70 years on...

Today is National Holocaust Day, marking 70 years since Auschwitz was liberated. This is not what I would typically blog about but whilst in Poland visiting friends in 2012 my family & I visited Auschwitz and saw for ourselves the vivid reminders of the atrocities the prisoners endured. Seeing these  camps with our own eyes had a profound effect on us all.

 The train tracks at Birkenau.
So today survivors & families gather to honour the victims and remember...
If you ever find yourself near Krakow I would recommend you visit so these atrocious are never forgotten. There is a recommended lower age limit for children due to the images & collections within the museum.

Using your Dies x

Last week over on the Hey Little Magpie blog I shared the pages I'd made for my January post so I thought I'd share them here with you too.
I concentrated on using dies & all the details of the dies used can be found in my post here.

Lovely.
Created using the AC Shimelle & Crate Maggie Holmes open book ranges.
Love L.A.
Created using 5 different dies & the AC Amy Tan - Stitched paper range.
Hop on over to the blog for all the details x
