Can you find pics on the net and print them for the scrapbook? Is it ok to do this on regular paper it not being acid free, and use it for added stuff to decorate your pages with?

You can save most pictures to your computer. right click on the image and then click "save as" . I wouldnt suggest you use reg paper if nothing else than because its so thin. I didnt even think about buying a printer big enough for 12 x 12 paper, so I use my personal trimmer and trim cardstock down to fit the printer. ;)

If the paper you are using is not acid free, I would recommend either buying the Archival Mist spray to treat it, OR make sure that it does not come in direct contact with your photos.

If you "lift" pictures off the Web, it would be a good idea to jot a light note on the back of your pages to ensure that you never submit the page for publication or for a contest -- and of course you should never in any way sell anything that has someone else's work on it.

I copy and paste images all the time to use in my LO's. I print them out on card stock, ink jet vellum, transparencies or photo paper, depending on the LO.
