You can do it with backup and restore...
Right click on your database and backup/restore

This is rhe easiest way...

I've done this several times using SQL Server's built-in backup and restore.  Works like a charm.

Why not just use the SQL built in "Copy" feature from SSMS??
Just right click on a SQL 2008 SSMS then select "Copy Database.." from the drop down menu and follow the easy to use wizzard.
