Local activity

Here are some layout of some local activities we have done.

Fairytale Town:

I can't recall where the patterned paper is from (oops!) and the solid paper is from DCWV. The title was done with the Alphalicious Cricut cartridge. Of course I have got some Primas on there and some miscellaneous brads.

Fairytale Town is a cool place in Sacramento that is basically a park for kids with toys that are done in storybook/fairytale themes. There is a slide made to look like a big shoe ("There was an old woman who lived in a shoe..."), a "crooked mile" walkway, a pirate ship, a castle, a teepee, and so many other things to explore. Oh, and I can't forget the infamous piece of swiss cheese! There are even a few animals. It has been around forever and definitely needs some new paint on a few of the pieces, but the kids love it.

Train Museum:

The patterned paper is from a paper swap and the cardstock is just from those packs of untextured cardstock that you can pick up in JoAnn's or Michaels. I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge for the titile on this one and inked the title and the cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. The buttons are from a cheap package I picked up in the sewing department of WalMart.

The train museum in Sacramento is so fun. There are all sorts of trains to see...some you can even walk through. I love the dining car that has displays of different dish sets that were used on different railways (and are much more fancy than any dishes I own!) and the mail car that shows how they sorted and delivered the mail on a moving train. The second floor of the museum has pictures of trains and also a big selection of different toy trains...even Thomas! Definitely cool for the whole family.
