Sketchy Thursdays - You & Me & The Train

I decided to jump into Sketchy Thursdays this week at the very last minute...and by last minute I mean, I started my layout at 9:30pm. This post had to be up by 10pm to make the deadline. So...here is my page! Enjoy!

This is the sketch:

And here is my take on it using a photo I took as we took the train into Boston last summer.

You & Me & The Train




Incidentally, this was the same day as the 'Kidney Stone Incident' - funny...it had such a peaceful beginning! HA!

Gotta say, I kinda love this page. And to have done it in 20 minutes! Yikes! That's got to be a record for me! I love this photo and I love that I now have it on a layout! YAY!!!!
