Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #2



Well, this may be my lamest IC submission ever! I had such high hopes: a mosaic of the Forks students, with the Stupid, Shiny Volvo and Bella's 'choice' represented universally throughout as the apple... It had such potential... Alas, here is what I have to share. Remember what Momma said - if you don't have anything nice to say... :)





I chose the Night of Navy and Summer Sun colors, well, because they are the real FHS colors! The rest is pretty basic. I used the Puzzle Piece Sizzix die and the scallop square Nestie. I feel like the universal feeling of high school is making the 'pieces fit', and Bella and Edwada re no exception. I used Wild Wasabi, because Bella was always saying Forks was "too green", and that occurred to her often when she was going to school in the rain! Of course, Edward's sinky and new Volvo was the obviously out-of-place vehicle in the school lot - prompting on of my favorie quotes: "Stupid, shiny Volvo owner." Funny!





WHAT ABOUT FORKS HS REMINDS YOU OF YOUR HS EXPERIENCE?



Everything! When I read the scenes from the school, I picture it happening in my high school - (the one they are tearing down this month!) :{ I imagine the parking lot between the wings, the cafeteria with it's big black dragon painted on the wall, the dreaded Bio lab. It was a fun walk back through HS. Specifically, I never dated any hot vampires, or had a van come flying at me, though. :)

Oh my gosh, you are like my BF! I love to make paper crafts and have become a bit obsessed with The Twilight Saga, I've read them 6 times each now. I can't get enough of them! I'm going to go through your blog and read more!
Hugs,
