Fashionably Geek Challenge at Candy Shoppe Designs

The Fashionably Geek Challenge is posted on Candy Shoppe Designs!

Here is the layout I did.
We had to use a black background, white title, plaid and an apple. My apple is on the cover of the Twilight book. I had to do a layout about these books. I started reading the Twilight book this Summer and was completely hooked! I actually read it to prove that you don't get hooked...well, that didn't happen. I had the next 2 books on reserve a the library but went and bought them because I couldnt' wait that long until it was my turn. LOL. Would you believe I am reading Breaking Dawn right now and have not finished it!? I have had it for about 2 months, too. I think I don't want my Twilight series to end. Anywho, here is my layout and some close ups. I wanted to use a lot of luxurious items on my layout to replicate the lifestyle of the vampires in the book...pearls, bling and velvet.

Fashionably Geek Challenge
Due Date: Midnight (est) Monday, October 10, 2009
Oh! You didn't know that "Geek" was the new "Black?" Well, now you know! Let's rock this Challenge in the name of all geeks!
Rules are simple.....

-The base of your Paper Creation should be BLACK. It doesn't have to be all black or even plain black, but black. With that said, you don't have to create a layout. It can be any kind of Paper Creation (a layout, a card, a mini album, an altered item, etc.).
-The title/journaling on your Paper Creation (should you choose to add one) should be WHITE.
-You must include a PLAID, CHECKERED or ARGYLE PRINT and
-You must include an APPLE. It doesn't matter how many.
Already created a Paper Creation that fits into these rules? Awesome! Go ahead and enter it into the Challenge! They don't need to be new.

We are doing away with the POINT SYSTEM and instead strictly going by the voting from the Lollipop Girls from now on. So, do your best job and Good Luck! The Winner will be announced on 14 October.

I understand the Twilight thing. After I read Breaking Dawn I just started over with Twilight and read them all again.
