Breaking Dawn fun

I'm a big fan of Broadway, so I l-o-v-e Sirius/XM Broadway. I listen to it while driving ds to and from school (Christine Pedi in the a.m. and Seth Rudetsky in the p.m. -- I enjoy their back stories about Broadway shows.) So one morning, I hear Hugh Jackman singing "I Go to Rio" from The Boy from Oz, Peter Allen's life story. My warped mind immediately made the association to the last Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, because Bella and Edward go to Rio for their honeymoon. I knew I had to make a card.

I picked up this stamp set in Barnes & Noble back when Twilight first came out -- notice Jacob's long hair. (Don't know if you can still find it, but the website of the company that made it is listed as

I decided to print an image of Rio and put a little scene together.

I found the cottage from Stampin' Up's retired Woodland Cottage set and a Unity sentiment fit nicely with the two lovers. (Especially since a cottage is featured in the book as well.) I kept it black and white except for the addition of a little blood red matting. (Cherry Cobbler to be exact...)

So that's my homage to Breaking Dawn. (I think I'll submit it to Somewhat Simple's link party today. See icon in left sidebar, too.)

Thanks for dropping by. If you're one of the lucky people that is going to the midnight premiere tonight, don't tell me how Part One ends! I hope to see it sometime this weekend.

See you tomorrow for Unity's Friends with Flair blog hop...

A Twilight stamp set? That is the coolest thing I've ever seen! I prefer Jacob with his short hair though. LOL
