Happy Anniversary to Twilight Tuesday! I have been actively participating in the Twilight Tuesday Challenges since challenge #24: Carlisle Cullen. That was before I even had a blog!!! Well, for this very special week, we are doing a huge blog hop, filled with wonderful cards, layouts, and surprises! Make sure you show some love to all of the participants! The hop will start and end at Twilight Tuesday. If you’re already on the hop, you should have come from Dani’s blog.
For the hop I decided to revisit one of my favorite challenges, #29, BFF’s Jacob and Bella. We were to make a project celebrating our best friend (or Jake and Bella’s relationship). I made a layout that I have wanted to make for quite some time now. I’ve had the pictures printed and everything… well, I finally got to make it!
It’s not a crazy layout like I sometimes make… I didn’t spend hours pondering what the heck I was gonna do with it… I wanted to focus on the photos… and it just kinda fell in to place. Dontcha just love when that happens???
Please click on the images to see them bigger.
So. We discovered this picture of the Twi-Boys and totally fell in love with it. We all thought that it was hysterical! Those fangs are so huge and ridiculous! It then came time to plan for our Twilight Release Party. My sister Pam (bottom right in the photo) decided it would be hilarious to buy us the same obnoxious fangs so that we could take a similar photo! This, obviously is the result. I dare say, we look even more hideous/ridiculous than the boys do!
So how does this tie in to the Best Friend Challenge? Well, I’ve got 2 sets of Best Friends here. My best friend Terry is in the top left of the photo…I’m sitting next to her (although I am ashamed to admit I could look that bad!!!). Then it’s Pam and her best friend Diana. I don’t really know if we would have taken this picture with anyone else. I think it could have only been a best friend shot. Who better to be silly with???
So even though it’s a layout that went together pretty quickly, and didn’t require a tone of work on my part; it’s one of the most important Twi-project I’ve done. It celebrates the friendships we have with each other, it embodies the silliness that we share, it’s just… well… us! This is who we are and what we do together. And if a dopey picture and a movie release can remind us of that (and how special we are to each other), than ain’t life grand? It really is the simple things… In this case… it’s plastic fangs!
Now go on over to my darling friend Donna’s blog. I’m sure she’s gonna “Wow!” ya with an amazing project.
