Winston Churchill Layout

I placed most of my pictures from the Churchill War Rooms in pocket pages since we took so many, but here are a few from the museum. The museum explores the life of Winston Churchill from birth to death. Isn't interesting how immediately identifiable Churchill is, whether he's being praised by a supporter or vilified by an opponent?

War Rooms Layout

If you ever visit London, be sure to go to the Churchill War Rooms and Museum. It's a fascinating look both at the life of Winston Churchill and at the underground bunker where much of the work of overseeing the Allied plans for WWII was carried out. We took a ton of photos, but since it was dimly lit and there were lots of plastic partitions separating us from the rooms themselves, the photos didn't come out the best. I picked a few to showcase, and the rest are going into photo storage pages. For the Splitcoast Stamper's September Variety Challenge, I decided to use some of the clothing tag inspiration that I've been collecting. The tag I chose came off my son's shirt, and it was pretty basic, so I just recreated it using an irregular hexagon, a brown marker, and a die-cut that said confidential. Clothing tags are a great source of inspiration, so I may have to pull out another one from my pile and do this challenge again!
