Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge#21

Happy Twilight Tuesday!!!
WoW! This is my 200th post :)

Bella’s mom - Renee Dwyer
A dedication to the Mommy’s in our lives…

First a little about Renee’s character…

“Renee was married to Charlie Swan right after high school, but left when Bella was just a baby and divorced him soon after. Renée is an eccentric person who will brave new things (like skydiving) and come to her senses after her experiences. Bella has always felt that she was more of the mother in their relationship, having to guide Renée from doing ridiculous things, and Renée thought of Bella as her middle-aged child. Edward describes Renée’s mind as being insightful and almost childlike.”

Comment Portion: What do you care most about the “Mommy(s)” in your life (Moms, Sisters, Daughters, etc.) and/or do you have a similar relationship to someone like Bella and her Mom’s relationship?

Craft Portion: Create a Twilight project dedicate to “The Mom” in your life!
Please leave all comments and links here, and if uploading to SCS - please use keyword TTIC21!

My Mami and my little sister are my Bestest friends in the whole wide world (so is my Dad, DH and boys... but that will be another time, lol!). My 'best friends' are always there for me no matter what, through thick and thin, no matter the time or place... I don't ever picture my life without them :) I could go on and embarrass them ;) but I think I'll keep it 'short & sweet' like my Mom - hee, hee! Look at her now, all red in the face :)
I don't think I know anymore like Renee's character - although I can relate to her a little bit... I am the responsible one, but I am "absent-minded" - I can never find my keys, cell phone, bills, etc. lol!, just like Renee who had to call Bella to ask where her dress was - at the cleaners! duh! ha ha...
All Mom's love pics! So I asked Esme to help me alter this wood frame from Michael's...
Frame Details:
Stamps: Inkadinkadoo stamp; My Mind's Eye Laundry Line Sundress "Bloom" Clear Stamps

Paper(s): My Mind's Eye Bohemia Blossom "Birthday" Paisley/Pink DP

... and Esme was so kind to give me extra materials to make a card to go along with the picture frame ;)

BTW, quick question for y'all!
I have gotten the impression that I may be posting too many pics of the same item in one post... what do you think??? Too much??? Too repetitive?

Oh wow, what a gorgeous photo frame. The colors are fabulous and just love the romantic look to the design. Your mom is and kids are beautiful. I love the story you wrote about your mom and sis.

I'm the same way. . I'm absent-minded. I lose every thing. . especially my glasses, cel-phone, and my keys. All the stuff I need to have with me on a daily basis! LOL!
