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 . . .

This photo shows my Copic filled Sweet Pea Stamps Dance of Butterfly by Ching-Chou Kuik.

I've added a lace border to the top and a bit of knotted lace to the bottom.  Basic Grey's designer rhinestones bling it in gold toned swirls adds to the swirls found in the Creative Imaginations Teri Martin Feel the Rhythm patterned paper.  A simple netted and wired butterfly sports a little marquis shaped rhinestone as its body.  I used this light cluster of embellishments to enhance my focal point image.

Hi Rose,

Hate to bother you. I won the big 2 year challenge last week and haven't heard from Mary. I sent her two messages but haven't gotten a reply back. Can you help me get in touch with her. I'm dying to start using all the amazing products I won.

Thanks so much Rose.
