Seriously, though, whenever I'm asked this question I always tell the story of one of the first classes I ever took at Get It Scrapped, in which I learned the importance of adding a detail or two, not for luck, but for charm.
Because it's that "charm" which will bring a page alive. It takes any layout from scrapbooking by numbers - cut the paper, stick it down, add a title - and makes it personal, individual; and it's easy, then, to get a feel for what kind of a person a scrapbooker might be. And I think that's what we're looking for: make page about yourself, or your family, or friends, and what you are doing is telling us something about their character, or your own.
Through the choices you make you can give away enough of yourself to charm your viewer and let her see the real you. And that will draw her in. I hope. That's what I try for. That's what I keep an eye out for when I'm admiring layouts in a gallery. If I think Ooh, look at that, I'll hit that Pin It button in a flash.
What about you? What makes you pin? or stop? What delights you? And are you adding it to your own pages?
Today I'm trying a white fluffy bunny tail. And a pair of ears which are, deliberately, a little tricky to spot. Because you know me: I'll have a go at anything, once.
