Home Away From Home Layout

When most people go to London, they probably wouldn't even notice this building (The Institution of Civil Engineers), but my civil engineer husband stopped right in front of it and insisted I take his picture! Gotta love the things that make my man happy, right? I started with Sketch 338 from Sketches in Thyme, cut a few engineering die-cuts like the bridge and the road to go with the theme, and then dug through my stash and found a scrap piece of paper that looks like blue prints, which I used to anchor the other elements. In case you can't read it, the label under the bridge is actually from the photo of the building sign, and I trimmed it to say civil engineers.

Blue Prints Reversed paper (Karen Foster Designs)
