TTSBC #2 Jasper Says Relax...

Hello again! Yes, I’ve been on a bit of a blog hiatus, what with the Holidays and the icky stomach virus that took up residence in my house. Somehow, I was very fortunate and was spared from getting sick, but Nix is still not quite right. Gene and Rhi seem to be just fine now. Thank you for all the well-wishes!!!

So, I am pleased to announce that today marks the second Twilight Tuesday Scrapbooking Challenge! I am so excited about giving you these challenges every other Monday (I’ll be rotating with Dani’s awesome Sketch Challenges!). So, without further ado, here’s what you’ll find on the TTIC Blog:

Welcome to the second Twilight Tuesday Scrapbooking Challenge! The Holidays are almost over, so maybe you can find some time to play along with us! This week's challenge is about one of the Cullen boys... Jasper has the special ability to control the emotions of the people in a room. He often made Bella relax in Twilight. Who in your life does that for you? Maybe you have a special place you go to to find peace. What is your "Jasper?" Make a scrapbook page representing that person or place! Or, you can make a layout about Jasper himself!

Here is what some of the Design Team has come up with:

And here is my project:

Ahhhhh…….. this is the place I would love to be right now…. in my warm bed with my husband’s arms wrapped around me. It’s so blissful. So peaceful. I love our room, our bed, just being in that room chills me out and then, add to that laying there entwined with Gene… pure Heaven.

I set my camera up in a tripod with the timer on to get this shot. Here’s what I journaled on the page:

“There is no better place to relax than right here. There are no arms that make me feel as secure as yours. I love laying in bed with you. You holding me, our bodies touching, your breath on my neck. There is nothing more relaxing than you.”

Gene is definitely my Jasper. He absolutely can influence my mood. Just a look can relax me, or even excite me! ;} And I often count on him to make me a bit calmer. And he does it so easily. Ok… enough of me typing. He’s downstairs right now and I think I’d like him to hold me for a while…

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
