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 Going on a Walk Digi Bells' Blog Hop

It seems to me that an update was rolled out to my pc/laptop that included a tormenting code to keep me from adding any photos without unbelievable frustration and near-to-tears desperation.  I've read about other bloggers having trouble with loading their pics but have not experienced this trouble until now.  I nearly gave up . . . Why does this happen?  What's the solution to keep it from happening again?  That's enough crying from me about that for now . . .guess it was my turn.

* * * * *

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

How can you win your own Going on a Walk digi image? You'll have to hop through and leave comments on EACH blog. [You can find the full list of 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, February 28, 2014 at 9 AM to leave comments. The winners will be posted at the Digi Bells' blog on Saturday, March 1, 2014.

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

I've used this sweet little lady with her playful friend on a side-open card.  Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image .

I've machine-sewed a layer of rose patterned Authentique's 6x6 Bundle "Lovely" collection with Bazzill's Forest, Kisses red and Piglet pink cardstock.  A beautiful Whimsy Stamps Mini Lace Corner Doily 1 Die adds a delicate touch to the upper left corner of my image.  A row of Heidi Swapp clear bling borders adds some bling below my image.  An Offray green gingham 1/4" ribbon slides through a Whimsy pearl heart slider to show some love.  A My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody "Like" salmon colored twine lines the right side of my image and is tied through a My Minds Eye Lost and Found Madison Ave "Sisters" button lying over my bow.  A Whimsy Magical Mini Letter Seals round sentiment, cut with a Lifestyle Crafts 1 1/4" circle die, is popped up over a Whimsy Fancy Circle Die.

A strip of coordinating rose patterned paper lies below a Spellbinders Marvelous Squares-shaped writing area that includes white paper with softened rounded corners for a personalized handwritten message on the inside . . .
