Do you take the same model of big truck and make it smaller and smaller and more specific as your child grows? How do you figure out if your truck is bigger or smaller than you thought? Do you draw your truck on the outside of the box and then change your mind? Do you just go out and get the thing to go the way you want it to?

We’ll be keeping our eyes open for those kids in the comments on this post as well!
I spent several weeks laying out the plan of action on top of my old school! It took way more time than my computer would have allowed, but that was part of the job and I got to do it.
I drew out the entire layout page, taking into consideration all the angles and the spacing for the trucks and trucks on the sides of the box. I also included everything else on top that kids would see—the pictures, the trucks, the instructions, pictures of my son holding up the truck (for this project), and a number of other photos I have shot over the years while I was in the business.
I took photos of each step and then cut a hole for the picture I wanted to put on top. On this one, I’m using an old photo of my old daughter holding a truck up the driveway, and a few pics of my
