I usually make chronological yearly albums but I have so many photos from my trip to the Harry Potter studios I have decided to make a separate album. I want to make a title page but I can't decide what to include..just title and date or 1 photo or a collage of all my photos. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm not GG, obviously, but for albums like the one you described I make a title page that has the name of the place (or if I visited multiple places it could be something like "European Vacation" and the dates. I do not include many photos on those pages. I will either re-use a favorite photo that is already on a LO in that album, or I use a photo or two that I like but couldn't fit on any of the other LOs in the album. I make my title page last, so by the time I make it I already know which photos made it on to LOs. I don't think I have ever journaled on a title page, but I journal pretty extensively on my regular LOs so the whole story is covered within the album.

ETA: I use these LOs as a chance to show off a really cool PP, embellishments, or technique that might get lost elsewhere in the album. That's part of the reason I don't include tons of journaling or photos on those pages.

I have done different types of Title pages.

My Munich album - started after a 2 week visit before we knew we would live here - has no photos, and just general 'Travel' phrases, like 'explore' and 'discover'.
My Italy album - started after the same trip; we had a weekend in Verona - has a Collage of photos and the word 'Italy'
My Cruise album - October last year - has the 'Coming Aboard' photo the cruise line took, and the dates and cities of the cruise.

I feel like somewhere along the way I've either seen GG or her mild mannered friend, Shimelle, do a title page for a Harry Potter album. I'll search around and see if I can find it, but maybe someone else knows what I'm talking about!

I usually use a photo. Here's an example of one I did for my HI album:

Kauai title page

I have others, just not posted yet. I have one of a road trip where the pic is of the car trunk open and stuffed to the gills with stuff for the trip.
