At 19 months old Benji is obsessed with trains. He plays with little else and wants to wear his Thomas the tank Engine t-shirt and shoes everywhere. These photos show him playing happily at his Oma and Opas house with his Thomas mat and some of his favourite trains and cars. When I saw the new Basic Grey 'Oliver' collection which is made for train-mad little boys I just had to have it all. The above LO is the first one that I have made using the Oliver papers. Thewooden vine is from Kaisercraft. I painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint and used metallic rub-ons to age it. The result is a very boyish layout with a touch of softness about it to reflect how tiny and sweet our little train enthusiast really is :) Thanks for looking.
