TTIC # 43 - A Love Song for Edward and Bella...

Welcome to another Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge post....This week our beautiful Beth has come up with...Well...What I would call....Thought-provoking and a very enjoyable challenge. Now don't get me wrong...All of our challenges at Twilight Tuesday are very enjoyable, but with this one at lot of sitting around and research with the ipod was involved!
This week's challenge...

"A Love Song for Edward and Bella"

Beth writes..."I love music! I relate just about everything I hear in songs to something. I just breathe it in-I FEEL it! So my challenge is going to draw on that. I challenge you to think about the Saga as a whole, and then to decide in retrospect, what Edward and Bella's song should be. It can be a song about a particular part of their relationship, or their journey as a whole. Be prepared to explain!! This IS a variation of a prior challenge, so I ask that you try and go in a different direction if you participated previously! This will take some thought before project ideas even come into play..."

Challenge Portion: Choose a song. Explain why it should be theirs. Share lyrics that are particularly poignant, if you can. Create a project scrapbook layout around this song.

Comment Portion: Do you have a theme song? One that seems to have been written *just* for you? Do tell! You can go as fun or profound as you are comfortable with-it is all good!

So when I first read what we had to do for this challenge actually quite a few songs came to mind... Supermassive Black Hole by Muse..But let's face it, it may be a great song but not really a "Love Song". Then...And this is one of my most favourite songs on the Twilight Album..I thought of Spotlight by Mutemath...But that's my favourite walking song, so that wasn't going to work...Then I thought of Flightless Bird, American Mouth by Iron and Wire, cause I really love that one, but no that wasn't right either...Of course there is the obvious choice the love song that Rob sings Never Think...But again no...

So after a little playing around on my ipod I found one!!
Now, If you wouldn't mind, what I would like you to do is turn on your sound and then scroll down to my play list and click on the song
"Thinking of You" by Katy Perry.

This is the song I have chosen for Edward and Bella.... I chose this song because it always reminds me of when Edward has already left and Bella starts having feelings for Jacob. Now, we know Bella is all confused about her feelings and this particular song..To me anyway... Sort of describes the conflict that Bella feels about settling for "second best". I always imagine that Bella is singing this to Edward....

You're the best
And yes I do regret
How I could let myself
Let you go
Now the lesson's learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What would you do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh won't you walk through
And bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay...

And this is the layout I came up with...

So, I was sort of stumped as to how I was going to to achieve this layout...Cause you all know how much I love doing them...NOT! Anyway, I decided to keep it pretty simple and well this is it!

I punched the heart out and embossed it with clear embossing powder and stamped down the side with a flourish stamp. Photo Shopped the photo of Rob and KS making them colour, black and white, sepia and a bronze colour...Used my Scrapbook Factory Deluxe for the title and for the lyrics down the side (that Twilight font comes in handy) and ....There you go!

Paper: Basic Grey, Bazzill
Stamps: Penny Black-Deco Border
Ink: Tim Holtz-Walnut Distress Ink
Accessories: Scrapbook Factory Deluxe, Heart Punch
