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: Kenny K's Rock Dude

This super cool rockin' dude screams out while he jams on his guitar.  He is a digi image, named Rock Dude of the Rock Squad Collection, designed by Kenny Kiernan.  You can get your own Rock Dude at the Kenny K Downloads online shop here.

This photo shows my Copic-filled image entertaining everyone who watches and listens.

Bazzill brown Bling and smooth Sunflower cardstock is layered with musical note patterned Creative Imaginations Rythym Foil to support the musical theme.  My image is layered with Lifestyle Crafts Large Oval die cuts.  A Close To My Heart Card Chatter - Birthday sentiment fits nicely in one corner while a Lifestyle Crafts Doodles cookie cutter You Rock die cut is topped with a QuicKutz revolution chef clothing set chef's hat for a very personalized touch.  A bit of Prima's Say It In Pearls Mixed Crystal Brown joins the supporting accents together.  A Satin Sensations Chocolate bow lies in the lower corner.
This photo shows the front of my card, displaying Kenny K's Rock Dude . . .

The base is decorated to match the front.  A simple Birthday Bring stamped sentiment by Endless Creations is my only addition besides the grounding strip.

It's Happy Mail!!! Someone special will be receiving this card soon.  Who is a chef that likes to jam and scream while playing his electric green Dean Dimebag Razorback?  Ahhh . . . could it be you?
