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 . . .

Elisabeth Bell's Sweet Surprises Digi Bells' Blog Hop

To celebrate the newest addition to Elisabeth Bell's Digital Gallery (here), the Digi Bells Design Team is hosting a blog hop.

How can you win your own Sweet Surprises digi image? You'll have to hop through and leave comments on EACH blog. [You can find the full list of 11 other blogs at the Digi Bells Design Team blog (here).] Lynda will pick 2 blogs at random and the winners will be picked from those comments. The hoppers will have until Friday, August 30, 2013 at 9 AM to leave comments. The winners will be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, August 31, 2013.

Reminder: Buying then sharing digital images is theft. Sharing digital images takes income away from the artist.

I do not want my delay in posting my photos showing how I've used Elisabeth's newest Sweet Surprises digital image to interfere with your participation in the blog hop.  So please tell me how much you love this new image and hop along.

Here's a view of my Copic-filled image.  I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Cloud Trio Set as masks when airbrushing my background.
