Twilight Tuesday Insiration Challenge # 39 - "Your Everything"



"Your Everything"

Hey everyone.... Before you read on I have to warn you there are major spoilers ahead. Alison suggests "If you haven't read Breaking Dawn, go and get the book...Then come back and then you can do the challenge!" Good advice honey.....

If you haven't guessed this week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is by the gorgeous and very talented Alison. She writes....

"One of the things I love most about Breaking Dawn are Jacob's chapter titles. They are hilarious!

My favourite 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." - Breaking Dawn, Chapter 17, pg 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 just talking about presents. We have have given our "all" (or someone has given us their all) 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 has given their all to you? Your parents? Your 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 have given everything to. Make a layout or a card to give to that person, or even a gift to say "thank you" or " I love you with all that I have".

I actually was a bit stumped for this challenge....There are so many important people in my life who I love because they love me and love me for who I am....There's Wendy, my sister Cindy, Susy, my dad, Sharon, my boys, Jac, all my new friends at Twilight Tuesday, who in a short amount of time I have grown very close to ....The list goes on and on... Then it occured to me there is one person who has loved me for 20 years, who supports me through everything, who provides for our family, who fixes things when they are broken, who kills the spiders when they get into the house, who helps me when I get so frustrated with my computer, who will practically go along with whatever hair brained idea that I come up with, who puts up with my bad moods, who bares the brunt of my anger, who cleans the toilets because he knows I hate doing it, who will wash the floors and clean the windows, who make me feel beautiful even when I don't feel it, who looks after the boys when I have had enough, who gives me time for me, who (although he doesn't understand it) will support my Twilight obsession, who is proud of me and who just loves me for me......

Andrew....


Yes, this is my wonderful husband ...


And this is the card I am dedicating to him.....

I have used Graphic 45 DP again....I just love that vintage look! I used a SU stamp that I just bought...I fell in love with this tree...So I had to get the whole set! And the sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set that I have. I used the Fiskars Border Punch and just added a bit of colour with the red ribbon and red brads...


I actually embossed the tree and the saying although you can't really make it out!
