The Party Train is in the Station! Creations by AR Sept Blog Hop!

One picture is worth a thousand words right?!  So how about 6 pictures??   This is Adela's fun Party Train template - her September design for Creations by AR.  I made mine a Halloween Party Train - isn't this just the cutest thing?
 I had a package of all these Halloween sparkly foam things in my drawer for years - I knew I was saving them for something!
I made the ghosts and tree with Sizzix's dies.  The metallic signs were another thing found in my drawer.
 Look at the details on this template -   the fun junction plates shown above -  the cow catcher on the front of the engine shown below - and it all goes together super easy with Adela's illustrated step by step instructions included with the template!
 I decorated all the way around - here it is from the other side
 Adella's templates come in three formats -  PDF for printing and hand cutting (which I use), SVG and DXF that work with cutting machines such as the Silhouette.
Now the happy dance part!   You have 9 chances to win this delightful Party Train Template!  Just leave a comment on each of the Design Team posts -   Each of us will pick a winner from our own blog!

I will announce my winner on my blog on Monday!
