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: Elisabeth Bell's My Prince

This lovely little princess proudly wears her jeweled crown as she kisses a frog that could very well be her prince charming.  This digital image, designed by Elisabeth Bell, is named My Prince.  You can find her at the Elisabeth Bell Digital Gallery here.

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

I've die cut my image using Memory Box' Debutante Frame then added the swirly Vaudeville Frame.  A cluster of Prima Sugar Plum Roses Banana, Recollections Mulberry Paper Mini Roses, Petaloo Dazzlers Florettes and McGill fern punches adorn the lower portion of my card.  It's connected to a Sizzlits crescent tag stamped with a sentiment from a Just Rite Cling Elizabeth O. Dulemba Adorable Dragon set.  A QuicKutz frog and crown topped with several K&Co Peppermint Twist adhesive rhinestones completes my lower border.

Here's a closer look at my bottom border . . .

My Mind's Eye State of the Heart 2010 "Full of Love" paper is layered with Kraft paper and Bazzill cardstock.  A My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Mabel "Little Lady" lace trim lines the left side of my image.  QuicKutz mini bugs dragonflies flutter around the image.

Here's my completed card front showing my use of Elisabeth Bell's My Prince digital image . . .
