Here's some advice from Mandee:
A favorite teaching technique is to always think outside the box!
Layout ideas are everywhere.
Be creative, don't just do it because it is what your neighbor is doing.
Find your own style and techniques that work for you.
Remember: There is NO wrong way to scrapbook, its all about fun.
Great advice, Mandee!!! Sometimes we as scrappers get stuck in a rut ,trying to emulate those "scrap celebs" out there and don't really find out own "style".We just need to do it for ourselves and never mind if it's worthy of praise from some unknown online scrapper on some forum somewhere in cyberspace.
HAVE FUN with your scrapbooking supplies and do it for YOU!!!!!
