Twilight Tuesday's Farewell Blog Hop...

It is a bittersweet Tuesday morning :)

Today is...
Twilight Tuesday's Farewell Blog Hop

First a lil info about the hop...
The blog hop starts today at 8am CST and ends Thursday, 2/18th at midnight CST. Please visit every design team members blog and you will find some yummies along the way :)

Here is the challenge from our sweet Rebecca...
"Love of books, the printed words on a page, is what brought us all together."

Create a project that uses printed text: a page from a magazine, book, dictionary, etc. within your project, as the background or focal point.


Comment portion: "I love to read the newspaper online but nothing beats a printed newspaper on Sunday mornings. And no matter how hard I try, I can't abandon books (hardcover, softcover, or paperback) to a digital reader. Are you totally digital or do you prefer a good old fashioned printed page in your hands?"

And here is my first card... a Thank You card :)

Also created using the following challenges:
- Allsorts Challenge Week 39 - 3, 2, 1 Recipe (3 Roses, 2 DP, 1 Ribbon)
- Cupcake Craft Challenge 78 - Keep It Simple

It was interesting to find that this was the only dp that I had that had any type of 'print' on it and that it only consisted of letter E words from the dictionary...
After staring at it for a while, I came to see these group of words...
Here's a closer look -
They are: Event, Ever, Everyday, Exactly, Exaggerate, Exceed, Excellent, Exception, Excitable, and Excited.
These are only some of the words that I would use to describe how I have felt about being a part of this wonderful experience and this amazing design team!
There is no exaggeration to how passionate we feel about our love of books!
We are one of a kind! and no other team can ever compare to the friendships that were bonded here!
And the talent that was created!!!
I look back to our first few challenges! and we have all grown so very much in so many ways!
I want to thank Tonya for believing in me and asking me to be a part of something that I will always cherish, love and remember forever!
Thanks to all the ultimate Twilight-y girls for sharing their love, talent and support with me!
And also, a huge thanks to all our supporters and followers!
Without y'all we wouldn't have made it nor lasted so long :)
AND let's not forget...
Thanks to My Edward!!!

For being sooo handsome and for sparkling for me when I needed him most ;)
Every girl needs a sparkling fictional character to love!

Created using these challenges too:
- Our Creative Corner Challenge - Something Old That's New! (DP)

{{sniff, sniff!!!}}
It's not the end!!!
It is the beginning of more adventures to come ;)


Here is some blog candy!!!
