Well there is the actual Paper Scrapping board. (Not saying you have to go Just wasn't sure if you saw it.)
Here's some info on what digital scrapbooking is:
In essence, digital scrapbooking is the same thing as paper scrapbooking...only you create your layouts on your computer using digital scrapbooking products! Is one better than the other? No...well, at least not in my opinion - LOL! They are just different forms of the same thing in the end We scrapbook to have records of our memories, families and life...and you will get that with either! One common misconception with digital scrapping is that not only do we CREATE our layouts on the computer...but we KEEP them there as well NOOOO - LOL! Well...we do keep them on our hard drives...BUT - most of us also print (or have printed) our layouts and put them into scrapbooking albums just like a paper scrapper would!
(read the rest here TheShabbyShoppe.com - Digital Scrapbooking Products)
The main thing is you have to have a computer program that lets you work with editable layers. (examples - Photoshop CS, Photoshop Elements, PaintShop Pro, or GIMP) GIMP is 100% free, and some people will tell you it can't do as much, but I have a friend who does all her scrapping on it and she's always getting featured on stuff. You can also get free trial downloads of the other programs too. I advise starting with a free program or trial and free products before you invest any money into it.
Siggies are also made with digital scrapbooking products, using some of the same principles and digital scrapbooking.

Great Advice. I think that most people that paper scrap find digital scrappbooking much quicker & switch. I do both, but find that with my children & my job digital is a lot faster & I get more accomplished. I hope that Trish was able to answer your questions. I hope that you come back because you're hooked as well. Lol. Good Luck!
