Yeah, yeah… I know… it’s a doozy of a title. I’m sure it’s giving some of you the willies just thinkin’ about what you looked like when you were with
spawn..I mean child (I totally called the kids Spawn while they were in utero!)! You should know by now.. I like to do projects that make people think… make people feel… push the envelope a bit! So, play along with me won’tcha??? Here’s what I wrote on the TTIC blog:
Hello! It’s Alison bringing you the next Twilight Tuesday Scrapbook Challenge! Ok, hear me out with this one. Think of this as a celebration of the New Year. As a purging of the soul. As a way to get out the nasty feelings we sometimes have about ourselves that will make us feel better. I betcha you’ll feel a lot better! Spoiler Alert!!! If you have not read the entire Twilight Saga then STOP!!! Go finish it already and then you can come back to read this post!
Bella looked like…well, she looked like hell in Breaking Dawn when she was pregnant. I think all women at some point (if not all) during their pregnancy that they just don’t look their best. That glow? Yeah, that’s just sweat! You know what I’m talkin’ about! This week, I want you to make a layout (with or without photos) about how you looked. Journal about how you think you looked.
No kids? Make a scrapbook page (again, with or without photos) about a time when you think you didn’t look your best.
Here’s what I made:
See??? If I didn’t tell you it was me, you’d never even know. C’mon… you can do this challenge!!! Click on the pics to see ‘em bigger!
Here’s what I wrote in the journal box:
While I was pregnant with Rhi, my poor body was so swollen! My ankles were as big a s thighs, my fingers as fat as hot dogs… I hated that my feet were so big that my socks didn’t fit. Missed wearing my rings on my fingers. Big & bloated- that’s what I was. It wasn’t pretty, but it was so worth it!
How nasty is my non-ankle??? Gross! I still can’t believe how huge I was! I had to wear Gene’s socks for cryin’ out loud! So there you have it. Me at the tail end of my pregnancy, sad and like a beached whale. But I am so glad that I took these photos, because I never would have remembered just how big I had become! So… what’s your story? Remember, you do NOT have to put in photos if you don’t want to (even though it would be so much more fun if you did!). Share with me, and the rest of the TTIC team! Can’t wait to see what you come up with !!!
