Compelled By Twilight

First things first. Apologies for being so long with the giveaway results. I've been mown down by the lurgy this last week and blogging action has not been high on the agenda. A quick bit of random interger generating though - and we're good to go. So here it is:


So that gives us:

Comment #9 Kate - who doesn't have a blog link

Comment #11 Elizabeth

Comment #3 Daisie

If you email with your addresses (email address is in the side bar) I will get your morsbags sent out to you. Thank you for all the comments left on my 300th post - Here's to 300 more! Hurrah!

Right then, now that's out of the way, onto other things, including an explanation for the randomness of today's post title.

The Sunday before last I went on a little jaunt to the cinema picture house (that's what the cinema gets called in our house for some bizarre reason), with my good buddy and fellow Twihard Louise, to see this long awaited release:

You may recall I've mentioned before that I am totally in love with the Twilight Saga (books and so far, the movies too). I've been trying to work out for a while now what it is about these books I find so completely compelling (I've re-read the entire series again in the 4 days I've been off sick!). It wasn't until seeing New Moon that it hit me exactly what it was that draws me in so much about the story.

~~And here there was going to be a lot of waffle about what exactly that is, but you know what? I'm not sure I'm going to write about it just now. I can't seem to put it down into words properly. I think I might have to get back to you on that one. Raincheck?~~

About the movie though. Seriously, absolutely, completely AMAZING! I loved every minute of it. So much so that I'm going back to see it again with Kendo in the post Christmas/Pre New Year lull. Hurrah! I do have slight concerns over the fact that this movie has me lusting after a 17 year old! It's just wrong! But Taylor Lautner is just too buff for his own good. His six pack has me all a flutter! I think I might have to go for a lie down ;)

Thinking about something else. Thinking about something else. Thinking about something else.

Okay, better now.

So, my complete lacksidaisical attitude towards blogging of late has meant that the end of November has snuck up on the Cookie blog quite quickly (How can it be the 1st December tomorrow?? How??). Being that I've been totally organised this year (to the point of scaring myself with how much is already done) December around here will mean that this will be going on, for sure:

Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas 2009 Class starts tomorrow, and being that I actually managed to finish my LSNED class this year, I'm allowing myself to take part again (along with my lovely mate Louise who is taking part for the first time).

I've gone for a different sized album than I'm used to using for this year. 6x12. Not a size I scrap every often, but definitley the most frugal when it comes to cardstock! Rather than buying an album I've opted to make my own post bound album (do you remember the Tricia Morris fixation..... still comes in useful that does!). I've used mountboard for the base of the album and it's covered in watercolour paper which gives a great texture.


JYC Cover 2009_Close Up

The cover is quite plain really, but it does the job. I'm really pleased with how it came out. I can't wait for tomorrow so I can get started on the first prompt, but for tonight........37 page numbers to make! I'd better get cracking!

See you soon for JYC page updates (I hope!)
