A to Z Challenge – 2020 – We Belong

I am surprised by some of the things I am realizing about our concert experiences by scrapbooking them for this A to Z.  For instance, we have seen Pat Benatar and her husband, Neil Giraldo, a total of six times!  “We Belong” is one of the songs she most always sings.

The first time we saw Pat and Neil (I think after seeing them so often we can be on a first name basis, don’t you?) was in 2010.  They were the headliner at The Mountain Winery and REO Speedwagon was the opening act.

I’m using paper from The Artful Watercolor collection.  It has a page of die cuts and tags to go with it.  It also has some 3-D embellishments but I’m not sure if I’ll use them or not.  Nice to have options.

This is the first page of that set.  I’m not done scrapping the pictures of REO Speedwagon yet because I wanted to concentrate on the Pat Benatar photos since they are the ones that go with the A to Z.  We did an unusual thing and had dinner at the Winery first.  It was not that impressive actually and we’ve never done it since. 
We had pretty good seats down in front for this show and they hadn’t even started the Loyalty Club at the Mountain Winery yet so we were lucky.  

Instead of mounting every photo I used the corner rounder for the corners of the pictures and then had some stickers that matched for the corners of the paper.  I also added some Dazzles stickers to the top part of this page after I took the picture. 

Neil Giraldo’s nickname is “Spyder.” I think the Dazzles stickers I put around it look like spider webs a little.   

I added some Dazzle stickers to enhance the page a bit.  I also put the corners on this page after I took the picture. 

They did a portion of the show acoustic.  They were engaging with the crowd and told some of the background of the songs.  

Pat dances around the stage and it really looks like they are having fun. 

“Hell is for Children” is one of my husband’s favorite songs.  They did sing most of their hits.  

The set list.  

Theoretically this is how it will look in the album.  As I said, I do have the pictures from REO Speedwagon to scrap so hopefully the pages will match up.  I am using the same collection for both groups so even if it gets moved around, it still should look okay.

Here is “Love is a Battlefield.”  You can tell it is not from the same show because Pat Benatar’s hair is short but it is still the Mountain Winery.

“W” is done!  Thanks for sticking with me!

  4. You definitely get to be on a first name basis after that many shows. I’ve seen Springsteen many times. It’s fun to see someone in concert again and again. You can really pick up on little nuances of their shows. Weekends In Maine

    That first concert sounds like such a wonderful experience. I love it when performers engage with the audience. I had never heard of Pat and Neil. It must indeed be wonderful to remember this fxperience all over again through your scrapbooking. I’m also a little sad A to Z is coming to an end.

      It does make the concert more personable when the performers are chatty, sometimes. We saw Van Halen with David Lee Roth and I could have done with more singing and less chatting from him!

    There’s another one with a voice… she’s excellent! I have her “True Love” album, where she goes a little more blues. Great pictures!
