Another Challenge

I'm really enjoying my gluebook - when I can get to it. So nothing like another challenge from Mary to get me "cutting and sticking". Her image this time is of Lady Randolph Churchill. Mary suggested we could find out more about LRC over at Wikipedia....well never throw a "research" challenge at a librarian is all I can say.....
...I did know some about LRC, including her interesting love life. So I thought I might be able to include some of the juicy gossip about her in my spread like the above...

But instead I actually found a pdf of her memoirs which is much more interesting to read. You can download for free (isn't the Internet grand!) The background paper is original - came in a packet from Beth a while back....Enjoy! Jewels

  11. Oh yes! It's so right that a woman with such a rich, colourful life should have such a rich, colourful background! Perfect.I did some reading about her as well - quite a woman, though I don't know if I would have liked her particularly....... . Good to see you're doing the Collage Coterie class too, x
