TTIC #38 The Honeymoon

If you did not complete the Twilight Saga… then STOP READING!!! Tons of spoilers are in this post, and I don’t want to ruin it for you. But, why the heck haven’t you finished the series yet?!?!?

This week’s Challenge is brought to us by Dani, my buddy who loves NCIS just like I do! Anyway, here’s the scoop!

I’m nothing if not thorough.
Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, pg.78

The Challenges:

Craft – Make something that you feel represents Bella and Edward’s honeymoon.

Comment – Tell us about your honeymoon (no personal details please!). Did you go somewhere or see something special? Or did you just hide out from the world and enjoy being with your new spouse?
If you haven’t been on a honeymoon, that is ok! What is your dream honeymoon?

For my honeymoon, Gene and I went to St. Martin. It was so beautiful there. And the food…oh the food… I will never forget how my taste buds danced! We were there for 6 days, and we had such a fantastic time! We bought our first digital camera there, we ate, I bought some really cool clothes, we explored many of the beaches, we ate, explored the island in our rented jeep… and we ate.

One of my absolute favorite memories that I have with Gene is ate a restaurant (big surprise huh?) called Bliss. It was a fairly new place and it was right on the water. Like, watch where you’re going or you’ll fall 15 feet down into the ocean! Anyway, the food was to die for (I even tried crab cakes! No, I didn’t like ‘em but at least I tried it!), the music was fantastic (we actually spoke to the owner about it… when we got home we bought the CD! Putumaya’s World Groove…it’s amazing.), but the coolest, and kinda scary thing about it was the airplanes. Picture this… you’re sitting above the water, at the edge of the outdoor restaurant. All you see is black to one side of you. You know there’s water out there, because you can hear it… but you see NOTHING. All of a sudden you see 2 tiny lights. They get closer. Closer. You hear an airplane. Al of a sudden, as you take a swig of your sparkling water, an airplane flies right at you from the blackness that is the sea. I cannot describe it well enough. There’s blac, and then there’s a plane. Oh and by the way, it’s landing, so the thing is almost close enough for you to reach out and touch someone. It was as if the plane was going to land on top of us. Scary and awe-inspiring, and amazing. That night really was pure Bliss. That restaurant is aptly named.

For my craft portion… I made a card that the new Mr. and Mrs. Cullen might have sent to their family, had Bella not discovered that she was spawning (as I affectionately call it!).

I used Patina Glimmer Mist all over the card and then Copper Glimmer Mist on just the bottom to represent sand. I stamped a tone on tone feather a few times and added a dash of Crystal Stickles to the center. Then I stamped Greetings from Isle Esme with my Artful INKables stamps. I used my EK Success Watercolor markers for the stamps, and te little bit of detailing that I did. Here’s a close up shot.

And another.

I like the soft look of the card. It’s very tranquil, like I would imagine Isle Esme would be. And, I suppose I don’t need to remind you what the feathers are about!!!

As always, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this week’s challenge – please go and check them out!

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!
