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 . . .

Sizzix Big Shot Pro Match Box

I had some fun playing with the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Match Box die cut.

I used KI Memories Posh foliage double-sided patterned paper for both the surrounding section of the box and the sliding insert piece.  There are four sides and the full top of the box to decorate.

Here I placed Circus Tilda from the Magnolia Stamps 2010 Cozy Autumn Collection inside a QuicKutz oval die cut.  I also used a Magnolia Doohickeys tag die to give you an indication of the size of the box top.

This finished Sizzix Big Shot Pro Match Box is 3 5/8" x 5 1/4" x 1 1/8".  The insert slides out easily making it a nice container for including small gift items.

(Ooo . . . this is the first time I've filled this Circus Tilda image.  Next time, I've got to remember to give her something to sit on instead of having her float in mid air - LOL!!!)
