February’s Music Inspiration Challenge

I’m working on scrapbooking Happiness Box 2020 and from time to time I like to join music inspiration challenges on Scrapbook.com. This month’s theme was “song with pink, red, or white in the title” and layout must have a heart somewhere. The song I was given was John Mellencamp’s “Pink Houses.”

I thought one part of this song fit Jac well. I decided to use photos I took from last March. This performance was on 6 March 2020 and this was my last time seeing a live show. This was also my last time seeing Jac since he moved to Austin, TX in August. There were more musical opportunities for him in Austin, TX than Philadelphia, PA.

I didn’t put the date on this page, I might, but I have the note from that day and some other photos from that day on the back of the page.

I embossed the hearts onto white paper. I think the layout turned out wonderfully and someone on Writing.com thought it was innovative and heartwarming!

One thought on “February’s Music Inspiration Challenge”

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I certainly remember all the times you went to see Jac with No K in the Philadelphia area, and it is hard to believe it will soon be a year since you last saw his live show. I’m sorry Jac decided to leave your area seeking greater opportunities in music mecca Austin. I like the way you adapted the song lyrics of “Pink Houses” for your scrapbook layout. That Mellencamp music video was heavily requested by viewers and played frequently on the MTV style station where I worked at the time of its release.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
