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 . . .

Card Art with Copics: Magnolia Princess and the Frog

I love this image of the Princess and the Frog from the Magnolia 2010 Fairy Tale Collection.  This single image stirs up so much emotion and there's a gazillion thoughts that can be added to compliment this image.

I used Bazzill Seawater cardstock to create the card then added Best Creations Sweet Love double-sided patterned paper.  The "from the heart" printed ribbon is from Creative Impressions.  A few Spellbinders Scalloped Hearts and Prima Crystals/Pearls finish the inside base.  I used a computer-generated, handmade ticket sentiment and added a simple heart charm.

I think the bull's eye effect from the layers of paper really helps to draw a viewer's eyes to the image in the card's center.

This pic shows the completed easel-styled card . . .

What an adorable card, Rose. I have this image too and need to ink it up - it really is sweet. The papers and layout are just perfect to show her off. Well done!
