I just have to add that I love the grid/graph paper as the background. Not TOO much - but not a blank white space either. Love it!
Girl - you are something else. I am behind on watching your vids. So don't think I have not been loving them. :-) This is AMAZING! I am determined to get my boys' school albums caught up and I am RE-WORKING what I started ten years ago....I love the bones of your title page. The artwork page is adorable, too. I am going to go watch the middle pages next. I am glad I waited and got to watch them in order. Adorable LO. Your children are SO BLESSED!! Thanks for the creative inspiration. You rock, as always. :-)
Thank You for sharing Your work and scrapbooking tricks! And it`s great, that I can watch Your video from my house in Poland :o)
Wow - what a great layout!
I love watching you work...it's fun to see how you play around with things, pull things up and move them around until you're happy with it - it's just plain fun to watch how you create! ***maybe it makes me not feel so crazy about doing it myself! : ) ***
"Do you know where I could find a pocket page like used from Becky Higgins?"
No, I don't. Sorry!
Another superb layout, Nichol!

This week's layout coordinates with THIS [twopeasinabucket.com] layout I did a couple of weeks ago. It's the remaining 2 Kindergarten pages for my oldest son's school album. I used many of the same papers as I did for the previous layout to have some continuity among all the pages for his Kindergarten year.
I incorporated lots of stamping to make it easy to replicate the design, if I choose, for the following school years. I love that I don't have to worry about running out of letter/number stickers when using stamps. The options are endless and you can stamp them in any color!
I used my son's school photo on the title page. I prefer the smaller size photo instead of the traditional 8x10 photo for the title pages.
For the ending Kindergarten page I used lots of small pieces of some of my favorite memorabilia from his first year in school. I added lots of little bits of stickers, punched shapes and more to really add a little “something” to the memorabilia heavy page.
