Choo-Choo Birthday at CAS-ual Friday

I have been in such a 'boy-themed' creative mood
lately and I have a feeling it's because we are still
awaiting the arrival of our newest grandson
{which should be any day}

This week's challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays
is to use stickers or rub-ons and is sponsored by...

and each of our designers was given their choice
of beautiful designs from their vinyl 'Stickerz' collection.
These are so cool, removable & repositionable.

I chose this fabulous set...

Birthday Trains

Because I've been thinking about all my grandsons, it was a 
no-brainer on which set I would choose.
5 year-old Caleb has always loved
'Thomas the Tank Engine' and this set definitely
reminded me of him.
I just added these fab clouds made from dies by

I hope you'll come play this could win
a $35 shopping spree over at EAD Designs!
