Jumpin' on the Twilight bandwagon!

Yep, took me long enough but I'm a Twilight fan! I watched the first two movies on DVD, went to the theater with my daughter to see Eclipse, and now I'm going back and reading all the books, beginning with Twilight...they're awesome!! I've been wanting to make one of these corner bookmarks ever since I saw Beate's tutorial so today I made time to make myself one....so fun!



My bookmark is inspired by the New Moon book cover...



I used my Flourishes Thank You set (isn't this tulip a GREAT image to go with that book cover?!...love it!) I got my Flourishes set from Stamper's Dream. It's currently sold out, but Michelle carries lots of other sets in her store including the newest release. My tulip is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and I added some Diamond Stickles on the dark parts of the flower (after all, Edward sparkles like diamonds in the sunlight, right?...hehe!).

Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

The bookmark is gorgeous - I'd hate to use it for fear of ruining it! That's so funny about the series - last year I couldn't put it down once I started. My teen daughter insisted I read it and I thought the idea was silly but boy did it suck me in! :) You'll love the books!

Took me a little time to catch onto the Twilight craze, too! I wouldn't say I am a "groupie" ... but my girls talked me into reading the books ... after I saw Twilight on DVD months after it was released. I have read all 4books now ... and enjoyed New Moon & Eclipse (which I think is my fav!) This bookmark is simply gorgeous! And perfectly themed! Hugs Andrea xx

Twilight fan here, too. Just before Eclipse came out I had a party at my house where we watched the first two movies (along with plenty of food and visiting in-between). Then we all got together and went to dinner and Eclipse. We were a group of ten. They would all LOVE your bookmark, as I do!
