Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #10

I cannot believe the luck that I have been having - enough to be completely bald by now!!! My pc completely zonked on me this morning... and the boys are icky-sicky, not fun :( Ok, ok, no more whining onto better things...

MUCH more better things ;)

Here I (finally) am with Twilight Tuesday's Inspiration Challenge #10!!!... with a bit of good news!!!... I am soooo very excited to say that not only has Tonya decided to continue with the challenges, but that she has asked me to be a part of her Design Team!!! I am so very happy and honored to be included with this group of very talented ladies! (... Happy dance time!!!)

Being a new DT member - I am going to introduce myself... I am a very, very happy and proud SAHM to 2 cute little boys - Nicky (who will be 5 in just 2 weeks!) and Matt (2 1/2), married for a lil' over 5 yrs to Dino, my lil' family (including ma, pa, lil' sis, BIL, and RJ) is my pride and joy - my life. Thanx to my lil' sis - I have been scrapping since last April and cardmaking since August, when I started my blog :) I have come a very long way - even so, I still consider myself a beginner ;) I still have a long way to go and much more to learn from my fellow team members and scrappers!

Ok, enough about me! Here's the team:

Tonya Klar, Stamp Happens
Eve Fowler, This is Bliss
Beth Schultz, Stamp Insanity

Go Team!

Now onto this week's challenge: Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge (#10) Which Female Twilight Character Are You???

Here's the details to the challenge:
1. Take the Twilighter Anonymous' Which Female Twilight Character Are You quiz.
2. Let us know which one you are. If you feel extra friendly, give examples! We want to know who you are ;)
3. Craft something inspired by your results - your female character.
4. Link back here and leave us a comment with your link so we can visit you! (Use the keywords TTIC10, and Twilight if you upload to SCS.)
** If you are shy, like me (extremely)... please still join us and do 1 and 2... we'd still like to hear from y'all :)

Guess who I am?!?
I'm Bella!... "You are observant, diplomatic and often aim to please. You are unaware of your attractiveness and despite being uncomfortable with any form of attention, people enjoy your company. You can be impatient, stubborn and headstrong, but you are true to your word and mature for your age, often taking care of your family and enjoying a good book over chatting with girlfriends on the phone." <--- This is ALL so right! I really am a Bella ;)

I decided to make myself a "ME" layout... this is who I am and how I relate so much to the character, Bella...
Here's my layout... the eternal circles of my life!
The red circle represents Bella's and my love, passion and devotion to our families... the dark grey circle represents the everyday 'bad' things we struggle with.
The pink circle shows our hidden girly-side, silliness, our childlike ways, innocence... the beige circle represents our good qualities... I need to add honesty somewhere - sometimes that's a good quality, but some may say it can be bad too, lol, I guess it's all in the timing.
The blue circle represents how we feel about our significant other... oh Edward {sigh}... and the white circle shows a lil' bit of our hobbies... Bella did start that scrapbook that her mom sent her... I'm hoping that there is at least one difference between Bella and I... I hope that when she got her pics back from Edward that she finished the album!... unlike me who hasn't! LOL!

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to check out the other team members work!
