His Hello Was the End of her Endings....

I've been meaning to create a bookmark for a few weeks now and FINALLY I did! I was just waiting for some inspiration to come my way! I got it....while flipping channels....I came across the Sex and the City Movie...which I LOVE! I smiled, I laughed, I sighed, and I cried....AGAIN! I love the colors in Carrie's wedding dress. Not so much the bird on her head...but the colors...and the dress was beautiful!

I used more of my FAVE Making Memories flowers! I used a crystal brad by Stampin' Up! as well. Using one of my super cute Stickles, I added dots here and there....throughout the quote...dotting the "I's" and tracing the commas and periods. Here's the quote by Carrie Bradshaw which is so sweet:
His hello was the end of her endings
Her laugh was her first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile....

This is only part of the quote. Here's the rest of the poem:

He said she was what was missing.
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was “I do”
- Sarah Jessica Parker, as Carrie Bradshaw, in Episode 19 of “Sex and the City,” "The Chicken Dance"

You can't really see it well in the photo above, but to get the effect with the dots, I first applied small dots of Crystal Effects (Clear Craft Lacquer). Then I poured on my embossing powder. Do not heat set, because the glue/lacquer is not designed for will bubble up underneath and ruin the round dots you just made. Another option would be to use glitter...but I didn't have any in this color!

So, now that I've made my first bookmark...I've got some ideas! Stay tuned! After reading the Twilight series, I've started to read again! So I am in need of bookmarks!!!!!! Got any book recommendations???? Would LOVE to hear them in the comment section!!!!
