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: Rick St Dennis Corazon

I find Rick St Dennis' digital image named Corazon a bit intriguing and so I've used her again to display on a round side step card.

Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image . . . It's unfortunate that the amazing sparkle of the Copic atyou Spica Pink over the hearts and trimming doesn't show in this photo.  In real life, it truly does make you say "Wow!"

I've die cut and matted my image using Lifestyle Crafts Large Ovals.

My EK Success Round Curvy Cutter provided the perfect size 6" card base of Bazzill Gray and a 5 1/2" pattern of Kaiser Craft's Love Notes Collection Love Song.  A Memory Box Heart Chain Border lies at the base of my card.  Part of a Cheery Lynn Designs Heartland America Large die and Sizzlits Funky Heart #1 and #2 set behind my Target Seasonal Printed Ribbon bow.  A Prima Gillian Raspberry Flower and Petaloo Dazzlers glitter flowers add a bit of bling to my hearts cluster.  Prima's Say It In Crystals and Zva Creative rhinestone swirls add a bit of movement throughout.

You can find my previous post showing Corazon on a more vintage-looking twisted easel card here.
