When all is said and done, you have to decide if a scrapbook says and appears as you would like. You usually are your own best and worst critique. In the end you only have to please yourself, but usually your pages are created for sharing with others–family and friends. In the end this is your page or book. Too often we seek perfection. Scrapping is not a perfect science. Perfection is in the “eye of the beholder.”
The above having been said, you would be well to step back, take a deep breath, and look at your page’s and layout. Does it present itself the way you would have it? Is the message you are trying to convey coming through, or is there something missing . . . or too much accent, color, etc.? Before you permanently attach everything to your page is the best time to put your page through your critical eye. You are the only one who really knows what you want your page to say–that given, you have a bit of an obligation to be the true critic of your page. If change is warranted–then make it, but only if your page is lacking, or is over loaded with something. After, and only after, you have reviewed your page for its content and structure with a feeling of assurance it says, visually and otherwise, what you want it to say, is it really ready to be added to your page collection.
Make it fun. Make it real. Make it say something you want said. When you do–then you have arrived.
