Well, it has happened. I never thought that I would see the day that taking up for someone would cause so much trouble. A lot of my friends and other scrappers have been blatantly lifted lately. And not just lately, for quite a while. Most have said nothing, since there is a fine line on lifting and being inspired by someone. Most scrappers are sincere and will put "inspired by" and give proper credit when a page is really lifted, not just ideas but almost the exact paper, elements, title, etc and so on. One person has even been removed from a site for doing it. But she moved over to another one is doing the same thing. I put a comment, yes I guess it was a little rude, but all I said was "this reminds me of a page I saw...." well, I got a nasty pm and then all of a sudden I have ugly comments on my blog, on my mini-books that they are copies of someone elses. They are not, and everyone who knows me will vouch for that fact. I guess they think I will shut up. I looked up their blog only to find that it has been removed!!! The name of the blog was "Linda-isms All the Rage". Wonder why!!! LOL!
I just think this is riduculous, to get so nasty and negative over a hobby that is filled will joy, passion and fulfillment. Some people work on DT's and mfgs. and have numerous publications and teach and honestly make a living doing this, most don't, but lifting can be serious. Goodness, this lady won't quit!!! Anyway, just had to vent, and if you see any more nasty comments on my blog, you will know why. Probably will see some on my galleries as well!
I urge the rest of you who have been lifted by this person, check your comments, she may be leaving some for you as well!!! Hopefully not. Sorry to have to make this post, but I felt it necessary!
