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: Lace and Pearls

The Dynamite Digi design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants to see lace and pearls added to your projects.  Crafts and Me Stamps is sponsoring this challenge and offering THREE digital images to a randomly selected entry. You can find out more about this challenge here.

I've used the soon-to-be-released Strings of Worship digital image, designed by Sara Burrier.  You'll be able to find this lovely Strings of Worship digital image soon here.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image, shaped with Lifestyle Crafts Large Ovals die cuts.

I've layered Punch Bunch daisies and birch leaves to add a single handmade Paper White flower, painted lightly with Diamond Stickles.

Layers of patterned paper from a Close To My Heart (CTMH) Serendipity Heart of Winter Project pack with CTMH white core cardstock form my square criss-cross card and plain, rounded corner insert.  A bit of 3/4" cotton lace adds a delicate border surrounding the belly band.  Zva Creative self-adhesive swirls of pearls accent each side of my image.

Here's a view of my completed card front showing how I've used Sara Burrier's Strings of Worship digital image on my card.
