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 World Challenge: Sketch by Lynda - Tommy: Apples for Mommy

The Digi Bells design team over at the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog wants to see your projects using Lynda's sketch.  A very lucky randomly selected entry will win TWO Elisabeth Bell digi images of their choice AND a Belles 'n Whistles gift pack that includes a clear stamp!  You can find out more about this challenge and sponsors here.

I've used this marvelous Tommy:  Apples for Mommy stamped image designed by Elisabeth Bell for Elphine House Australia.  You can find him at the Elphine House Australia online store here.  This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  I've added a stamped sentiment to the hanging tag from an older Stampin' Up! All Year Cheer I set.

I've layered patterned paper from a My Mind's Eye A Beautiful Life paper pack with coordinating cardstock.  A Spellbinders Heart Circle and Classic Circle add a circular element to my card that I've tried to repeat with my single, handmade daisy and a few black mini brads.

Here's a view of my completed card front showing my use of Elphine House Australia's Tommy:  Apples for Mommy, as designed by Elisabeth Bell, with this challenge's Sketch by Lynda . . .
