TTIC35 ~ Renesmee (Breaking Dawn Spoilers!)

Sorry I am late, Twilighters!  Technical difficulties – technically, I left my camera locked in my gym bag… at the gym.  Before you ask, I was taking pictures of my son and his mad tennis skillz… nothing creepy!  :)  sheesh.   Now, on with the show…

This week we have our challenge issued by one of our current Guest Design Teamers, Jacquie!    ***BUT, since we are headed into Breaking Dawn territory, just a fair warning to stop here if you have not read BD yet!***   Here’s what she offers:

img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=4000140Today's challenge is taken from Breaking Dawn, we learn that Bella is pregnant and she makes it through the birth and we meet her and Edward's baby, Renesmee. She is amazingly talented, gorgeous and immediately becomes the focus of ALL the main characters in an individual way.
Renesmee is half vampire/ half human, she has the gift of being able to transmit her thoughts through her touch. She grows fast and as we find out later in the book she will stop growing at 15 and she is immortal. We learn that Jacob has imprinted on her also. She shimmers in the sun, has her mothers brown eyes, Charlies curly hair, likes blood over food, she learns at an amazingly fast pace and easily wins over anyone that comes near her. I love how she is so charismatic, I love her character!

"She's like nothing else in the world," he told me... Bella Swan Breaking Dawn pg. 428
"The stranger-child in Rosalie's arms had to be weeks, if not months, old...Her shiny bronze-colored hair fell in ringlets past her shoulders. Her chocolate brown eyes examined me with an interest that was not at all childlike: it was adult, aware and intelligent"....Bella Swan Breaking Dawn pg. 438

Challenge Portion: There are so many options for this challenge, you can focus on the relationship between Renesmee and Bella, Edward, Jacob, Charlie,  Rosaliee, Aro. You can think of her powers, or just her looks. Anything goes!!
Comment Portion: She has so much power over everyone right away, is there anything or anyone that has pulled you in so swiftly, a friend, a spouse? Do you know a sweet little girl like Nessie without the being half vampire of course . Tell us a little about it!

Well, I gotta tell ya… I had trouble with Renesmee – the storyline, not the cute little girl Jacquie so eloquently described.  How can you not love THAT little girl!  However, I am going to go ahead and let you know that MY SON is just such a child.  Yep – especially when he was a baby… before he could even smile, you could see the joy in his face.  I used to say he “smiled with his eyes”, because he totally did!  People gravitated to him and he charmed them.  When he was just learning to talk, among his first words were the different makes and models of cars,  (Momma was NOT first, btw!)  He was basically our dancing bear – everyone wanted to hear him tell what cars were going by or being pointed out.  His great fun was walking up and down parking lots pointing to vehicle logos to learn what the cars were.  (He’s still a car fiend today, in fact!)  Keep in mind, he was less than 2 at the time!  SO, yes, I know such a child.  :)  TTIC35 renesmeeOn that note, this is what I created, and boy, did I go Old School with this one! I envision her newborn picture in the center, with maybe her birth info, or love notes from her new family in the flowers above.  Or even closeups of fingers and toes – the possibilities are endless.  But since she is NOT your average baby, I thought she should have  VIBRANT birth page fitting her personality.
