TTIC#33 New Moon quotes!

Hi! I am back as promised with my Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #33 card!
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from New Moon.

Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 4, p.93

Jacob was simply a perpetually happy person, and he carried that happiness with him like an aura, sharing it with whoever was near him. Like an earthbound sun, whenever someone was within his gravitational pull, Jacob warmed them. It was natural, a part of who he was. No wonder I was so eager to see him.Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 6, p.145

He was my best friend. I would always love him, and it would never, ever be enough.Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 9, p.219
this one has personal meaning to me....

The more you loved someone, the less sense anything made.Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 14, p.340

I’d never seen anything more beautiful—even as I ran, gasping and screaming, I could appreciate that. And the last seven months meant nothing. And his words in the forest meant nothing. And it did not matter if he did not want me. I would never want anything but him, no matter how long I lived. Bella Swan, New Moon, Chapter 20, p.451

This is my card...I used the last quote and those chapters in New Moon where she went to save Edward in Volterra as Inspiration. I used Unity's Grandfather clock stamp and used the spotlight technique and stamped onto a yellow cs and punched the face of the clock and punched it out and layered it onto the image. I wrote Palazzo dei Priori along the side.
Stamps Used: This is the time, Grandfather clock-Unity stamp co
Papers Used: my minds eye dp, whisper white, riding hood red, so saffron SU
Ink Used: basic gray SU
Accessories Used: circle punch SU

HHH and Heros....

Good Morning! Glad you could make it here.

With Memorial Day coming up Yesterday's Hip Hop for Unity they chose Heros as the theme, each DT member talked about their Heros...there was amazing stories from everyone.
For the customers who chose to post Hip hop hangover posts on friday mornings we also decided to post a Hero post and talk about OUR heros too.
I couldnt think of any one Hero there are so many people I admire, All the Men and Woman in the Military, Barack Obama, JFK, Martin Luther King, Angelina Joile, Maya Angelou, Mother Theresa...etc...
But the unsung heros who everyday make me in awe are All the Women out there... Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Friends, Wives, Grandmothers, Aunts....
I am humbled everyday by what different woman all over the world do to make their lives better and their childrens lives better and the lives of others better. Our ability to Love, to be kind, to care for each other, to be there when needed...
All woman out there YOU are my HERO...I appreciate what YOU do to make this world a better place and for being there for us all! THANK YOU!
Here are some quotes
"How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!" Maya Angelou
"If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded." Maya Angelou
"As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world." Virginia Woolf

TTIC#32 The Great Northwest!!!

This weeks Twilight Tuesday's Inspiration challenge comes from the beautiful EVE and it is to find inspiration from the "The Great Northwest"!!

"The challenge for this week’s Tuesday is “The Great Northwest.”
If you have ever lived there you know what I mean. Maybe if you have only visited there you know what I mean. Maybe if you only heard about the filming of the movie you know what I mean. It is beautiful there. There is a reason for it’s beauty….all the rain!
So from the space needle to the forests. From the rain to the trees. From the lush green beauty of it all to the Olympic Peninsula. There are so many reasons to LOVE the great Northwest.

Edward’s family chooses to live there. Bella feels she has to live there, and hated visiting as a child. Don’t forget the trips to Seattle, the coast, and into the forest. Have fun with this one!

Please join in and play along with us!

Comment portion: If you could visit anywhere in the Northwest - where would it be and why?"

Here are a few photos I chose as inspiration because I can think of the forests and the green as Bella drove into Forks WA in the book. What a beautiful place! I have always wanted to visit Seattle, truthfully it started because of Pearl Jam, Nirvana, the Seattle grunge scene, NOW I want to go to Forks, seattle, La Push because of Twilight!! I want to see the HUGE trees, the beaches, the Space Needle, I want to visit soooo bad!

