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 . . .

Elisabeth Bell's Little Lamb Digi Bells' Blog Hop

To celebrate the newest addition to Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery (here), the Digi Bells Design Team is hosting a blog hop.

How can you win your own Little Lamb digi image?  You'll have to hop through and leave comments on EACH blog.  [You can find the full list of 13 blogs at the Digi Bells Design Team blog (here).]  Lynda will pick 2 blogs at random and the winners will be picked from those comments. The hoppers will have until June 1, 2012 at 9 AM to leave comments. The winners will be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, June 2, 2012.

Another way to win the new image will be to do the hop, leave comments and then to make a "Stitching (Faux or Real)" card using ANY Elisabeth Bell image and post it on the Digi Bells' Blog (here).  This will also end on June 1, 2012 at 9 AM Arizona time and the winner will also be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, June 2, 2012.

Reminder:  Buying then sharing digital images is theft.  Sharing digital images takes income away from the artist.

I've used Little Lamb on the front of a Christmas card.  Cardstock layered with Bo Bunny's A Gift of Love St. Nick, Sugar Plum and Holly Berry patterned paper provides the perfect Christmas-themed background.  A Letterpress/QuicKutz large oval shapes my image.  A QuicKutz manger is surrounded by handmade poinsettias.  An Art Gone Wild! sentiment adorns one corner while a QuicKutz lamb accents another.  Memory Box Holly Vines border both sides of my image.  A QuicKutz Star of Bethlehem and Shepherd's Staff add to my Christmas scene.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing my use of Elisabeth Bell's Little Lamb digi image . . .
