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: Stripes

The Dynamite Digi design team at the Crafts and Me Challenge blog wants to see your stripes. Crafts and Me is sponsoring this challenge and offering a whopping SIX digi images as a prize to a randomly selected winner. You can find out more about this challenge and their sponsor here.

I've used Copic colors to fill this newly released image by Sara Burrier named Perched At Dawn.  Diamond Stickles, painted over her wings, adds a little magical glimmer.  A Spellbinders Scalloped Octagons die cut defines the shape around my image.  This photo also shows my attempts at creating a background of morning light in the sky.

I've layered stripes from Bo Bunny's Gabrielle Collection with Bazzill cardstock to create my card.  A bit of Spellbinders Floral Flourishes, layered with Prima Say It In Pearls Mixed Crystals Cream, help to embellish a few square buttons and a light Wishing You Well sentiment adorned with a ribbon bow.

This photo shows my completed card front using Perched At Dawn by Sara Burrier:
