Twilight Blog HOP
Be sure and leave a comment once you have completed the Twilight HOP!!
What Twilight means to me...Gulp..Gasp...Drool...sigh!!
It is such a powerful and emotional journey of love and emotions. It is such a great tool in reminding us all how valuable LOVE is!!!

I designed this fun Twi book with all the little extra touches I could think of. I had way to much fun dreaming this project up. I was so sad once it was completed!

Notice the BIG "E" medal..found that at Michaels in the $1 section and snatched it up for my book! I thought it was a great accent for Team Edward!!

I had a lot of fun destressing the edges of this project. There was paper flying thoughout my Studio. I printed the Twilight logo off the web. I designed and colored the "APPLE/Heart" with my photoshop software.
I then attached various tabs so I could turn to the page I wanted to see..I tend to flip to the last LOVE tab the most!!;)

The page above was the most difficult to design. I wanted to capture the joy of the start of New Moon with Bella and Edward together in the famous meadow. I used a black and white photo of a forest for the image behind them. The heartbreak page was so stressful..I wanted to capture the sadness and darkness that Bella goes through when Edward leaves her. I printed out the months that where captured in the movie and the book. Then I added the caption,

"It will be as if I'd never existed."
Gulp..that just breaks my HEART

The page above is my TRIBUTE to Jacob and the true vibe of New Moon. I used earth tones and browns just like the theme of this movie. I added the button accent with the locked heart attached as a symbol of the LOVE Jacob has for Bella....something that he has to keep locked up.I printed off the Wolf pack tattoo from the web also and roughed up the edges.

Squeeeee!! The page above is my FAVORITE scenes in the New Moon flick.

When Edward steps out to expose himself..yikes, that was just the most thrilling moment in this story. Loved it more in the book, but it was great in the movie also!! I added a clock accent just about to hit 12:00..thought that was a great find for this page. I made the paper behind Edward look like stone and cut it in the shape of a doorway.

MARRY ME..Bella was my fav. I printed the page in the book of Edward asking Bella to Marry him. It was not really done like the movie but he still said..Marry Me. You can see those two words right beside his cheek.:)

On the back I found this quote from Emily Bronte..thought that was a perfect saying for the story of Edward and Bella.

All images are Pixie Dust Studio Twilight images..that you can find in the Studio SHOP. Then I just used different red, black and natural DP to make the books stay in the traditional Twilight theme. The requirement was to use a touch of silver. I used some little silver accents on the corners of some of the pages and a silver ribbon around the ring on the book!

These are new Twilight images fresh in the STUDIO!!
Take a peek..

You gals totally rocked all the samples (and of course all the digis)!! I loved reading the Twilight books, not as in love with the movies, but did like them too. But I liked how I pictured Bella and the Cullens soooo much better. Love this newest line Kathy!!
