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: Use a Digi

The Dynamite Digi design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants to see you use a digi on your projects.  Letraset is sponsoring this challenge and offering a set of 6 Promarkers to a randomly selected entry. You can find out more about this challenge here.

I've used a recently released digi image named Unveiling of Heart, designed by Sara Burrier, exclusively for Crafts and Me Stamps.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  Her cloak extends beyond the edge of the oval die cut and falls beneath my ribbon bow.  This is another great example of how using the Beyond-the-Edge die cutting technique allows the image to appear as though part of it is popping off of the paper.

I've layered KaiserCraft These Days Collection Reunion double sided patterned paper with Bazzill Olive, Cool Cantaloupe and Java cardstock.  A few square brads line two corners of my card.  A Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish and McGill pine branch punches provide filling for my mulberry paper roses and Hero Arts Home set "Hello!" sentiment.

Here's a view of my completed card front  showing how I've used the digital image called Unveiling of Heart by Sara Burrier to say Hello! . . .

You've just got to hop over to the Crafts and Me Stamps Challenge blog to see how the amazingly talented Dynamite Digi girls have showcased their use of Crafts and Me Stamps digital images on their fabulous projects!
