Hi everyone!! It is Tuesday as my blog followers you have to know what that means by now, right!! ;) YEP! Its Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge day!!! This is my first sample as a Guest Designer!! Exciting times!!! Woo Hoo!!

The challenge this week comes from the Lovely Jen!! She is my fan fiction enabler and one of the new sisters I have aquired! Love ya!
"One of the enigmatic things about Twilight is that every book aside from Breaking Dawn revolves around the school year.
Twilight ends with Prom and New Moon picks back up as school starts again, likewise with Eclipse. I always wonder what Edward and Bella did with their summer vacations, especially that summer between Twilight and New Moon and as summer is creeping upon us rather rapidly with the summer solstice is just under two weeks away on June 21st I thought it would be fun to celebrate summer this week!

As a teacher and a mom summer is a HUGE deal to me. It's a wonderful albeit short break from all things work related and is a wonderful rejuvenator to get me ready for the next school year. And lets not forget my kiddos, I get to spend all summer with my kids. It's the best of both worlds, I get to be a working mom and a stay at home mom and I love it! We spend our summer hanging out at the pool, fishing at the lake, visiting the zoo, and just cramming as many fun activities in as we can."

Now on to the challenges!
Creative Challenge:Your creative challenge this week is to go all out and celebrate summer! You can create a Twilight themed summer piece or you can celebrate your own summer plans or a fantastic summer that has passed.
Those of you participating on the other side of the world from those of us in the US/Canada are just wrapping up your summer... your task is similar to above, celebrate something wonderful you did this summer or focus on Bella and Edward's possible summer adventures.

Comment Challenge:Do you have a favorite summer adventure of your own? I want to hear about it! It could be from your childhood or currently. Do you have any exciting things planned for THIS summer? I'd love to hear about those too!! Dont forget to leave your comment on the TT blog!

Remember: Each comment you leave on a TTIC challenge is an entry into this month's Blog Candy Give Away!!!

Here is my sample card!
I wanted to make a card with Summer colors, I love the browns paired with the bright colors, reminds me of Forks WA, the trees and the dark mountains, just the earthy colors all year around. The Cullens have to dig out the summer bright colors during the summer with Alice as fashionable as she is right? I can just see Edward wearing a kiwi kiss or pacific point colored button down shirt! Bella, Rose and Alice in bright pinks and light orange colors! It is my birthday on the 19th of this month and it is great having a summer birthday! So I used a tree stamp because I want to sit in the meadow with Edward for my birthday, anyone know how I can do that?? ;) I couldnt help using my favorite ribbon technique! (I will post a tutorial on Thursday for this technique!)if you are reading this, thanks muffie!
