Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #27

This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is from Julie:

Happy Tuesday, Twilighters! It was my turn to choose this week’s theme for the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge - it’s time to show some love to Jasper Hale! Oh, I think we can handle that.

The creative part of this challenge is to make a piece that says “Jasper” to you. And the comment portion for this week is all about Jasper’s amazing calming abilities. What do you like to do to create that Jasper-style calm for yourself? Tell us about it!
Oh HALE yes!! I love this challenge, maybe because I'm a big Jasper fan... there I said it. Don't get me wrong Edward is wonderful, but there's something about Jasper that I just find fascinating. I found his backstory in Eclipse to be very intriguing. Plus, I love Alice and the combination of Alice and Jasper is just too cute. Jasper is also a polite, southern gentleman.... which *swoon* does it for me. ;) The actor who plays Jasper in Twilight is Jackson Rathbone. Jackson/Jasper, I must say, is one very hot vampire with some seriously awesome hair -- though I know there's some debate about his hair in Twilight. I personally liked it!

I created a digital layout -- though I didn't intend to. As much as I love doing digital, I will admit that manipulating paper and embellishments is where my true love of crafting lies. I ran across a great quote from Jasper talking to Bella and included it. I thought it really spoke volumes about his character (re: special gifts) and that he's learning to be not such a monster. He's definitely MORE of a vampire than Edward -- if that makes sense, which I'm sure it does to you Twilighters.

Now to answer the comment portion... how do I relax?! Hmmm... if you know me, I'm constantly doing SOMETHING. I can't really sit still, I create too many projects for myself. Rarely do I sit infront of the tv and veg out -- well except for watching Dancing with the Stars or Grey's Anatomy... and of course, Twilight on DVD. Even then, I'm usually crocheting. But to truly "escape" I would say I read, which hadn't happened in a very long time until I picked up Twilight. Otherwise I would say I take a vacation to relax, but seriously, that doesn't happen too often either....
