      Danika - Hi Lindsey! Can I just say how nice it is to have another ygouner person doing PL who doesn't have kids?! I noticed you are struggling with photos falling out of the pockets. I have the problem too, especially when I use some of the newer designs or the page protectors from We R Memory Keepers. What I've been doing is just placing a couple dots of glue with my Martha Stewart Glue pens along the edges. Works great! Unless I have something that I know I'll want to remove later down the road- then I think your tape idea would be perfect! Thanks! February 28, 2012 6:56 pm
