Gina has a challenge to create something that reflects one of our favorite summer memories.
One of my favorite memories is from when I was little, my kids will tell you that I am still little! My dad worked for a railroad and every summer they would bring out the old passenger cars that had been refurbished and treat the employees and their families with an excursion trip. We would board in our hometown and then travel to the northern end of the line, spend a little time there and then return home. When I was in high school, one of my friends and I got to "work" on the train serving beverages. Thanks Dad for the great memories.
I used Gina's tutorial for Distressed Newsprint, love the look.
I colored this train to match the colors of train we traveled on.
