2nd To Last Team CJ

Val's CJ theme was Time Traveller. If you could go anywhere in time who would you be, where would you go?
Difficult one this. There was a problem with the posting & I only got 1 weekend to work on this CJ. I had planned to do Elizabeth Bennett, but Pauline had already covered her & Mr Darcy perfectly so then I turned to one of my fav films, Fried Green Tomatoes, but couldn't find anything decent to print off, desperate times called for desperate measures & I decided Vivian Leigh was the only way to go. She was such a beauty & got to star with the top leading men.
I adored her portrayal of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind. Having seen the movie several times you realise that instead of being a hard faced cow, Scarlett was in fact, a love torn woman who fell for the wrong man. Now, haven't we all done that ladies!

Double Page Unopened.
The ribbon opened to reveal a gallery of photos & a bit of personal history.
Under her main photo was her main life story.

I ended up very pleased with how this came out.

This is utterly brilliant! I love how you have put this together. I am currently in the middle of my first ever CJ and altho its a bit scary I am enjoying it immensely. btw, GWTW is one of my fave films, I also have the sequel 'scarlett' and once spent a saturday watching the whole 10 hours straight through! lol
