Configure 2 Cisco routers to pass VLAN traffic over VPN

We're trying to set up a point to point VPN between a remote location and the main building.

Remote location: 2801 & 3750 switch
Main building: 2811 plugged into a 2950. The 2950 is connected to our edge 2811. 2950 also connected to our 3750 switch stack

So far we've configured the 2801, put a laptop behind it w a public IP and have gotten out to the Internet.
The 2811 is connected to a 2950, which is connected to a 2811 (our border router)

We've created site to site VPN tunnel w/preshare key using the SDM wizard but haven't tested yet. Hope to do that today.

Two questions. One, do we have the necessary components to make this work? Two, how can we pass VLAN traffic over the link? The idea is to have all remote office traffic come back to the main building and then either go on our network or out to the Internet.

Apologies if this is confusing. I'm a VERY rusty CCNA.
