Here comes the choo choo with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder

Another crack up story with my little one!  Daddy was eating his lunch, and Jack thought he may need some help and proceeded to take his fork, and told him "choo choo train" as in, open up here comes the choo choo train!  hehe!  This kid is one funny story after another!  As you can see by the panicked look on my hubby's face, Jack was a bit too quick and not quite hitting the mouth!
I used the Boys Will Be Boys font, drawing the font and cutting out the shadow.  This is easy to do with Design Studio, you add the inside font on one layer, and the shadow cut on another layer.  Then you draw the inside font with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder and without removing the mat from the Cricut, remove the mini gel pen holder and replace it with the blade, and cut the shadow.  This makes it look like  you outlined the letters!

And again for my journaling I picked up one of my journaling circles, which is my favorite thing to do with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder!  I have a tutorial and a free download file here... journaling circles  I also did the circle around the jouranling circle by drawing a smaller circle inside the larger circle that was cut.
And here is the finished page!  I used the new Echo Park Boy's line for the papers and stickers.
