Construction Zone

This layout was inspired by a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.  It's been a while since I joined in over there, but this sketch (with some liberal tweaking on my part) was just right for the photographs:

I included some altered chipboard for the challenge at Mystical Scrapbooks cybercrop.  I cut the frame in half, then heat embossed with glitter embossing powder:

This layout was also inspired by Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge with their June Tools theme.  I put aside my pile of travel photographs and searched out some photographs of my husband working at home in the yard.  He uses all kinds of power tools in his projects, but for this one it was back to the old trenching tool while laying the foundations for the new duck enclosure.
