Is it cheating using bootstrap to achieve responsive web chalenges?

Hello everyone. I will first of all apologie for my poor english (french is my first language). I am working on the portfolio project in the responsive web certification and i will like to use bootstrap since it brings lot of possibilities. However using bootstrap sounds to me like cheating and maybe will not allow me to apply what i have learnt during the courses.
I am a little bit confused and will like to have you advises. Thank a lot.

It say so in the page describing the projects: allowed but not recommended.

You can use HTML, JavaScript, and CSS to complete this project. Plain CSS is recommended because that is what the lessons have covered so far and you should get some practice with plain CSS. You can use Bootstrap or SASS if you choose. Additional technologies (just for example jQuery, React, Angular, or Vue) are not recommended for this project, and using them is at your own risk. Other projects will give you a chance to work with different technology stacks like React. We will accept and try to fix all issue reports that use the suggested technology stack for this project. Happy coding!

Thank for the quick reply. :blush:
