A Twilight Weekend!

Hello my crafty blogland friends!  This past weekend I hosted a Twilight Movie Marathon Party with a few of my best buds! And boy did we have a great time!

This coming Sunday is my birthday but I am stuck working on Saturday and knew if I wanted to do anyting with my girlfriends for my birthday that it would have to be a week early, so I asked them to come over to my house to watch all 4 of the Twilight movies.  Everyone brought a potluck dish for our dinner and everyone also brought a snack for us to munch on during the movie marathon- oh my goodness there was sooooo much food, and boy was it goooood!

As all my friends know, I am a little bit (just a little) crazy about Twilight.  One weekend when my hubs and I were out and about I asked him to stop at every party store that we could find so that I could find Twilight decorations, and we were successful!  In the picture below you will see how my dinning room table was all decked out. I purchased a gift bag and tissue at a local $Store for my centerpiece, I found Twilight dinner plates with Bella, Edward & Jacob on them, also found Jacob & Edward side plates  as well as a Twilight (Cullen Family) tablecloth, man I was so excited when I saw it all in the store (skweeled like a little girl, as my hubs turned and went away from me so he would not be seen with the crazy lady).  I made Raspberry punch to have the red look of the vampires drink, and also made cherry Jello shooters for the event (yummm).  You will also notice that there is another item on the table that I have not mentioned, but dont worry I will get to that shortly - It was a gift I made for all my girlfriends who attended, and yes it was made using my copics of course!  You will have to read on to see what it is =)

Here is a close up of the awesome plates I found........ I am so Team Edward and I of course had an Edward plate ;)

Alright you don't have to wait any longer, below you will find my special gift to all my girlfriends.....
 I made each of my girlfriends a Twilight bookmark for them to use when re-reading the Twilight Saga.  On one side of the bookmark is Bella & Edward and on the other side is Jacob, so depending if they are Team Edward or Team Jacob then they have the option.  I got the Twilight digi images from Sassy Studio Designs (I am so in love with all their digi stamps!), and as soon as I received these images I knew exactly what to make with them for my friends (and myself as well).  I used Black cardstock as my base of the bookmark, then backed Edward & Bella with Red Cardstock and Jacob with Grey Carstock.  I punched the top and bottom edge with my EK Success boarder punch then used a hole punch at the top to make room for the 3 strands of ribbon (black, red and white with a siver boarder) to give the tassel look.

Here is a closeup of the coloured images....
