And now for MY project.... BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY BLOG CANDY AT THE END!!!

Here's my Twilighty keepsake box!!!  I had an absolute BLAST making this box and will be using it to hold all my pictures from Forks and La Push as well as pics from the various premiere parties I've attended/hosted over the years.

This originally started out as a faux book box.  I painted the spine black using acrylic paint and covered the rest using paper from the DCWV Immortal Love Stack.


Inside is a Tim Holtz Mini Binder Clip that is holding various pockets and pages I created to hold all my Twilight memories.  The knob on the front I got from The Home Depot.

The title plate is one of Tim Holtz's Ornate Plates.  I used various ribbons to highlight the edge of the checkered paper and even used some of the bright red ribbon to create the ribbon rose to pair up with the Bazzil paper roses.  Glossy Accents is actually still drying in this pic sealing the title in it's place.

Finally, here's a pic of the side.  For the edges of the book I simply painted a couple of Tim Holtz Elements Grunge pieces covering them with black acrylic paint and securing them with black brads.  The legs on the box are just round wood knobs that I also painted black.

Ok gang, that's it for my Twilight:  Breaking Dawn Blog Hop project!!!  You're off to see Sugar's "fang-tastic" project!!!  Me, I'm sitting in the theater RIGHT NOW watching a 15 hour Twilight marathon!!!  I cannot wait to see Breaking Dawn pt.2!
