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: Lace

The digi design team at the Crafts and Me Challenge blog wants to see lace on your project.  Letraset is sponsoring this challenge and offering a set of five promarkers to a randomly selected entry.  You can find out more about this challenge and their sponsor here.

I've used a newly released digi image from Sara Burrier called Porcini.  I generally size my digis to an average of 3.5".  This photo shows how I've used Copic colors to fill this image after I've used the "beyond the edge" technique with a QuicKutz cookie cutter tag die.

I've kept my embellishments light but found that these flower buttons bring out the flowers of the Bo Bunny Petal Pushers - Garden background paper.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

This photo shows a full view of my Porcini easel card . . .
