Prepping For Apple Harvest

So my next big festival is in just over a week and I'm working like crazy getting stuff ready. I've come to what for me is the hardest part of making albums, adding titles and themes. I can do and decorate the albums just fine, but when it comes to making a decision on titles as well as including any quotes, it just takes me forever. I get so nervous about what to call the album and what to include in it because I don't know what kind of pictures the person may or may not have in mind for the album. Now, have I ever had an album that really didn't sell? Not really. If it didn't sell at one show, then it usually sold at the next. But still, it's very hard to make that decision to lock an album into a theme. I semi-finished three albums today and two have themes but the third one I just can't seem to get a hold on. So here they are
For this first one, I had bought this cowboy-ish paper which isn't really up my alley but I thought that it was pretty and there are a lot of people with and that ride horses in my area so I decided to try out a horse album. The front reads Crazy for Horses and the inside has two quotes about horses.

This next album was done with paper that I just love and have about used to death. I had in mind a little girls album so I used lots of crystals on the inside. I was very pleased with how the crystals on the flower pull-outs turned out. I think they look really cool. On the front I just put Little Lady on the tab and three rhinestones on the cover because I thought the paper was so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up.

And here is the one that I can't decide what it's theme should be. It's obviously for someone who really isn't into the whole really pink and girly stuff. I can see someone using it to put pictures of their sister and them in or of them and their mom perhaps. But what should the cover read? I don't know. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
