Big boy's toy...

I loved the challenge at Scrap the Boys this month - with the wonderful theme of Big Boys' Toys.  I had so many ideas, it was hard to choose just one.  My husband is constantly tinkering with all manner of "boys' toys" and I have quite an odd collection of photographs of his projects.

On our recent winter break we stopped at Wallangarra and enjoyed exploring the old rail station and surrounding rail yards:

I used some old generic papers and kept the embellishment to a minimum, but I did play around with ink and embossing powders on the title:

Bazzill Basics - Starmist cardstock
Kraft cardstock
A2Z Scraplets Cog Set 3 chipboard shapes
MFT Die-namics - Little Letters diecut alphabets
Tsukineko VersaMagic - Sahara Sand fluid ink
Gel-a-tins Gelly Powder - Northern Lights glitter embossing powder