Here is my card...
I took the warm greens, and browns to capture the forests of the Pacific Northwest, This dp from My Minds Eye was a perfect fit, even some orange and pink for a bit of the rustic colors reminicent of the fallen tree branches, little flowers growing, etc. I used this great stamp from Unity called Deep Woods, fitting huh? :)
I have been really liking the look of these stacked layers so that what I did. I stamped this image onto brown dp from BasicGrey in Chocolate chip in front, stamped off a bit higher and then versamark for the tips of the trees, this panel is layered onto light green dp, the main panel is green from Eva BasicGrey pack I stamped Old Olive in the front and a bit of chocolate chip ink, then stamped in kiwi kiss a higher up, then versamark for the top layer of trees. This panel is layered onto chocolate chip cs and whisper white cs to pop it out a bit. The sentiment is from Simly said Unity set.
Check out the DT members of!!!!! If you are stuck on twilight inspiration these ladies have AMAZING ideas and thoughts!! I love every single one of these ladies!!
**special hugs to Julie**
GO and play along!! and come chat it up with us at the TwilightTuesday forum!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
Till Later!!

TTSVC2 Fangtasia!!!!

Howdy!! Thanks to all the amazing comments this weekend for my post for the Unity KOM blog hop!! I loved all the magnificent creations made for this weekend!!

It has been a busy weekend and I look forward to this week for quiet time! :)

Craft Portion: Create a project that screams “Fangtasia,“!
Comment Portion: Would you go there? What would you expect to see there? Let your imagination run wild! This is Fangtasia we are talking about here!
I looked through book 1 Dead until Dark and picked key descriptions of Fangtasia.... red Jazzy neon sign, facade steel colored, red door, interior of the same red, grey colors, framed pictures of all the famous vampire actors on the walls, dim lighting, people wearing black.

Another thing was Bill called Sookie "a white candle in a coal mine" She was the one who stood out, and when Eric's obsession began with sookie, monumental time I would say!
I picked the colors of grey, red, black and some white, just a bit. It looks a bit like a sign to me, it says "Love is Toxic" Fitting I think!! The corner stamp is from the May KOTM from Unity stamps.
I would totally go there, I have been a closet goth since high school but with manners! Not like the fang bangers!! Call me crazy but i would be the one in there waiting for a vamp to approach me!! hehe! I would expect a lot of different people and vamps, I would love to see the ornate glasses they might use, maybe some absinthe served I am sure, in these times that is the drink of the wanna-be's!
Here is my card..
Stamps Used: Love is toxic, May KOTM-Unity stamp co
Paper Used: Riding hood red (isnt that the perfect blood red!), going gray SU, silver and red dp
Ink used: riding hood red, basic gray, basic black SU
Accessories Used: sponge

Also I got an amazing RAK in the mail today!!

LOOK at this card, SPEECHLESS I WAS!!!! Speaking of twilight tuesday the AMAZING Tonya sent me this gorgeous card and some stamped Gorjuss girls!!! How did she know is what I want to know, these girls are so high on my want list it isnt even funny!!!! I fell hard for these stamps! it is SO COOL she did that for me!! I love you GF!!!!! You ARE THE BEST!!! You made my MONTH!!! So what did I do when I got this...when the screaming stopped....I colored a couple right away, what fun!! So here they are! I just started learning how to use copics so these are in no way perfect but i think they turned out cute!
I used copics, black sharpie and copic colorless blender. oh these girls steal my heart!
Thanks for stopping by and GO play Along with the sookie challenges and Tomorrow is a new TWILIGHT TUESDAY challenges!! Cant wait!!!! and If you are obsessed with twilight and love the TwilightTuesday site like I DO then try out for a DT spot!!!! On the upper right side of my blog you will see a poster Click on that, will take you right to the details!!! I am trying out too and good luck to my fellow Twifriends!!!

TTIC#31!!! Graduation!!

Hello everyone!! It is spring now and the talk is centered around up coming graduation parties!! I dont have anyone I know graduating right now, my cousins are all older and my children arent that old yet!

The Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge this week is from Rebecca! Thanks rebecca!!! This is a great challenge!!!
"One of my most favorite scenes in the movie occurs when Edward is showing his home to Bella for the first time. As they go up the stairs, they pass a huge frame full of graduation caps.
Bella asks “Graduation caps?” and Edward replies “Private joke. We matriculate a lot“.
I loved that part of the movie too!! That cute smile he gives and turns his it!

Craft portion: Create a project suitable to give as a graduation gift!
Comment portion: Reminisce about your graduation … or an upcoming graduation for someone in your life.
I never graduated high school but i did go to my cousins graduation in 1999 and that was pretty neat!

I decided to keep my focus on Bella and Edwards Graduation! Obviously they had other things on their minds at the time but the party was a memorable time and the Yellow gowns...ewww! I would look horrible in that color too! :) I believe Beth is the one who said the Forks colors are Blue and Gold so I used those colors with black thrown in for fun for my projects! Thanks Beth for your wonderful research!!!!
Since Bella loves Edward's music and it is something they share that they like that is his gift to her for Graduation! and a card to go with it! So I decorated a CD case and made a coordinating card!
I made the pattern with the flourish stamp from Unity's Birdie Inspiration set, I used Pacific Point, Basic Black and More Mustard ink and stamped onto a panel of Whisper white cs that I "aged" with more mustard and river rock ink for a vintage gold look. The sentiment is "Life is a dream realize it" from the same set. I added my new fav ribbon technique and layered all onto shiny blue cs, black cs and then onto a WW card base.
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-unity Stamp co
Papers Used: Whisper white SU, blue cs, black cs
Ink Used: Pacific Point, basic black, more mustard, river rock SU
Accessories Used: Black striped ribbon, sponge, sticky strip
This matching CD insert is made the same way as the card above, The sentiment is "life is a song sing it" Fitting I think! :) Ribbon technique along the edge.
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-Unity stamp co
Papers Used: Whisper white
Ink Used: Pacific point, more mustard, basic black, river rock SU, versamark
Accessories Used: Black stitched ribbon, sticky strip
Here they are together.
If you havent played along yet START!!!! If you love Twilight this will ENJOY these challenges and the wonderful woman who make this possible EVERY week!!!! When I did my first challenge for I was AMAZED by the SWEET, KIND and CARING comments ALL of the AWESOME design Team left for me!!!!

TTSVC1 First Sookie challenge on TT!!

Twilight tuesday started A sookie Stackhouse challenge last month in April for all the lovers of Charlaine Harris' vampire series! I have read one and two of the series so far and I really like them! This challenge was originally posted in April and I am finally doing this one now! I had just heard about sookie but didnt read them yet!
The inspiration is the First book of the series Dead Until Dark.

I liked this book! the characters are interesting, I would have to say the first things that come to mind is Sookies blue eyes and blond hair, also her work outfit which is White T, black shorts, white socks and black nikes, she spends ALOT of time there so she is always wearing this outfit!

SO I used that as inspiration for the color scheme, black, white and a touch of pacific point blue. I also used the birdie inspiration set from unity because when Bill the vampire comes around he can hover and that is like flying like a bird!
here is my card, I used black patterned paper from Margie, then I layered good morning sunshine dp then black dp then the stamped panel on white. I added ribbon reminded me of blond hair. the bird is also from the same stamp set and covered in crystal effects.
Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration-Unity Stamp co
paper used: black pp, good morning sunshine dp SU, whisper white SU, ghostly greetings dp SU
Ink Used: basic Black SU, pacific point SU
Accessories Used: red sticky tape, bazzil ribbon
Check in again on May 15th for a new Sookie Stackhouse challenge on Twilight Tuesday!!!
Till Later!!

TTSC4, May sketch for!!

Hope everyone had the best Mothers day ever!!!

I always love the sketch challenges for, well let me say I LOVE ALL the challenges!!!!

