Why Rosie's Book?

While growing up, I had a dear friend, Renee, that lived next door and with whom I spent much of my childhood. We grew, in different directions, and went on our merry way. Many years later, I ran into her parents and they kindly reminded me of the laughs they still have over my book. “What book?” I wondered with a puzzled look. "I don't remember a book." Hardy laughter accompanied their response. At some time during our childhood, I tried to convince Renee about something that her parents didn’t agree with. I told her that proof of its truth could be found “in my book.” Naturally she went home and tried to convince her parents of the same thing but they weren’t falling for it. She needed an edge and told them emphatically, “It’s in Rosie’s book!” After they caught their breaths from reborn laughter, they let me know how “Rosie’s book” has been cited for many other things throughout the years. They’ve also mentioned that they’d like to see “Rosie’s book” one day. I can’t remember all of the things that I said were in “my book” but I’m sure my dear friend’s parents can recall much more than I ever knew about – LOL!!! So, here it is . . . my version of things you might find In Rosie’s Book . . .

Inspiration from the Masters - Tim Holtz Holiday Tag Art

I'm lucky.

Today I spent some time with a fabulous group of paper crafters who continue to seek creative inspiration from the Best of the Best.

Using some of Ranger's most popular products, we put together these fabulous pieces of tag art.  Mario and Michelle had all of the prep work done and the kits bagged.  Then, Tim Holtz, in his own special way, provided step-by-step instructions on how to put all of the pieces together.
