Challenge Two: Your Day in History

All right, I'm getting this up early, but since SOMEONE thinks that if I sleep late, I fell off the planet ( :P), I figure I might as well get on with the party while I'm here!

Your Challenge for Day Two ....

Your Day in History. This can be for you, a child, your spouse -- feel free to choose anyone close to you. From there, look up the date they were born for a historical happening. This will be your subject matter for the project. The goal is to create a scrapbook page or birthday card in any size, showcasing news items from that date of birth for the person you chose.

Good sites are:

Today in History

Today in History -- Historynet.com

For example, my baby sister was born on August 27. Krakatoa's violent eruption that tore the volcano apart was on August 27, though 80+ years before her birth.

Rules:

1. The birth date must be on your project, as well as the year/years for the historical happenings.

2. At least one stamp must be used (even if it's alphabet, or month stamps, etc). Bonus points for QKD stamps (we have a lot of great month stamps in the store!)

3. Links to your projects must be posted in this thread by Midnight on February 2nd.

Have fun, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
