The inspiration for the page came from this weeks challenge on UKS, I followed a sketch, but added my own twist to the circle by making it from 'barbed wire' I printed and cut out from cardstock. I used the Tim Holtz barbed wire mask to colour the card too. The poppies are stamped and cut out using a Papermania stamp set, the swirl is a Sizzix die, as are the title letters.
I journalled about our families experiences, as my Grandparents lived through that night, and although Mum wasn't born until the end of the war, she has shared her own mums memories of the war in Coventry. For me, this is what scrapbooking is all about, making history personal.
