Okay so, help me out here, girls. (please) tee hee
This is the wall above Caleb's bookshelf. It was cute "as is" with just the train and other vehicles but I REALLY REALLY wanted to try out the red QK vinyl I've had for a few months so today I made some cute little wall words using the vinyl, my Expression and SCAL.
But it looks "off" to me. I feel I need another "transportation" sound word on the right side, between the airplane and the top of the train.
What word do you suggest and how do you spell it? Doug and I haven't been able to come up with anything that we actually know how to spell, LMBO ;)

Also, I'm not sure if I showed you yet but here is a 2 piece wall hanging I bought on eBay a few months ago for Caleb's room. I *heart* it.
If you want the name of the seller, email or comment and I'll get you her info. Her work ROCKS and it's VERY reasonably priced!
Anyway, thought I'd take a pic of that while I was taking pics of the other. TIA :)

ETA: Caleb's new horsie is named Happy the Horsie... tee hee. And, Caleb can now climb up on Happy by himself. Guess he got sick of having to come get Doug or I whenever he wanted up on Happy, LOL.

I sure have enjoyed seeing your photos of Christmas and Caleb. Looks like you have some wonderful scrapbook layouts ahead of you. Your eye is telling you right when you say something is missing from the right. It is often called the rule of three. Our eyes prefer a group of three over two as well as odd over even numbers. Sorry I can't help you any more than that except to say why don't you point to each picture and see what Caleb says about the sounds they make.

What about just the word "FLY". I love the cutouts. You make me want to try the vinyl now. I have been eye balling it but was on the fence. Now I want to try! Beautiful idea! Hugs,Heidi

Oh and FYI.. The QuickKutz vinyl is larger and cheaper than the Cricut vinyl.. I recommend it over the Cricut version.
I got my vinyl half off at 2Peas. It might still be clearanced, go check it out!

great tip on asking Caleb about the sounds. how can you beat that?!

and i haven't tried the vinyl yet either. i keep looking at it, trying to picture it on the wall.

and thanks for the shout out Jenny!!!
