Excellent questions, Lori

Journaling: I like to journal in the scrapbook pages that I keep just for my family. Anything that I post or show in my demonstrations, I do very little journaling on. I guess I don't want to "spill my guts" in examples, and I really HATE my handwriting. If you are scrapping just for fun, I would do whatever is fun. If you are scrapping for future generations, then journaling will definitely add a lot.

I always mat my photos. It helps to pull the color from the photo into the colors of the page. And it makes the photos stand out so nice. I like to draw the eye to the photos, not to my embellishments. If I were you, I'd try things matted, unmatted, think mats, thin mats, double mats...all different ways until you find what you like.

There is no right or wrong--just make it something that appeals to you and it will be perfect!
