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 Lots of Love

This sweet little boy is overjoyed to give his loving Mother a bouquet of beautiful handpicked flowers!  You can find this wonderful digi image called Lots of Love at the Elisabeth Bell Digital Gallery here.

This photo shows my Copic-filled digi image . . . 

This cluster of flowers, lightly painted with Diamond Stickles, is formed by layering some punched paper flowers . . .

I've layered Bazzill textured cardstock with My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow "Bloom" Eye Candy floral patterned paper. Bazzill Basics Bling Brads from a Spoiled Brat package adorn one corner. A couple of EK Success Paper Shapers Whale of a Punch Photo Corners add a bit of scallop edge to opposite corners.  Tiny words from a Stampendous Love Buds set seem to promote the loving theme.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing Elisabeth Bell's Lots of Love image . . .
