Victorian Lizabeth and the Music Hall

Welcome to another new challenge over at Creative Moments. Challenge 92 has the optional twist of Showers and/or Rainbows and is sponsored by, where there are lots of lovely images - do go and check out their store! I used Victorian Lizabeth  for my card:

 I used a Papermania ready embossed card, with dots embossed, and coloured it using a rainbow ink pad. I then added glitter glue in the appropriate colours to the dots, to give the effect of rain. The image was coloured with Sharpie markers and die-cut using the third X-cut large labels die. I then added corner panels from some free double sided peacock papers that I thought matched the victorian colour scheme, and die-cut using a Marianne Collectables die. Finally I added two daisies to finish.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
MMM - April showers bring May flowers
Diecuttin Divas - #263 Daisies or Diamonds
Deep Ocean - #127 Dots/Stripes
Alphabet Challenge - D for Dot (embossed background)
Crafty Calender - Anything Goes

Audio Book Review
My Old Man by John Major
This story advertises itself as a personal history of music hall. As such I was expecting to hear about music hall from the perspective of John Majors father (as indicated by the title of the book), with personal anecdotes, meetings and opinions. Or at least in-depth information about what his father actually did. Therefore, I was quite disappointed when his dad is only briefly mentioned on disc 9, and then talked about in a bit more detail on disc 11, out of 12!
I would say this is just a basic history of music hall, with few personal anecdotes at all throughout the book. However, for a fan of music hall history this is probably a good place to start researching as it does look at the main players throughout the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, as well as the changes that were undertaken through the period of music hall existence.

Thank you for looking
