It’s time for another Twilight Tuesday Challenge! This week, my Book Buddy Beth created it; and it’s a good one. Here’s what she wrote: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 – I better go start studying my iPod now…Challenge 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: Do you have a theme song? One that seems to have been written *just* for you? Do tell! You can go as fun or profound as you are comfortable with – it is all good! See? It’s a really cool challenge! It took a bit of thinking, but just as I was about to break out some CD’s that have lyrics in them, something popped into my head and I thought it was perfect. “I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)” by New Kids on the Block! Yes! I get to combine NKOTB AND Twilight in one project! How great is that?!?! Some excerpts from the song:“I’ll be loving you foreverjust as long as you want me to be”“We’ve come to far to ever turn back nowThis love will last foreverI can see it all now”The whole song I think works… and I don’t think I need to explain why. Pretty self explanatory right? Here’s a close up of the Tim Holtz Mask that I used. I love how it came out. First, I used alcohol ink in Espresso, then I used Making Memories acrylic paint on top also in Espresso. Go fig! And the photo I chose is from Edward and Bella’s 1st kiss. A pretty powerful moment… a pretty powerful song. Forever is a long time…but that’s what Bella and Edward have. Forever.And as always, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this week’s challenge – please go and check them out!Beth ~ Dani ~ Eve ~ Margie ~ Rebecca with Guest Designers: Donna ~ Jacquie ~ Erica (subbing for Margie!)(Julie, Jen and Tonya are off this week)

Bwahaha!!! I got a really good chuckle out of NKOTB. Oh wow. Alison you just rock!! You have such a great sense of humor. 😀 And your layout is fantastic!!! I love the old look of the paper and the whole thing!! Wow. 😀
I love that you used New Kids (from my area!) – it's perfect for capturing that "Bella & Edward at age 17" feeling. That mask is really cool, too — you did such a great job with this!
WOW, I used to love NKOTB. Such a great song and I love your layout.
