Scrapbook Folio

I'm proud to share with y'all the folio I made featuring my youngest grandson's first 5 years (he's only 3, so there are a lot of blank places)....I used the small Tim Holtz Collections folio and paper collections from Graphic 45 and Bundle of Joy and regular cardstock. I LOVE how it turned out!

And here are some photos of the individual features:
