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 Stamps Challenge: Add a Ribbon

The Dynamite Digi design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants you to Add a Ribbon to your projects.  Letraset is sponsoring this challenge and offering a set of Promarkers to a randomly selected entry.  You can find out more about this challenge and sponsor here.

I've used a soon-to-be-released digi image named Frenchie Friends Michelle and Jojo, designed by Hannah Lynn, exclusively for Crafts and Me Stamps.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image . . . Ooo!  Looking at her posed here makes me want to ride along some countryside . . .

I've layered Best Creations A Walk in the Garden glitter paper with Bazzill cardstock.  I've added a Memory Box Charlotte Border with Offray 1/4" gingham ribbon.  A QuicKutz Revolution scalloped corner hugs one corner.  Here's a closer view of my completed card front showing how I've used the  digital image called Frenchie Friends Michelle and Jojo by Hannah Lynn . . .
