Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #43

Good Twilight Tuesday to you :)
Y'all are gonna love the challenge that Beth (Stamp Insanity) has for us this week!!!
This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #43 is...

A Love Song for Edward & Bella

Beth: "I love music! I relate just about everything I hear in songs to something. I just breathe it in – I FEEL it! So my challenge is going to draw on that. I challenge you to think about the Saga as a whole, and then to decide in retrospect, what Edward and Bella’s song should be. It can be a song about a particular part of their relationship, or their journey as a whole. Be prepared to explain!! This IS a variation of a prior challenge, so I ask that you try and go in a different direction if you participated previously! This will take some thought before project ideas even come into play..."

Craft Portion: Choose a song. Explain why it should be theirs. Share lyrics that are particularly poignant, if you can. Create a project scrapbook layout around this song.

Comment Portion: Choose a song. Explain why it should be theirs. Share lyrics that are particularly poignant, if you can.
Dear hubs told me I should put a warning label on this one since I'm going to get all deep and mushy with y'all ;)

The Song that I chose...

"Number One Crush" by Garbage from the Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack

Ok, I know, I know - not your typical Love Song, but Love isn't stereotypical... there is no one interpretation for it! Not one thing, feeling, image, sound, etc...

Don't worry, I'm going to explain... The feelings behind this song is strong, possessive - this person is obsessed with their loved one, willing to do anything for them... to the point that there isn't enough or many ways to show their love to them... sounds a bit scary, but true love can, will and has done that to people... you just can't get enough of that love, you hunger for it... you will do anything for it... your heart feels like it's going to burst out of your chest! You just want to hold on tight and never let go...

"I will die for you...

I will cry for you...

I will pray for you...

I will sell my soul for something pure and true,

someone like you..."

I feel that Edward's and Bella's love for each other is like this... no matter what, it's sooo strong, there just isn't enough ways to show that love to each other. 12x12 Layout Details: Paper(s): DCWV Once Upon a Time Print - Forest Glade; Clear Acetate Sheet on Provo Craft Textured Ruby.

LOL! Don't worry - I know that love isn't suppose to be or feel like this 24/7...

but it should ;)

Enjoy your Tuesday!!!
