Last year during the Style is Leverage class at Masterful Scrapbook Designs, one of the things I learnt about my own scrapping style was that I like a title to hook the viewer into the layout. Even though some of my most recent titles lack titles - that is more a case of no space on the layout or no alpha in the kit I am creating with. I enjoy having fun with titles and featuring them with significant real estate on my pages. Often they house one of the clusters of my visual triangle of clusters.
