Beatles - LOVE


I had never seen a Cirque de Soleil show so was so excited when our friends on Vegas suggested we all go and we bought the tickets the day before.  There are aboue 3 cirque shows going on but we all wanted to see the "Beatles - Love" show. Our seats were fantastic,  row 7 from stage , and first 5 rows were actually a bit below main stage level so we had to look up at flying acts but still great.   The good thing for me was I was on the inside seat of the row right at the railing where a lot of the performers walked in from so got to see them all right next to me.

When I was looking for sketches I thought the one for Week 3 at "Let's Get Sketchy" looked great because I use 3 pics plus I also thought it would also work well with a place to put my ticket stub.  I just think it all worked out fine plus I found this fun piece of paper in my collection that circus on it from the MME Find Your Winds and Fly collection.

I have also been waiting to enter the challenge at "Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges"   The latest challenge there is Anything Goes and to use Lace or Ribbon.   Instead of using a matting strip on the angle cut of the bottom piece of patterned paper I decided to use a piece of blue embroided lace trim and then across the bottom a 12" strip of ribbon with matching blue stars.   I wanted in incorporate another color than the pink because the costumes everyone wore in the show were so full of color.

I have the sketch below  and here are the links to the two challenges.
