I work on a page until I like it, never glue anything down until I am happy with it. If I am at a crop I may ask a friend what they think. If I am at home I may lay it aside for a day or two or three... It seems that eventually just the right idea comes along and I finish it up.
I look at other people's pages and sometimes wish I could do more embellishing but I have tried it and it's just not me. I do a lot of clean and simple LOs.
I like Stickles,inking edges, matting pics, and using some embellishments that relate to my pic or theme. I don't get putting a bird on a LO that hasn't anything bird-related in the pic. I have a friend that does that kind of thing and I love her stuff. It's just not me.
Basically, do what makes YOU happy. It's your scrapbook, your memories, your style!
