Happy Anniversary Twilight Tuesday!!

I have multiple blog posts today. Please scroll down to previous posts to see the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge and the Paper Pretties Preview list.



Welcome to the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge Anniversary Blog Hop! If you arrived her from Eve Fowler's blog you are on the right track. If you are just joining in, be sure to start back at the beginning (The TTIC blog). You won't want to miss anything!

Happy 1 Year Anniversary to the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration challenge! For those of you unfamiliar with TTIC, it is a super fun weekly challenge inspired by the Twilight series of books. Those of you who know me well, you know that I am completely in love with these books. Funny thing is, a year ago I knew nothing about Twilight what so ever! I hadn't read the books and knew nothing of Edward Cullen...can you imagine how sad my life must have been, LMBO! Then by chance one day I read about the TTIC on my friend Rebecca's blog. Honestly I didn't really think much of it, just looked at her lovely creation. Then as the days passed, I kept seeing more and more and more posts on her blog about someone named Bella...and then Edward...and more and more..and I was thinking "What is up with this lady?" Seriously, LOL! So after reading several of Rebecca's Twilight blog posts I decided that I had to check out this "Twilight" she kept talking about. I bought the book the day before Thanksgiving last year. We were going to be at my parents for Thanksgiving so I figured I'd get a little reading time in. I started the book after we finished Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday and by Sunday night I had read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Yep...4 books in 4 days! It is a good thing my husband was off of work for the holiday weekend (so he could tend to the kids) because my mind was forever lost in the world of Twilight. I have now read or listened to (I have all 4 audiobooks on my ipod) each book at least 6 times. I have walked through the grocery store listening to New Moon with tears pouring down my face and I have laughed out loud to myself on the city bus listening to Bella say "Why am I covered in feathers". I am forever grateful to Rebecca for turning me on to Twilight and changing my life!
I love the Twilight Tuesday challenges! Even though I don't find a lot of time to play along I do love to look at all of the fabulous creations made by the super talented dt! When I saw they were having a Anniversary blog hop I knew I had to ink up some of my Twilight stamps!
For my card I decided to use last week's TTIC51 "Edward" inspiration for my project.
I have to say that even though I love New Moon Jacob...I am forever Team Edward.
For my card I used the TGF Wild Sprout Edward stamp. Isn't he just perfect! My sentiment comes from the super fun Twilight themed Artful Inkables set "Fictionally Inspired".
I also wanted to give a big shout out to some generous sponsors of today's TTIC blog hop:


Phew....that was a long post....if you managed to stick with me this long....the next stop on the hop is Tamara Bennett.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!

The card is beautiful. I too just read to book to see what all the fuss was about with my friends and now I am a Twilight junkie! I used to listen to the audio books at work and had to skip certain parts so I would not ball in my office!

Thanks for sharing your story of how u came to love Twilight. I only learned about it after seeing the first movie. I was forever hooked after that. I read all 4 books afterwards. I'm now starting to read them for the 3rd time in a year. Amazing how I never get tired of them.

You card is amazing and I loved how you coloured him in...I have a very special soft spot for this stamp (cause I am an Edward girl through and through). Stunning work sweetie...Thankyou for joining us on our very speical day!! Xx

susy said...

This is such a cute card, the paper is gorgeous, did you stamp the flourishes on it, they are such a nice touch? I love the idea of having the audio books on my ipod, might have to investigate that idea, did you buy them from Itunes?
cheers

Ooh, what a beautiful card! It's just lovely and looks so very Twilight-like. Thank you so much for joining us on the blog hop today! :)

Stampvamp said...

Awww! You did a beautiful job on that Edward!!! I love your Twilight story!!! Mine is similar, but I started just a couple of months earlier. I read them over my birthday-week. Same kind of deal. My husband watched me sobbing on the bathroom floor on several occasions. I know he wondered what the heck I was doing! Beautiful, beautiful story. Love your grocery store recollection!! Thanks so much for supporting us!

Carol Hager said...

I love the Twilight saga--read it a year or so ago. One of the gals in SU saw the move so many times we lost count--somewhere between 50 - 80 times. Wonder How many times she will see New Moon. You have a nice blog and you did Edward proud! Thank you...

Holly said...
