Hoorah! It’s Tuesday again! This week’s Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is brought to us by Erica. Erica is a Guest Designer filling in for Margie. She is super creative and I really like this challenge! Here’s the scoop:
Breaking Dawn is my favorite book of the series, like many of you, so I was really trying to think about what I loved about the 4th book. Of course I love the romance, but that is throughout the whole series. One thing that I love about Breaking Dawn is how SM really looks into Jacob, especially his relationship with his new pack, especially Leah.
“It would be interesting, at the very least, and strange, too, to have Leah as a companion – as a friend. We were going to get under each other’s skin a lot, that was for sure. She wouldn’t be one to let me wallow, but I thought that was a good thing. I’d probably need someone to kick my butt now and then. But when it came right down to it, she was really the only friend who had any chance of understanding what I was going through now.” Breaking Dawn, Book 2 pg. 336
For the craft portion: Make a project using at least 2 items that you wouldn’t think normally go together. Whether it be two colors, or two different patterns or something elegant and rough, it is up to you. As far as the subject, have fun with it. Celebrate one of your unlikely friendships or an unlikely friendship in the Twilight Saga.
For the comment portion: Do you have an unlikely friendship? What makes you different but what unites you at the same time?
As I said, I am really happy with this challenge, especially because I got to finish a layout that I have been working on for –no joke- like a year! I have my crop bag packed and ready to go when I am vending somewhere, so I never really change anything out unless I finish a project. I have been stumped with this layout for some silly reason, but this challenge inspired me and I got it done! Here’s my layout:
So, you’re wondering… how is this combination unlikely? It’s just the regular Twi-colors! Well, yeah, that’s true… but… It’s Twi-colors on a BABY page! No pastels here! Actually, I rarely use pastels for my babies… that’s just how I roll! This is when Phoenix was like a week old. I cannot believe how tiny he is! Oh, I miss him being that small!!! Anyway, before I get all teary eyed, I made this layout by pulling the most obvious things off my sister Pam. Her skeleton hand gloves, her awesome skirt, the studs on her belt.
I hand drew the title, and added some Stickles around the spikes. And last, I added a Ghost Star (from Heidi Swapp) and stapled it to the right corner. I am not only really happy with the layout, but thrilled that it is done! I’ll be putting it in Nix’s book along with all of his other zany pages I’ve made for him!
Now it’s time for you to check out all of the other Designer’s projects!
