Okay, back to my project I wanted to share with you today.. I actually was able to get another layout done before the week officially ended, Woo Hoo!!! This layout is for pictures I have of my son putting together is favorite alphabet train puzzle.. The basic design for this page came from this weeks Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge ... I just love this sketch and how my page turned out :0)


To create my train-tastic layout I used:

*Gypsy (to hide the engine on 2 of the train car cuts)
*Create a Critter (trains)
*Plantin Schoolbook (Title)
*Everyday Character Face Parts and More Stamps (Peachy Keen)
*Paper (K&Company and the Paper Studio)
*Ink
*White Pen
*Black Marker
*Small & Large Brads
*Ric Rac
*White Puffy Paint
*Pop Dots

Challenges:
