Twilight Tuesday Sookie Vampire Challenge #1

Happy 15th of the month Friends!!! *{edited, forgot to add my Comment!, lol}

I am sooo very happy and excited to be finally be able to with y'all all the newest Twilight Tuesday monthly challenge!!!
Thanks to Beth of Stamp Insanity and Tonya of Stamp Happens! I would like to introduce you to...

Twilight Tuesday Sookie Vampire Challenges!!!

(Based on the books written by Charlaine Harris)

-Every 15th of the month, a new Sookie Challenge will be posted.

Our very first challenge for April is based on the first book,

"Dead Until Dark"!

Craft Portion: Create a piece that reflects book 1, "Dead Until Dark" story.
Comment Portion: What part of the book inspired your creation and/or what part of the book really stood out to you the most!

You can also join us in the Twilight Tuesday forum to discuss the Sookie Stackhouse Series!!!

I decided to create a 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 layout based on Sookie's lil house, the woods surrounding it, her love for Bill and her boss, Sam's, "condition"...
The whole book was amazing! I really love how the author really brought the vamps into everyday life situations! I was expecting the same ol' Vampire meets beautiful girl, loves her, tortures her, bla, bla, bla kind of story, lol!
Ms. Charlaine, made the vamps come out of hiding and start living in the real world. It is very well written - so much so, you may wonder if there really are vampires and other supernatural beings hidden among us ;)
Layout Details:
Paper(s): Stampin Up 'Urban Garden' DP; Bazzill.
Stamp(s): Unity January KOTM 'Love, Etc.'; Unity 'So & So Loves' stamp; Inkadinkadoo Paw Print stamp; studioG Alphabet stamps.
Ink(s): Palette Noir Black; Copic Markers; Spica Glitter Markers.
Accessories: The Robin's Nest primary Dew Drops; misc. string.
Now, it's time to go over and check out what these great gals created...

Thanks for looking!
I look forward to seeing all of your Sookie creations ;)