Dani's sketch this week is amazing, SO many options to use this for, SB pages, digi pages, cards like mine, geez just about anything!!! Use your imagination!! You have 2 more weeks to enter a sketch challenge project in still!
Here is my take on the challenge

I used Unity stamps and scrap dp from BasicGrey and the outside stars I believe I got these from sf9erfan Michelle from a blog candy win a while back so THANKS michelle, fellow Twifriend!!!
The sentiment says "Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to LOVE and to WORK and to PLAY and to look up at the STARS"
This applies to Twilight to me, so much of Edwards energy is spent to keep Bella alive that he sometimes to me gets lost in that and doesnt let himself enjoy Bella being human either, and Bella is in such a hurry to be a vamp that she doesnt stop to enjoy things either!!! So i chose to use this on a card maybe it would be a plaque on their wall!!! the middle star is a unity stamp stamped onto more boxer dp from basicgrey and I added crystal effects to the top to shine.
I just love this line of paper, I love the rich reds that SCREAM twilight!!!

Stop over and check out the sketch challenge, tomorrow is TUESDAY!!! Yay a new TTIC challenge will be up for you to get your creative mind thinking!! PLay along so we can all see!! I have seen some new faces doing the challenges and that ROCKS!! Spread the word, the TT gals are the best and they leave the sweetest comments!! Stop by the TT FORUM too where we talk about everything, twilight, sookie, a lot of different book series, New Moon set info, chatter, we even have a discussion about Xmen wolverine!! Something for everyone!!

Stamps Used: Birdie Inspiration, tea time pattern BG stamp, star-Unity Stamp Co
Papers Used: Boxer dp BasicGrey, kraft, riding hood red SU
Ink Used: Basic Black SU
Accessories Used: crystal effects SU, stars

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

I could of added some gold bling but I decided to keep it real simple. I used alternating colors of pink and grey in SU patterned paper and Used Birdie inspiration Unity Stamp set!

TTIC #30, Ballet studio scene

Dani gave us the challenge this week on Twilight Tuesday to make something inspired by the Ballet studio scene in the twilight book and movie. Very much a challenge.... took me a while to get going, but it helped that the TT team gave a bunch of awesome samples!!

This is challenge #30! congrats ladies thats a lot of challenges and hard work!!

Craft Portion: Create a project that shows your favorite part(s) of the Ballet Studio Scene.

Comment Portion: How do you feel about this scene from Twilight. Was it not scary enough? Do you think Edward made the right decision to keep Bella from turning?

So I have to say MY favorite thing about this scene in the movie is the backgound song, let me sign... I love roberts vocals, his voice is mesmerizing and haunts me. so that combined with the flashbacks in the movie was an awesome addition to Twilight and this scene. If bella would of turned then there would of been SO much missed in the future, sure Bella would of been happy but Edward would be sulky and blame himself still and it would be hard to look past that without a way for Edward to "take away" this part of her life. and think of what we the readers would of missed in future books. I dont feel the scene was very scary and little things bug me between the book and script.

I had the song playing back to back for a long time getting the feelings before I made this card... could never love it any less!
SO my card is a tribute to that.

I also went through this chapter again and picked the colors that were mentioned in Twilight, the yellow of the sun as she ran to the studio- so saffron, the dark of the room-Basic Gray, the hot pink sign on the door-pretty in pink, the blue of the TV when the video was shut off- ballet blue and red for the blood that was spilled-riding hood red.

I used rhinestones to be the mirror broken in pieces along the side of my card. I wrote in pen let me sign on the pink panel and the sentiment below says I love you. There was a huge amount of love involved in that scene for Edward to do what he did....

The white panel is stamped with argyle heart in riding hood red and distressed with basic black ink and sponged with more red.

click on picture to go straight to the listing!

Here is my card, I was inspired by the colors. I dyed a piece of hemp twine with many ink colors and tied it in a bow around the dress form. The paper calls out with the blues, browns, yellows and greens! Pink was a dominant color in the yarn so that is my card base.
