Using Project Life pocket pages are probably the easiest way to get photos into my albums. I like to use them on school pages because I don't care so much about the layout, just that the story gets in the album.
I finally found some reinforced 3-hole adhesive tabs to put memorabilia into my albums. I love these! They have made it so much easier to access things like this fun passport that they collected stamps in at this event.
I usually do slight variations between Maya and Ethen's pages, to tell their individual stories at the same event.
I really need to invest in a lightbox so I can take better photos of my layouts when it's cloudy outside. It's hard to get a crisp picture of the layouts when they are in their page protectors, but you get the idea.
