Digital or Traditional Scrapping... That is the question

What is your favorite to do Traditional or Digital?  I like a little of both worlds.  I started scrap booking with Digital, my grandson's first year is digital.  It was easy for me to do and  there was no mess and I could make copies for everyone that wanted one.!!  Then for my cousin Sharon, you know the best friend that I scraped about in one of my earlier blog post.  Well, SHE is the one I blame for waking up the Traditional Scrap booking monster in me lol.  I went from a little computer on a table to half of the den for my scrap area (secrestly working on the whole room).  Thank you Lord for understanding men willing to share their area with us women. lol  I have it every where ask Russell he will tell you... that wasn't the deal.... lol. But you just cannot help it. You just cannot container that wild supply, paper hungry, gadget wanting monster. I know you are laughing now but you know exactly what I'm talking about don't you?  Its OK, you can tell me, he doesn't have my blog address. Let it out, confess your addiction to the paper and inks and the latest cutting machines. I know, I can relate... I'm there girl.   Sigh.... sorry got onto a rabbit trail. What I was getting at is I love to do both and have recently did a few Digital LO's for some friends and I wanted to share them with you.  My next venture is creating my own elements. So, if any of you create your own digi elements please feel free to give me a few pointerspointers lol..... here are my latest digi's  thank for stoping by and checking out my "stuff". Oh and dont forget to go comment on Creative Kuts blog so you will be elible to win some blog candy and leave a comnent on my "Announcement" Blog post below.

Now for the the fun....  I, like you, have TONS of scraps. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but my Scraps are not organized at all. I have a box full and three drawers.

 I could probably make cards until the cows come home and still have some left. 
 I made a very simple card.  All the papers were from my scrap drawers. but what I want to draw your attention to is the small dainty roses I made from.... thats right.... Scraps. 

I can make a whole garden of roses with all my scraps. 
It is made from a small flower punch that is as small as a dime.   

So now you are going to think twice about throwing away the smallest of scraps lol.  
Each Rose is 4 punches. I think it took longer to make the three tiny roses than it did the card itself lol.  but i love them.  I think it just makes the card.

Thanks For stopping by and dont forget to leave a comment and become a follower to be eligible for the grand prize Blog Candy!!!

Your next Stop is  Michelle
