Overcoming Challenges - Too much journaling!

Yesterday I showed a couple of pictures of a scrapbook pages from the memory book I just finished.  Today I'll show you how I handled a specific challenge I faced with it. (This picture is actually more of a light pink than it looks.) Most of the pages were entries that other people supplied -- I had asked for a picture of them & a message to their teachers.  In this case, the person wrote a BOOK!  Even using fairly small type, there was no room for their photo!  I solved this problem by printing their photo on a little card like this: (personal contact information has been blurred)
I then took an A2 envelope that I had that coordinated with the paper (all in shades of light pink - though the pictures don't show the pink as well as they should).  I sealed the envelope and cut off one side to form a pocket.  I used a circle punch to punch a half circle in the scrapbook page and the front edge of the envelope pocket, then created a pull tab with a little tag - all attached with eyelets & ribbon.  Voila - picture can be pulled out to be seen, but the message is intact.
