Creations by AR blog hop-Party Train





Welcome to Creations by AR blog hop! Today we are showing off this very fun new template named Party Train!  I tell you...I had soooo many idea's for this template, I just had a hard time making up my mind what to do! Oh the possibilities! Can you see this as a BOO Train, or maybe a Birthday Train with the Birthday child's picture inserted in the window? I chose decorated this train in a Christmas holiday theme, adding some snowflakes from the Silhouette Store and hubcaps using circle punches.

I have to admit, when I saw this I thought 'Oh Boy, this is going to take a while to make!' In reality it took less than an hour to make all this-from deciding on the paper (older retired paper from SU!) to decorating and all! It takes me a lot longer to make a card!

As always, if you hop along and see what the other teamies made, you will increase your chances of winning this Party Train template or the Frame It Party Train Card! Each Design Team Member will be giving away a choice of templates-just leave a comment here for your chance! Winner to be announced Monday, October 1st.

See that little green cab with the windows? It pops out and can be used as a little gift box as well---the red roof is removable!  I did add the plow onto the front just a little different-but hey, you can do whatever you want!


Here is a list of the Creations by AR Design Team-I am last in line! If you came here from Patti's blog, you are right on track, otherwise you may want to pop over and start at Adela's blog!

Am I really suppose to believe you did this in one hour! You must have been drinking some Jolt Cola! This is fabulous. I tried looking at the "sneak peak" and thought it was just a cool card. Boy, wa I wrong! Regarding your drawer....I thought you were Ms. Organized...makes me feel a tad better. I'm giving my craft room one of THOSE LOOKS...time to clean out.
