Grayson's Train





I just have to say, I am very proud of myself! I bought this letter train from the craft store a long time ago, and it's just been sitting in Grayson's room all naked and unfinished! So I had a flash of inspiration -- Gray's room is a jungle-animal theme, so I decided I would paint every letter a different animal print! I did it all free-hand, and I think it turned out pretty darn cute!!! The train engine and caboose aren't done yet -- I don't quite know what I want to do with them yet. But they'll be cute someday, too :) If you can't tell, the letters are: G: giraffe print; R: tiger print; A: alligator print (couldn't think of a better way to do it!); Y: palm tree (okay, not an animal print, but I thought it was cute and fit in with the theme); S: zebra print; O: turtle shell; N: leopard print. It was so much fun to do! And a cute little addition to Gray's room that I hope he will enjoy for years to come! :D
