Bookmark this event!

So I got some Buckle Boutique Dazzling Diamond rhinestone sheets and it is a lot of fun to play with. I admit I was a little skeptical about cutting it out on my Cricut, but it really does work and they have the instructions for the settings on your machine to use.

This is my first project using my Cricut, Paper Dolls p.41 cut at 1". 
 I did clean up a few edges using my scissors but overall was very pleased at how it cut through the sheet.

Added a small trim from the sheet at the bottom of the bookmark.

Now normally I would have covered the backside to conceal the cereal box that I used to create the bookmark with but seriously, I had to leave it alone because I had another quote (one of my favorites) to add. I think it goes along with the theme of the First Frost quote very well. :)

I made this whimsical bookmark for the author Sarah Addison Allen and the quote is from her newest book "First Frost". I was first introduced to her books by my friend Jamie on our 9 hour road trip to Florida with an audio book Garden Spells, which I liked so much that I immediately, upon returning home, went to the library and read all 4 of her books. I am looking forward to the latest book. So anyway, we had the opportunity to go see her and we came bearing small gifts. 
Here is a short video clip of the most darling story she told us about her Aunt Charlotte!

And a few pictures of Jamie and myself enjoying all the fun at the book signing. 

Sarah Addison Allen is a doll, sweet and charming and I hope you check out not only her newest book First Frost but her other books as well. She will enchant you with every page!
