Flight Lieutenant Kenneth Banks

This is my version of Anita's class page from the Cardinal Colours weekend crop back in March. I was lucky enough to make at a recent crop as I had been too busy at the weekend. The photo is my great uncle Flight Lieutenant Kenneth James Banks. The title using one of the labels on the papers has been changed to bear the motto of his Squadron 'Danger is our Opportunity'.

Kenneth was 21 when he died on 29th May 1945, having survived the WWII as a pilot. He crashed his Spitfire into the stained glass window of a church in Yorkshire. The more detailed journalling is written on the tag which is hidden under the photo which acts as a pocket.

The papers are Bo Bunny's Serenade collection. I used some tiny hole-less beads on the poppy centres and some Swirlydoo butterflies, glittered up with Stickles.

Thanks for another great class Anita, and here is her super original layout.

thanks for looking.

  1. I love your version of the page Lynn, and what a super photo to use, but what a sad story! Thank you for doing my class xx

  2. Fab page, Lynn - I am surprised I love all the floral bits with that stupendous photo. What a very dramatic motto, to a sad end. Love it!

  3. Was great to see it come together.
    Sad story though.
