Here is a look at today's free template which can be downloaded for free HERE (link expires Feb 8, 2010)

Here is how I used this template:
Pure Love Kit used

Now, why does this layout work?
1.  Common Margins:   The entire layout is surrounded by a common margin which unifies the layout.
2.  Proximity:   The photos are spatially connected to each other because of their proximity. This placements gives a unified look to the layout, and unity creates a feeling of wholeness.
3.  Visual Triangle: (pink color) Placing items on my scrapbook page in a triangle allows the viewer's eyes to see the page as a whole rather than being distracted by one or two pieces on the page.  A visual triangle helps the viewer's eye to travel around the page and can be created on a scrapbook layout using photos, embellishments, or event text such as your title, date, and journaling.
