We are 3/4 of the way through the A to Z Challenge. I’m hanging on by a thread…or in my case a glue stick. “Q” is for Queen and I’m sorry I didn’t get to see them when Freddie Mercury was around but I have seen them twice with Adam Lambert and both shows were excellent.
The first time was in 2017 and then we saw them again last year during the big “Bohemian Rhapsody” explosion. For the 2017 pictures I chose this paper from Paper Wishes called Paper Painting. I love the rich colors in these paper collections. This set even has some tags and embellishments to match. Bonus, on the Paper Wishes site they give them away as a free download! Very nice way to get some cool stash.
There’s no way I’m going to be able to scrap all these pictures in time. The stack is about 1 inch thick!
I found this crown on my Slice Machine design card called “Just Chillin’ Teen.”
I had some old gold foil paper and I think it worked great. This was a bit of gift wrap paper from the old days when the kids had to sell wrapping paper as a fund raiser. They used to give a sample swatch of all the different kinds you could buy and I kept them all these years to use in crafting. That paper is probably 25 years old!
I wanted gold numbers to mark the date but didn’t have them so I used some silver sparkly ones and colored over them with gold marker. Pleased with that result.
Here’s page one. I popped some of the flowers from the freebie sheet on foam dots and added a jewel in between the numbers.
And page two. We stopped at our favorite restaurant, Louisiana Bistro, before the show. James (the owner) was always very friendly and let me take his picture this time. Sadly, they closed down shortly after that. We really miss it! There was a guy sitting near us who worked with a company called “Date Knight.” They plan dates for you. Don’t know if they are still around either but how fitting that it was date (k)night and a Queen concert!
Here’s the setlist from that night. It was a great show.
People may say that because Freddie Mercury has passed and John Deacon no longer tours that is is a cover band but that offends Brian May and Roger Taylor and is definitely not the case as far as I’m concerned. Listen to Another One Bites the Dust from that night.
True, Adam Lambert is no Freddie Mercury and he straight up says as much but the joint was still rocking. That’s “Q” for you. No quitting here!
