Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #34

I know what y'all are thinking! It's Tuesday, sooo where's the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge!?!?
Well, it's right here sillies! I went completely out of my Twilight-element with this one!
No Red, no black, only a bit of sparkle... :)
We have a summer theme challenge this week created by the lovely Jen of Deconstructing Jen...
"One of the enigmatic things about Twilight is that every book aside from Breaking Dawn revolves around the school year. Twilight ends with Prom and New Moon picks back up as school starts again, likewise with Eclipse. I always wonder what Edward and Bella did with their summer vacations, especially that summer between Twilight and New Moon and as summer is creeping upon us rather rapidly with the summer solstice is just under two weeks away on June 21st I thought it would be fun to celebrate summer this week!"

Creative Challenge:
Your creative challenge this week is to go all out and celebrate summer! You can create a Twilight themed summer piece focusing on Bella and Edward's summer adventures or you can celebrate your own summer plans or a fantastic summer that has passed.

Comment Challenge:
Do you have a favorite summer adventure of your own? It could be from your childhood or currently. Do you have any exciting things planned for THIS summer? Share with us!!!

Remember: Each comment you leave on a Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge this month, you will be entered into this month’s Blog Candy Give Away!!!
My comment... every year, while anxiously awaiting the true summer weather to begin... the boys and I start singing DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince song...
"Summer, Summer, Summer Time...
Time to sit back and unwind!!!"
It has become a new tradition! LOL! Now that the boys are a bit older, it's going to be so much more fun to do a bunch of summer activities! No vacays planned, but we'll be busy!
I decided to alter my last $1 journal from Michael's!
A journal for Bella and Edward to share and write down all their summer memories ;)

I also made a frame preserving some beautiful flowers that Edward picked for Bella from their Meadow :)
