Bard without the boring bits

My scrappy friends exclaimed over the fact that I created a layout all about one ticket. This made me think (again) about how there’s no right way to scrapbook or do memory keeping – whatever works for you is the right way.

‘The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)’ was a mash-up of 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, done in an hour and a half show. I studied a few of the Shakespearian plays in high school (Macbeth, Othello, A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream) and know a few famous lines (thanks to Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo & Juliet), but I am by no means a Shakespeare aficionado. This obvious draw back (how many of the audience would you expect to know 37 Shakespearian plays?) was overcome by casting some brilliant comic actors (and some brilliant writers too, I expect) so we followed along quite well. It’s been five years since I saw the production and I still remember laughing uproariously and crossing my legs cause I didn’t want to miss a minute going to the bathroom.

There’s something I find very satisfying about using up scraps from previous layouts. Apart from the background paper, all the other pieces are scraps and the combination of the two alphabets allowed me to use numbers that are often left in my sticker sets (take out the numbers and give me more of the letter E i say!!).
