In bloglandia it is almost time for the great A to Z Challenge of 2020. For those of you unfamiliar with that, a group (sometimes very large group) get together and use the month of April to highlight the letters of the alphabet. It seemed to me that last year was a bit smaller than past years, even though it was the 10 year anniversary. I still had fun and am planning to join in again this year, my 5th.
In 2016 my theme was music. Here’s the link to that recap post where all the letters are listed. In 2017 I did a music theme again but this time I incorporated my concert scrapbook album and showcased all the bands we had actually seen. In 2018 I got away from the music and did an A to Z tour of a Michaels Arts and Crafts store where I happened to be working at the time. Last year I used crafting again and the theme was all the different kinds of cards and mini-albums I make.
I’ve decided that for this year’s challenge I’m going back to the theme I used in 2017 and work on my concert album. I figured out I can do another whole A to Z without duplicating any of the bands I used the last time! Do you realize that means we’ve been to at least 52 different concerts? Actually I know we’ve been to over 100 because I counted them. If we include comedians and plays like Rock of Ages and Jersey Boys it is about 116! There are some bands like Journey, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar and Fleetwood Mac that we’ve seen three or four times each. As in 2017 I may take the liberty of using a song title instead of the group name but you know there are a couple tricky letters we have to deal with.
As far as the scrapbooking part, I definitely have enough supplies to use.
|Binder full of embellishments.|
Stamps and stickers, papers.
And more papers and tidbits.

I have a specific Music and Dance design cartridge that should come in handy.
Also, some templates to help me add a lot of pictures in fun ways.
