copied...that i love..that makes me happy that an idea i had gives someone else inspiration...this i love...
I do this myself...i see something that i love and use that idea, either all of it or just part of it...but i do one thing...i give credit...i link people up..i say i saw this idea and from it i did this...or i lifted this page and this is the person i got it from.
I have had people email me and say...thankyou..i copied your idea...here is the link come and see...and i do..and i love it...the things you people have been creating have been gorgeous and i have loved seeing them...that makes me happy...really happy and i hope people will continue to do it.
But...the fact that there are people out there saying these projects are their own...copying pages, projects...and passing them off as their own...not even a 'i got the idea for this page from here'
that makes me sad...that makes me upset...very upset. I am a very slow scrapbooker...each project takes me hours to do, ages to put the idea from a spark in my head to actually showing it here...i know other people have had this problem and it upsets them as well.
Please if you copy my work, all you have to do is credit...that is one of the biggest rules in scrapbooking...give credit, otherwise people will not want to share their projects...
I am standing off my soap box now and will be back with a project 2m...xxxx
