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 . . .

Card Art with Copics: Crafts and Me Stamps A Princess is Born by Hannah Lynn

This beautiful, recently released, digital image is named A Princess Is Born and is designed by artist Hannah Lynn for Crafts and Me Stamps.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.

I've layered butterfly and flower patterned papers from a Making Memories Flower Patch paper pack with cardstock.  My image rests on a Spellbinders Circle inside of a Labels Three frame.  Notice how her legs extend "beyond the edge" of the die cut circle so I used the "Beyond the Edge" technique when die cutting her.  A bit of Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Punch Garden Trellis borders the center of my card.  My sentiment is from an older Stampin' Up! Circle of Friends set.  I had some handmade Asters, Daisies and Blossoms remaining from a previous card that coordinate with this card's colors and make a nice flower cluster for this card too.  My flowers are resting on top of a Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork die cut and swirls of Prima crystals.

Here's a view of my card front:

This view shows the inside of my card.  I've used a sentiment from a Hero Arts Huge Hugs set.

This photo shows my completed easel card where I've used Hannah Lynn's A Princess Is Born digital stamp . . .
