Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge 48

Happy Twilight Tuesday, Twilighters!!!

This week's challenge is all about the Bond Between Brothers...

"As the New Moon movie release approaches we are seeing amazing pictures of the Wolfpack who become Jacob's Brothers. In New Moon the wolf pack play an important part in Jacob's life and the effect they have on the Quilute community. This also affects the Cullen family, they have a treaty with the Cullens and in time see that they all need to work together to rid Forks of the bad Vamps. This week we will be focusing on the Bond between brothers and how we apply that to our human lives. Women can lean on each other and we are strong all on our own but now and again we need that males presence as a brother, husband, best friend as a grounding force...as a safe place to be. We see that in Bella's need for Jacob."

Craft Portion: Make something that reflects brotherhood... Be inspired by the wolf pack, Edward and Jasper/Emmitt, even the relationship between Bella and Jacob. Make a scrapbook page, a card for your brother or maybe a book for that special guy in your life. Celebrate brothers in any way you would like.

Comment Portion: Talk about the brotherhood in your life... Do you have an amazing brother that has been there for you thick and thin? Do you have the best guy friends that have your back when times get rough?

I have a few projects that I created for this challenge! 2 cards, a layout and a mini-album - but the mini-album will have to wait until tomorrow ;) I didn't get it finished and I know it is going to take me forever to take pics, etc! LOL! I believe that the bond between two brothers is unbreakable - no matter what the circumstances are - you can never tear them apart!

I chose the relationship between Jasper and Edward... they understand and respect each other the most, even after the "birthday incident" - Edward is forgiving and understands Jasper's weaknesses...Edward and Jaspers' relationship reminds me of my two lil guys :)

My boys are united beyond blood and brotherhood! They have twin-like characteristics... Nicky can practically read Matt's mind and always knows what Matt is going to say and do next - "Watch out Mom, Matt is going to run!" and sure enough, there goes Matt running down the sidewalk laughing at me! Nicky always knows what Matt needs before Matt even knows, LOL!Same goes for Matt! He feels everything Nicky is feeling - even when they're not with each other... Last Friday, while Nicky was at school, Matt came up to me and said, "Mommy, I think Nicky is sickie - let's go check his head..." - meaning his temperature... I told him that Nicky is on his way home now on the bus and that he should be okay since the school didn't call me with any complaints... as soon as we saw Nicky, I knew he wasn't feeling very well - and the fever didn't pop up 'til Saturday! They have each other's back! Always looking out for one another! If someone gives them a lollipop, they make sure to grab one for the other - and if the can't, well then they don't take one! ... well, sometimes Matt still does, but he won't eat it in front of his brother, unless his brother has some sort of special treat too ;) ... and this lil Halloween image is sooo my Nicky and Matt! They still haven't decided what they want to dress-up for this Halloween - they usually pair up with something cute... like... one year they were Batman & Robin, another year they were Transformers, Optimus Prime and Bumblebee... sooo, I'm looking forward to seeing what their theme will be this year ;)
