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: Pearls and Roses

The Dynamite Digi design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants to see Pearls and Roses added to your projects.  Crafts and Me Stamps is sponsoring this challenge and offering THREE digi images of the winner's choice to a randomly selected entry.  You can find out more about this challenge and sponsor here.

I've used a recently released digi image named Pearl Princess, designed by Hannah Lynn, exclusively for Crafts and Me Stamps.

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

I've layered Paper Adventures Island Lagoon Seashells with Bazzill cardstock.  A few golden metal prong shell and starfish charms add to my seashell theme.  A bit of Satin Sensations 5/8" Bridal White satin ribbon provides a center border and bow.  Zva Creative swirls of pearls provide the appearance of movement throughout.  Sweet Recollections Mulberry Paper Mini Roses in varied shades of orange are clustered with a bit of glimmer added from Petaloo Dazzlers Florettes.

Here's a closer view of my completed Birthday card front . . .

Here's a view of the inside where I've used a lovely Endless Creations "Birthday Love Peace" sentiment . . .

Here's a view of my completed easel card  showing how I've used the digital image called Pearl Princess by Hannah Lynn to share Birthday wishes . . .
