TTIC # 41 - The Love Triangle...

Well hello! Is it already Tuesday?...Where did last week go? I tell you what, I just feel like this year is going by so fast.... And in blogger land, it has been such a great year so far! Did you see my good news?...If not, have a look down at my last post!
Anyway enough of my mindless chatter! On to the important stuff...

This week's Twilight Tuesday theme is by the wonderfully talented and gorgeous Eve.

"The Love Triangle"

Eve writes: It's complicated...We all know that. I mean really could you choose? Well for some of us it is easy {Edward for me!} However, for Bella it is a little more difficult. Jacob fills that void {or hole} while Edward is gone. And does a pretty good job at it. It is complicated and for sure - a love triangle at it's best. Is Jacob more of a brother type figure? Or do you see Bella falling into love with Jacob while Edward is gone? There are so many angles to this triangle....

Craft Challenge: Make a card {or other item} that represents the love triangle between Bella, Edward and Jacob.

Comment Challenge: What do you feel were some of the down falls of this love triangle? What do you feel were some of the high points?

Well this one's a doozy...Thanks Eve! I was actually reading Eclipse...again (well, I am waiting for my BDB books to get here!) and I came across this one part that I love...You know the one when Edward gets all protective...

"One more thing," Edward said slowly. 'I'll be fighting for her, too. You should know that. I'm not taking anything for granted, and I'll be fighting twice as hard as you will."
"Good," Jacob growled. "It's no fun beating someone who forfeits."
"She is mine." Edward's low voice was suddenly dark, not as composed as before. "I didn't say I would fight fair."
"Neither did I."
- Bella Swan, Eclipse, Chpt 15, pg 341.

Love that part!... Anyway, I decided to take a leaf out of the very talented and beautiful Alison's book and create a layout ( yes, Susy you can get up off the floor now!)... Ok, please keep in mind I have never created a layout of anything other than me or my family before so just keep that in mind.....

I went with the "traditional" Twilight colours and borrowed a saying I saw on a fan made New Moon poster... "When you can't stay with the one you love, will you stay with the one that loves you? I used some Graphic 45 DP and Jenni Bowlin as well. Chucked on some butterflies and used one of the little charms I got from Artful INKables...The bite me one..Cause I am an Edward girl!

Bit of a closer look...

Ok...I actually have a pretty strong view about this whole Love Triangle thing... But, you could be here all night listening to my views... Basically I think, although Edward left her and all and she developed feelings for Jacob when Edward was away, when he came back and she forgave him...Bella should of put the whole Jacob thing to rest... But, if she had of done that, we wouldn't have had much of a story line in Eclipse would we?

So if you want to play... Go on over to Twilight Tuesday and checkout the rules... Cause I'm too lazy to write them down this week...And while your there PLEASE have a look around...You won't be disappointed! Now for the totally fun bit... Checkout what the other wonderfully talented ladies on the Design Team have created...
