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 Peek-A-Bunny

This lovely little lady, resting thoughtfully on a tree strump while a sweet bunny peeks at her from the other side, was released as a digi image by Elisabeth Bell in April of this year.

Here's a pic of my Copic-filled image.

I've layered Pink Paislee's Enchanting Delightful butterfly patterned paper with Bo Bunny doubledots and cardstock to create my side open card.  Diamond Stickles is painted over the petals of handmade flowers that surround my image and a friendly sentiment from an older Stampin' Up! Serene Spring set.  Here's a view of my card front showcasing my use of Elisabeth Bell's Peek-A-Bunny digital image . . .

You can find Peek-A-Bunny and more of Elisabeth's amazing digital images by visiting the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection at her gallery here.
