Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge 50

Happy Twilight Tuesday!!!
Grab your fave drink and snack - I've got a looong post to share with you, including 6 layouts :)
(4 - 12x12s and 2 - 6x6s)

This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is all about Charlie...

One of the best things about Charlie is that he doesn’t hover.”

"This has to be one of the most memorable lines from both Twilight the novel and Twilight the movie… Let’s face it, we all love Charlie….. And Stephanie describes this quite and thoughtful man’s personality and temperament in this one single sentence. As we all know, Charlie’s relationship with Bella changes from starting out as strangers thrown together in an awkward situation and then slowly grows into a bond that any father and daughter would be envious of."

Craft Portion:
Create a project that represents Charlie’s and Bella’s relationship or a relationship you have with a ‘father’ figure in your life.

Comment Portion:
Tell us about your relationship with a ‘father’ figure and why this bond is so special to you.

~ I've created a few layouts dedicated to the boys and men in my life!
Boys: 100% always fun!!! and aways looking for trouble!!! ;)
... and aren't those brads awesome!!!
Here are the "Big Boys" of the family :) On the right is my Dad, middle is my brother-in-law, Sean, and on the left is my ol' hubs. Each one is sooo different in sooo many ways, BUT! so much alike too! Clowns! They're all clowns! LOL!
My Dad, the boys Papa, is the sweetest man you will ever meet! He's a bit shy at first, but once you get to know him, he is the biggest joker in the world - and at the same time, the most emotional and caring man; He definitely wears his heart on his sleeve - there is no way for him to hide his emotions from us. He's taught us to be strong and independent and to always trust in him, us, family and faith.Papa has is always around for Nicky and Matt! Still willing to give them piggy-back rides ;)
He has a special connection to both of them in different ways... with Nicky there is this special and calming effect that they give to each other, they definitely know what each other needs without saying, whether it be a hug or another lollipop ;) It's like they can read each others minds. The above 2 snowy layouts are Nicky and Papa making their first Snowman together for Matt and me! Matt and I were sick and couldn't go out to play in the first fall of snow, so they went out for us and had a ton of fun :)Matt and Papa's adoration for each other is one of a kind...They're Best Buds to the fullest! They're bond will last forever through eternity! Matt latches onto him and never let's go! It's play, play, play or snuggle, snuggle, snuggle :) Wherever Papa goes, he's sure to have a tail ;)Here's Sara's hubs, my Brother-in-law and the boys "Tio Sean" :)
They love his playfulness and knowledge of sports and cool movies and toys! Sara did good ;) hee, hee! He's been the perfect addition to our family and an awesome role model!
And here's Daddy!!! The truest goofball of them all! I don't know how he does it sometimes!
Especially when put in a situation like this!!! LOL! I have absolutely no idea how he is breathing! But it goes to show you that he is a loving, dedicated Dad and would do absolutely anything for his family! Anything! Even let Matt sleep peacefully on top of his head so he won't disturb him! LOL!
I'm so happy to have been able to share some of my family with you!
This was a lot of creativity for me this weekend! LOL! Especially since my mojo has disappeared on me!!! :)
