I've been scrapbooking since 1995. Just before I got married, a coworker invited me to a Creative Memories party and I was off and running. I drank the Kool Aid for quite a while and was even a Consultant for several years before I discovered "modern" (paper) scrapbooking in about 2005. I opened my own brick-and-mortar scrapbook store in 2007, but I folded with the economy in 2009. I've dabbled in digi for years, but only got serious about learning PSE and now PS CC in the last several years. I still have one foot in each world, however, since I work in Customer Service for a paper scrapbook kit company.
