This past January, my hubby treated me to one of the best birthday gifts evah! You may or may not know this but I am a HUGE fan of Rob Thomas and Matchbox Twenty. I may or may not travel cross-country to attend a concert and I may or may not look them up to see if they are in town while I'm on a business trip, which has worked out quite nicely a few times in the past. Well, after a brief, slightly risky encounter with Rob at a NYC airport a few years ago (yes, I walked up and started a conversation with him), I got to meet the entire band this year. I was excited and nervous and just so freakin’ OVERJOYED, which also happens to be the name of one of their songs from the new NORTH album.
OMG, how rad is that photo?!?!?
The Basic Grey Hipster collection was a perfect line for this rockin’ layout. To create the layout, I wrote out some of the lyrics to the song, Overjoyed. That word summed up my feelings about meeting them and attending the intimate little concert at The Majestic in San Antonio. I adhered the striped paper at an angle for added interest.
I laid the garland at the top of the layout and a #found20 in the corner. Lastly, I layered paper and embellishments under the photo. I was going for a cleaner edgy layout. I mean I was hanging with rock stars for goodness sake. It’s definitely a moment I’ll never forget.
If you've been living under a rock and haven't heard of them, check out the links to their websites, which I posted above. If you ever have a chance to see them live, they are AMAZING in concert! The storytelling is so fun, Rob's voice is amazballs and the music is incredible! Here's a few music videos of just a few of my favorite songs:
And so many more like Shame, Unwell, 3 A.M. oh so many
Fave cover songs:
