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 . . .

Crafts and Me Challenge: Ribbons

The Dynamite Digi team at Crafts and Me Challenges wants to see ribbon on your projects. The lovely Teresa of Crafts and Me Stamps is offering a whopping SIX digi images to the winner of a randomly selected entry. Find out more about this challenge here.

I've used a wonderful and recently released digi stamp by Hannah Lynn named Violet.  This photo shows a view of my Copic-filled mermaid image.

I added a layer of Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection patterned paper to cranberry and brown Bazzill cardstock.  A bit of Offray's Holiday Sentiments Ribbon wraps around a Martha Stewart Rings punched border.  A Stampin' Up! sentiment from the Circle of Friendship set adds a cheery holiday hello.

Prima's Say It In Pearls and Marianne Design Creatables Decorative Elegance add a swirly touch to the Mulberry Paper Mini Roses by Recollections.  This photo shows the completed holiday card front using Violet mermaid by Hannah Lynn.
