Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #37...A Little Romance

Ohhhh I hope you like this.....
This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is called

"A Little Romance"

And I'm hosting it!....Well... you know, I came up with the idea!

Warning.....If you haven't read Eclipse, there are spoilers ahead!

"If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day"
~ Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights

Yes, I admit it....I am a hopeless romantic! I am the one who sits in the back of the movie theatre and cry's her eye's out at the slightest inkling of a romantic, happy ending!....So it makes perfect sense (well, to me anyway) that one of the things I am constantly drawn to in the Twilight Saga is Edward's and Bella's unfailing, undeniable, intense and passionate love they have for each other. To many of us, it's what draws us back to reading the books over and over and over again!

My husband, (whom I love with all my heart) is NOT romantic in anyway, shape or form, and although I knew this when I married him I sometimes find myself craving for a little bit of romance...So apart from actually physically going out to find it, I turn to my bookshelf instead!

I love many of the romantic scenes in the 4 books...When Edward and Bella first start to get to know each other , the meadow, when they are reunited after being apart, even when Alice and Jasper meet at the airport after she gets back from Italy. But, the book I find myself regularly pulling out when I need a romantic hit is Eclipse. When Edward gives Bella his "hand me down" charm and then he finally gets her to agree to marry him...Along with a few other things!

I took a deep breath.

"Isabella Swan?" He looked up at me through his impossibly long lashes, his golden eyes soft but, somehow, still scorching. "I promise to love you forever - every single day of forever. Will you marry me?"

There were many things I wanted to say, some of them not nice at all, and others more disgustingly gooey and romantic than he probably dreamed I was capable of. Rather than embarrass myself with either, I whispered, "Yes."

"Thank you," he said simply. He took my left hand and kissed each of my fingertips before he kissed the ring that was now mine.

~ Bella Swan, Eclipse, pg. 460.

So here is my challenge to you...

Creative Portion:
Do you have a favourite Edward and Bella , Jacob and Bella or even an Alice and Jasper romantic moment? Create something that celebrates their love or how about creating something for that special person you love!

Comment Portion:
Tell us about your most romantic moment...Be it in the books or real life!

Here is my card....

On my shopping/birthday outing on Sunday, Wendy and I dropped into Camelot because ever since I became a Guest Designer for Twilight Tuesday I am running out of stuff....NOT that I am complaining because I am loving every minute of this... Anyway, I found some DP by Graphic 45 called "Vintage Cherries". Straight away I thought "Have to have that...It's just my kind of paper!" And then I found these beautiful butterfly stamps from"gel-a-tins"....Ohhh I'm going to have fun with those!

I embossed the butterfly twice and cut out one to give it a sort of 3D effect.... Don't you just love watching the powder when you melt it...Have never really gotten over that!

Then I used the Artful INKable stamp that I love...Because to me that just sums up Twilight in a quote....

And then I stamped the inside with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink...Which is my favourite!

Now ever since I came up with this challenge I have been trying to remember my most romantic moment....And, well....I can't remember one! Sorry honey! But I will say this, my husband may not be the most romantic guy out there....But, he vacuum's and washes the floor, cleans the windows, maintains the garden, gives me time to myself when I need it, indulges my Twilight obsession and most of all he cleans the boys toilet so I don't have to go in there!!
