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 . . .

Sizzix Big Shot Pro Carry All Box for Halloween Treats

This sweet little fairy is thrilled to show off her favorite pumpkin from the patch.  She is a digital image, named Pumpkin Fairy Ellora, designed by Elisabeth Bell.  You can get your own Pumpkin Fairy Ellora at Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery here.

This photo shows my Copic-filled image.

I used my Sizzix Big Shot Pro Carry All Box to die cut orange Bazzill paper to create my box.  A strip of deep brown cardstock layered beneath a strip of Moxxie Bump In The Night Dem Bones striped paper surrounds my box.  Black Fun Fir is tied around the handle for my only embellishment.

This photo shows a side view of my simple Halloween treat box, displaying Elisabeth Bell's Pumpkin Fairy Ellora digital image . . .

You can find Pumpkin Fairy Ellora and more of Elisabeth's amazing digital images by visiting the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection at her gallery here.
