Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge#35

Good Tuesday Morning :)
** Warning - Spoiler Alert!!!
If you have not read Breaking Dawn do not go any further ;)

This week's challenge was chosen by one of Twilight Tuesday's Guest Designers...
"Today’s challenge is taken from Breaking Dawn, we learn that Bella is pregnant and through all circumstances her and Edward’s baby, Renesmee.
She is amazingly talented, gorgeous and immediately becomes the focus of ALL the main characters in an individual way.
Renesmee is half vampire/half human, she has the gift of being able to transmit her thoughts through her touch. She grows fast and as we find out later in the book she will stop growing at 15 and is immortal. She shimmers in the sun, has her mother’s brown eyes, Charlie’s curly hair, likes blood over food, learns at an amazingly fast pace and easily wins over anyone that comes near her."
“The stranger-child in Rosalie’s arms had to be weeks, if not months, old…
Her shiny bronze-colored hair fell in ringlets past her shoulders.
Her chocolate brown eyes examined me with an interest that was not at all childlike:
it was adult, aware and intelligent”
~ Bella Swan, Breaking Dawn, pg 438

Creative Portion:
There are so many options for this challenge, you can focus on the relationship between Renesmee and Bella, Edward, Jacob, Charlie, Rosalie, Aro. You can think of her powers, or just her looks. Anything goes!!

Comment Portion: Renesnee has so much power over everyone right away, is there anything or anyone that has pulled you in so swiftly, a friend, a spouse? Do you know a sweet little girl like Nessie without the being half vampire of course . Tell us a little about it!
I have to admit, I was excited when Bella found out she was having Edward's baby... but then it got really freaky... and even more once Renesmee was born...
Renesmee frightens me, lol! She does - the quote that Jacquie chose says it all... "... her chocolate eyes examined me with an interest that was not at all childlike: it was adult, aware and intelligent."
Can you imagine waking up, expecting to see a baby and you find a 6 to 12 month old already knowing more about what has happened in the last 48 hours than yourself - by telling you? Creepy! Creepiness aside, lol! Renesmee is gorgeous! Irresistible! and I'll admit, I don't think that I would be able to deter away from her charm either!
The minute I saw the Miss Anya stamp, I thought of Renesmee - on a shopping spree with Aunty Alice!

I can't even BELIEVE how much like Renesmee that first card looks! It's right on the money! The second card with the books is perfect as well. Carlisle's study - that is great. Beautiful job, Margie!

Gorgeous cards!!! Love how she is shopping and reading!! You are right how could she not love those things!! I agree the technicality of renesmee is a little off putting but she won me over as long as I didnt read too much into the mechanics of her! ;) great cards!!

Erica said...

LOVE THEM!!! You did wonderfully! That first card is GORGEOUS! So pretty in pink. Very Renesmee and Aunt Alice. Renesmee can be a little creepy, but I love the dynamic she adds to the family. I can't wait to get home and play tonight!

Rebecca said...

Great cards :-) love 'em both and I adore your Twi shrine!

Risa said...

Both of your cards are stunners Margie!
I haven't read Breaking Dawn yet. I wish I had more time to read. *sigh*
Speaking of captivating, I felt this way about my son when he was a baby. He was such a beautiful baby.. (to me at least) I would hold him as long as possible and just gaze at his sleeping face.
Have a great day:)
p.s. I love the Edward doll and of course I have to find one now! *lol*

Beth said...

Alison said...

So cute! You nailed it!

Tammi said...

You always get me excited about Twilight every time I come here! Great cards, perfect for the challenge Margie! Yeah, would be a bit freaky to have a baby like that, but I was happy they had Renesmee...and I like how Jacob was involved. ;) Anything to get his mind off Bella! lol Oooohh nice postcard and shrine, love it! xx

Donna Maria said...
