I entered the "Paper" category - I consider myself to be a paper scrapper. But then what exactly is "Hybrid" scrapping? According to Wikipedia we're talking about a digital page, with some ribbons, brads and tags stuck on after printing it out. That's not me at all. However the judges over at UKS have decreed it to be any combination of digital and paper elements resulting in a page you can hold and as long as there is at least ONE item (other than journalling or a plain photo) that started life on the computer it will count as "Hybrid". I can live with that. I sometimes print out a journalling spot to use, or type (white) text onto a photo before printing it out, or use a dingbat font to add flowers to a page ... So maybe I can be a "Hybrid" scrapper too.
