Layout about a documentary called My Name is Charlie

I've created a layout for Soul Scrappers' challenge GRAB5April.  You have to choose 5 items from your stash and use at least one from each item on your layout.

I chose these 5 items.

Here is the layout I created.

It's a pretty exciting story actually. I have a hidden journalling section under the top photo as there was not enough room on the page.

One of my ancestors is Modesto Varischetti. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modesto_Varischetti)  Made famous by surviving a gold mining accident.  There's a book by Tom Austen called the Entombed Miner that tells the story. I have a signed copy.

There's been a documentary made about the story by the people in the photos of my layout.  They interviewed my Mum and I to be a part of it.

I only just got to watch the film this year as it was released in English.  We shot the footage in 2013.
