Scholastic "Pull & Tuck" Layout

Hey Everyone,
So for this final challenge for my month as a Guest Designer on the CTMH Heart 2 Heart Challenge I decided to "pull out" and "tuck in" one of favorite layouts from a previous workshop
This layout uses the scholastic paper pack from the current CTMH idea book along with milepost shapes and the Stamp sets School Rocks and Chilhood Portraits (retired).

Now for the hidden "pulls and tucks" which were inspired from the retired Magic How to Book by Jeannette Lynton...
