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 . . .

Zentangle-inspired Sizzix Big Shot Pro Bag with Handles

I'm looking forward to our family gathering for our Easter Breakfast meal and want to include a small candy filled favor at each place setting.  In comes the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Bag with Handles.

I printed my previously scanned Zentangle-inspired art on both sides of plain white cardstock.  The Sizzix Big Shot Pro Bag with Handles made it so easy to die cut the shape of this perfectly sized favor bag.  The scored lines made it simple to adhere the tabs.

Double-sided printing allows the inside of the bag to showcase tangles too.

In just minutes, I was able to add a little Easter grass filler and several varieties of individually wrapped chocolates.

A simple bow of ribbon tied around a handle adds a sparkle.  This pretty little favor bag will likely be a great conversation piece for our gathering.

May your Easter be overflowing with sweetness!  Enjoy!
