Artful Readers Club - Three Women of Liverpool.

My book this week is by Helen Forrester and I thoroughly enjoyed it, read late into the night to finish it. It is another story set in the time of the second World War. This one is about the air raids on Liverpool which began on May 1st 1941 and in particular the effect they had on the interwoven lives of three women. As in my last read it is the courage of these brave women which stands out in the face of adversity. The ability to find happiness among such horror and destruction is amazing.
My Mum and Dad met and became engaged at this time, marrying in 1943 so I made a photograph of them, from that time, the focal point of a scrapbook page. I worked in Craft Artist 2 and used some embellishments from a Serif kit called 40's Wartime.

Crafty Ann's Challenge - Sound of Music

I love this paper from Crafty Ann's latest collection so used it with a photo mask to create a scrapbook page of John playing in his band. I added some swirls in CA2.
Do take a look at the creations of the rest of the DT here and I hope that you will be inspired to join us this week especially as it will be Crafty Ann's final blog challenge. It has been a pleasure to use Ann's lovely papers and artwork as a member of her design team and a pleasure to visit all your blogs and see your lovely artwork. Ann's shop here will be closing on April 5th so do visit to buy your favourites  before that date.
