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 . . .

Window Card with Sara Burrier's Lady of Opal

This lovely Sara Burrier digital stamp named Lady of Opal was recently released at Crafts and Me Stamps.

This view shows my Copic-filled image.  I've painted a thin layer of Diamond Stickles over her wings for some sparkle and added a dot of Goldenrod Stickles to the flowing flowers.

An Accent Depot Music Notes brad, a glimmer brad and a Recollections mulberry paper mini rose is centered in each of my Prima white paper flowers to create this flower cluster.

I used Spellbinders Labels Eight to create a window on the front of my Bazzill olive card and added a matting of My Minds Eye 2010 Holly Jolly "Ornamental" paper.  A Memory Box Delicate Vine borders a side of the frame as well as the other side of the image inside of the card.  The computer-generated quote taken from the 1955 "Let There Be Peace on Earth" lyrics by Jill Jackson Miller and Sy Miller is part of one of my favorite church songs, often associated with Christmas, and seems to be appropriate for use with this image.

Here's how the inside of my window card looks when opened . . .
