Thank God it's Friday - Architecture - Lilli Marlene

Thanks for the great challenge. I have taken an old photograph and added some layers to it.
The image is from Lunagirl collage sheet. (Worn overlays Berna Datema and Manuela Zimmerman both of Scrapbookgraphics).
Some (ahem) younger bloggers may not know the song "Lilli Marlene" which begins "Underneath the Lamplight" and is about a young woman who is waiting for her soldier sweetheart underneath the lamplight. I think it was very popular during WW1 - not that I am admitting to being alive then!!

  14. How gorgeous, Marie. I love the architecture in particular. So clear and sharp. Your digicrafting is really amazing.

    I've heard the song, but you'd have to be pushing 100 to have remembered it being sung!
