Hi all!! Twilight Tuesday is here once again!! Number 22! rebecca gave us the challenge today and it is all about Bella's birthday party, you know the one where Jasper almost ate her? :) Good fun! I love Stephenie meyer's descriptive explanation of Alice's decorations! I love pink!!
"We were pulling up to the house now. Bright light shined from every window on the first two floors. A long line of glowing Japanese lanterns hung from the porch eaves, reflecting a soft radiance on the huge cedars that surrounded the house. Big bowls of flowers - pink roses - lined the wide stairs up to the front doors.
They were all waiting in the huge white living room; when I walked through the door, they greeted me with a loud chorus of "Happy Birthday, Bella!" while I blushed and looked down. Alice, I assumed, had covered every flat surface with pink candles and dozens of crystal bowls filled with hundreds of roses. There was a table with a white cloth draped over it next to Edward's grand piano, holding a pink birthday cake, more roses, a stack of glass plates and a small pile of silver-wrapped presents.
It was a hundred times worse than I'd imagined." New Moon Stephenie Meyer
Here is the challenge straight from Rebecca, "New Moon opens with Bella's 18th birthday and Alice is in full party mode. Most people dread turning 30 or 40, but Bella dreaded turning 18 - mostly since that meant she was "older" than Edward. For the Cullens, they were excited - the last birthday they had ever "celebrated" was Emmett's many decades earlier.
This week's challenge is to create a birthday themed item - you're welcome to draw inspiration from the party or just go with "birthday"."
Go to Twilight Tuesday and check out the amazing inspiration!! Thanks rebecca for an awesome challenge!!
My card is pink and silver (thanks for the dp Margie!) and I used rhinestones for the crystal flower holders and my sentiment says "Endings&beginnings cherish every moment". For bella to me it seemed very much the ending of her mortal life, she was already in the plans to make her life immortal and join edward forever, and the beginning of a new wonderful life. Her birthday ended in disaster that night and in turn caused Edward to leave (New moon was a hard book to get through the first time) but this horrible time helped Edward to fight his urges to eat Bella!
