All Aboard!

Spoiler Alert! If this is Laura, get off of this blog right now! You will spoil your surprise for Saturday!



















































Okay, everyone else can keep looking. I know I should post this after the baby shower for Laura but I cannot help it! This train book is for my friend and co-worker Laura who is having a baby boy this winter. Her husband loves trains and the baby's room is all trains so I made a train book. (Good thinkin' huh!?) I thought I would find a train on one of my Cricut cartridges, but no!!! So, I used the Cricut Design Studio and my trusty George cartridge and made my own train. If you want the cut file, just let me know. (I am still trying to find out how to send it!) Anyways, I made the pattern and then traced and cut it out of chipboard. I covered the trains with papers from K & Company. The papers are called Small Wonders and I used the Boy 2 sided-papers along with some of their matching embellishments. I love this book! It turned out really cute and really looks like a train! I hope Laura likes it too! We cannot wait to meet little Tyler who is already a blessing! Congratulations!

Holly, I absolutely love the train book! I am amazed that you made the design all by yourself. As Jillian said, "You are so talented"! I can't wait to add Tyler's pictures to the book. This will be such a fun way to share Tyler's pictures with our friends and family. Thank you for the wonderful gift!

(P.S. I didn't peak at the blog early...and I'm glad I didn't spoil the surprise :-) It was great!)

Laura
