Scrap and Stamp Saturday sketch

I had to think outside the box on this sketch from Scrap and Stamp. I am not into the folded ribbon look so I made it into a train and track instead. Of course in order for me to do that I had to turn the layout on its side. I have been wanting to scrap these pictures for awhile now. I took them in 2008 at Universal Studios. I sat with my youngest (2 now) who was only 11 months at the time and Tobin who was 2 and a half (will be 4 on the 17th) while my husband and oldest road the Simpsons ride. Tobin was so cute just running his trains on the sides of the flower beds. I think he had as much fun doing that as he did riding rides.

The background paper is from Me and My Big Ideas

The font is from ACY

I used white pen on the font and siver pen on the train

The wheels of the train are chalked using cats eye charcoal

This layout also qualifies for:

SPCC: Bermuda Blue, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel
Design Dollies: BLACK, YELLOW, TURQUOISE
Stamping With Stacey Curtain Call color challenge {act 29}: Summer Yellow, Bordering Blue, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango
