“That color blue looks lovely with your skin,” he said, watching me. I was surprised; I looked down, flushing, of course.”
So this week the challenge is simple… create anything you want focusing on the color blue.
Comment challenge… What’s your favorite color to wear and why? Are there any colors that you just hate wearing?
No more sadness, I kiss it good-bye

It is Tuesday yay!!! Woo Hoo! Another TwilightTuesday Inspiration challenge! This week the beautiful Ali has given us the challenge for TTIC39!
"Hello Everybody! It’s no secret that Breaking Dawn is my favorite book in the series. So, now that it’s my turn to create a challenge (which I am SO excited about!), of course I would pull something from that book!
***Spoiler Alert! If you haven’t read Breaking Dawn, then stop reading this post and pick up that book! Then, you can come back and read the post, and complete the challenge! ***
One of the things I love the most about Breaking Dawn are Jacob’s chapter titles. They’re hilarious!
My favorite is: “What do I look like? The Wizard of Oz? You Need a Brain? You Need a Heart? Go Ahead. Take Mine. Take Everything I Have.” Chapter 17, page 329
This chapter title perfectly depicts what Jacob is going through but in a sarcastic, tough, Jacob kinda way.
So, here’s the scoop. We’ve all been on the giving and receiving end of many things, and I’m not talking about presents. We have given our “all” (or someone has given us their “all” for us) just because we love them so much. Jacob loves Bella with everything he has and would give it all to her because of it. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for her; that’s definitely made clear in this chapter!
Comment portion: Who have you given your all to? Your kids? Your best friend? Who’s given their all to you? Your parents? A doctor? Tell us about that special relationship where someone has gone as far as they could with the gift of themselves.
Project portion: Show us who has given you their everything or who you’ve given your everything to. Make a layout showing it, or a card to give that person, or even a gift just to say “thanks” or “I love you with all that I have.”
I LOVE the chapters from Jacob's POV in Breaking Dawn!! So funny and a little sad at the same time. I know how he feels, I had times in my younger years where I knew how that felt. But now I have my husband and kids. My family has given me love, joy, fufillment...everything! I feel so full of love with them in my life, I couldn't imagine my life without them. The good times and bad it is all part of my life and I embrace every moment! I definitely give them my all back!
Here is my card. A little representation of them and the colorful paper reflects the colorful aura they put off around them! :)
I used Unity Little Me set, PERFECT for my perfect little family! I colored them in copics and I layered Sultry BasicGrey dp (THANKS JEN!!) The sentiment and swirls are from Bevy of Butterflies from Unity also. Ribbon is PTI.
Stamps Used: Little Me, Bevy of Butterflies-Unity Stamp Company
Papers Used: Bazzill, White-PTI, sultry-basicGrey
Ink Used: Versafine black onyx
Accessories Used: Copics, scarlett jewel-PTI
I hope to see everyone playing along this week at Twilight Tuesday!!

For the next challenge to use 5 embellishments I used the July KOM again and stamped the bird onto Wisteria dp, I cut it out and layered it onto summer sun PTI cs. I used the patch image and stamped it on more dp and distressed the edges. The sentiment is also from the KOM. My embellishments are 1 button, 1 bow and 3 brads. I am not sure I like this one....
