Twilight Tuesday #47…….




It is Julie turn to pick the theme this week!  This is what she has to say:

My theme for Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is the back story of the character of Alice, originally known as Mary Alice Brandon, prior to her meeting the Cullens.
We don't know all that much about Alice's history; it is described in vague terms in the books, so we might need to use our imaginations for the craft portion of this challenge.
The craft portion is to depict an aspect of Alice's history. You can take your inspiration from what we know from the actual Stephenie Meyer text, or you can use your imagination to depict something that could have happened in Alice's past.
The comment portion - talk a bit about Alice's gift. Would you like to possess her ability to see the future? Do you think that that would be a blessing or a curse?


Wow!  What a challenge.  I thought long and hard about this one!  I decided to use my Club Scrap Harberdashery kit for this one!  It is an amazing valet stamper’s project!  You open it up and there is an endless potential inside!  Pages, and little boxes that are perfect for holding trinkets, love notes, mini items and more!


I added some of my own ideas and embellishments of course!

IMG_8379 Antique buttons and ribbons……


I added some quote tags that I thought were perfect……. IMG_8374

Another fancy button as a knob to open the book……. IMG_8375 IMG_8376 IMG_8377 IMG_8378

Hope you enjoyed!

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
