New Moon Challenge







This past week saw the opening night for the second movie in the Twilight Saga, "New Moon," so the designers here at Noel Mignon thought we would give you a little challenge based on the book- but with a twist!

The book "New Moon" by Stephanie Meyer is all about change and moving on. The author stated that the reason behind the title is because whenever there is a new moon, the night is very dark; just like this time in the protagonist's journey in the book. Sometimes when you are going through changes, it's hard to see the end result and if you are going to get your "happy ever after."

Using this thematic element from the book, do a layout based on a major change that happened in your life. It doesn't have to be when life was "dark" for you; not all change is bad or as dramatic as it was for Bella! ;)

Also include:

-the colors black, white, and red
-flowers (like the cover of New Moon)
-text/book paper (it doesn't have to be from the book- I wouldn't ask you to tear up a Twilight book! :lol: )
-a charm of some sort (to represent the charms that Edward & Jacob gave Bella)
-a little bit of bling or sparkle (hello- because the vam
pires are sparkly!)

This challenge runs from today through December 4th. So be sure to add you link up in the comments section so I can find you and add up your work. Here are some great examples from the DT and our Guest Designer:
