12/02/14 - CPC: "The Polar Express"

Hi, All!
I'm a day late.... but "better late than never", right?!
Today I am sharing the current challenge over at "Child's Play Challenges".
Here is the inspiration: 
 And my layout (click on image to enlarge):
 "Big Boy, Bigger Tree"
Journaling: "Joseph, 18, next to our 12 ft tree before the decorations. 12.8.13"
I was inspired not only by the Christmas theme but by the way the little boy is looking up
at the big train, much like my son is doing here, in the 2nd photo, at our Christmas tree.
I'm not in a very "bloggy" mood today, so I will just leave you w/ these final words:
You have until the end of the month to link up a project inspired by this challenge or the challenge we will present on 12.15.14.
Good Luck!


  1. That's cool! Do you have a photo of him as a little boy sitting next to the tree before it's decorated? That would make an awesome Now & Then layout.

    1. I don't think so, Cindy...but thanks for the idea in case I come across one!

  2. great layout! Lucky he will pose for you! Love the ornament paper and the banners you used! You layer paper like a champ :)
