Nicole's post about titles got me thinking about actually coming up with titles. Titles are seriously my least favorite part of scrapbooking. I dread doing titles more than anything. I will do about 30 layouts before I actually tackle the titles. Not only do I detest coming up with them, but I also don't like to cut them and turn them into stickers. I think my biggest obstacle is coming up with cute, creative titles. Where do you get your ideas from? I usually end up searching non-stop for titles and still can't find ones I like. A lot of times I will take pics of my LO and send them to a scrappy friend or two for help.

I will usually google search for titles. I don't use them on every page because I don't always think its needed. Plus I try to do super simple ones like "Pumpkin Hunting 2010" so really no thoughts required .

Some pages are easy for me, most are not though. I to have that same problem. Google is great, I copy from others (scraplifting), and I too have bugged others for suggestions. Actually I was just thinking about posting some pics asking for a title suggestion.

I can't do a page without a title! If I can't think of one off the top of my head then I have a few sites I go to.

Ah, thank you, Kelsey!! I'll have to check those out. Something like this should be added to a sticky or subforum!

Yeah, I can't do pages without titles either (unless the page speaks for itself and doesn't need one, and therefore isn't ever goign to have one). Just like I can't do pages without pictures. I need all my elements there.

My titles are mostly boring. lol It's a lot easier when you don't expect yourself to come up with something witty, unique or cute for every page! I gave that up years ago.

yep, pretty boring titles here too. It's hard to be creative sometimes.

I love having titles that pop and just work with the page. I tried and tried to come up with a clever title for a pregnancy running page, but it just didn't happen.

I do a few pages without titles, but most have them.. I keep a notebook and write down a title when it catches my eye or when I think of a cute one, I use quotes a lot too. If all else fails, I look online.

Thank you for the links!

Oh, I love the sites! Glad I saw this thread!

Yeah, I most often do not get creative. It's "Christmas 2008" and such. Sometimes I try to do simple alliteration....like if I have pictures of DD "Dressing Up", I title it "Dressing Up Diva" or "Easter Pics" becomes "Easy Easter Fun" or "Summer Fun" becomes "Silly Summer Fun". Also, rhyming if you can come up with any ideas. I did Rub a Dub Dub, Bella in the Tub for DD's 1st bath pics. "Fun in the Sun" is an easy one for summer pics.
