As promised, here's a scan of Anna's birthday present! I am really pleased with how it turned out :D I am going to scrap one for myself, a nice start for my "Family" album that I have been intending on scrapping. Thanks to Elsie Flannigan for the inspiration :D

There's a bit of controversy surrounding it right to copy someone else's work? I think it's totally okay, as long as the really similar pages are not intended for submission to a mag, and if any pages that are published which have a clearly scraplifted element on them are credited to the original artist. It's a hoodoo area, though. Ultimately, all scrapping ideas are based on a reinterpretation of another's, so where is the line drawn???? Who knows, but if Creating Keepsakes says it's great to scraplift, then it MUST be okay! And I won't ever let anyone make me feel bad if I use a lifted idea on a layout again!!! BTW, I am looooving CK this year! But then I've loved it since I started scrapping last year :P It's definitely my fave scrapping mag!!! :D :D :D

So off you go, everyone - feel free to scraplift! Just remember to credit your ideas :) And check out CK's "Scraplift!" article (Emily Magelby, p.103, November 2005 edition)'s full of tips! Oh, and CK don't pay me to say that they're great lol :D I just love the mag :D :P :D
