I'm doing a halloween layout and I saw a cute one in the gallery, and I'm using bits and pieces of their ideas, how can I properly give credit to the original scrapbooker that I'm scraplifting from?

It's nice that you want to give credit but bear in mind that if you're only using parts of their design it's not really a 'scraplift' (a complete copy) more 'inspired by' which is what a lot of us do all the time, whether it's consciously or not. I'm not looking to split hairs, just to clarify

I would suggest you could mention the artist/title of their page in your description if you want to or even sent them a PM which I'm sure they'd be pleased to receive.

Did you save the one in your Gallery to your Favourites? I would copy the URL from their LO and then include it in the Description when you post yours. I would also leave a comment on theirs saying that you love it so much that you are lifting it. That should be enough.

I don't copy everything from just one layout. Most of the time, I just mix and match. Never used sketches and when I am scrapbooking never look back to see if I remember the way it was. Just whatever I feel is right and pretty.

Thank you! I will post the link and write a little something on their gallery page. Thanks for the clarification too, it makes more sense that way, lol.
