TTIC38 ~ Bella & Edward’s Honeymoon

speedfighter070900043 This week's challenge was issued by Dani, and we will focus on the honeymoon scene from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. If you have not read this book beware, there will be spoilers!

I’m nothing if not thorough.
Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, p.78


He didn’t ask what I was thinking, which was out of character for him.
I guessed that meant that he was just as nervous as I suddenly was.
Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, p.79


Breaking Dawn has so many wonderful scenes and one of my favorites is the honeymoon that Edward took Bella on after they were married. What a romantic time for them. Alone on a tropical island… sigh. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.

The Challenges:
Craft
– Make something that you feel represents Bella and Edward’s honeymoon.

Comment – Tell us about your honeymoon (no personal details please!). Did you go somewhere or see something special? Or did you just hide out from the world and enjoy being with your new spouse?
If you haven’t been on a honeymoon, that is ok! What is your dream honeymoon?

Well… Welcome Back, blog hoppers! I decided to try my admittedly non-technical hands at digital scrapbooking. Wow – these last few hours have made me appreciate your talents, Digiscrappers! And how. Yikes, yikes and … EGADS! I am almost embarrassed to put this up, but I figure I can look back in a few months and see how far I have (hopefully) come in my digiscrap projects! It’s a noble goal. Here goes…

*sigh* I TOLD you! You know – it has potential! Someone did an admirable job of PhotoShopping this picture together, and the background works. But darned if I could figure out how to embellish it! Sheesh! Now that I have WOWed you, here is lame attempt number two! Project1_Page000 Repeat same concerns from above! Hopefully, faithful readers, I will have my old fashioned paper and supplies back in a place where I can unpack and actually USE them!

Moving on, I had a wonderful honeymoon in Jamaica. In fact, last summer we returned to the same Sandals resort for our 10 year anniversary. It was lovely. I haven’t told my Hub yet, but I am pretty sure I will retire there… He can come if he wants to. :)
