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 . . .

Ladybug Crafts Ink carries a sweet line of Cupcake Cuties digital images featuring a lovely young lady and her variety of cupcakes.  I've used Wagon Full of Cupcakes to create a side open card to send birthday wishes to a little someone special.

This view shows my Copic-filled image . . .

Layers of Bazzill Kraft and pink cardstock with Wild Rose Studio's Spring Fling patterned paper form my card.  A machine-stitched border surrounds my patterned paper and image.

I've threaded a string of My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing" yellow twine through the banner stamped and die cut using Whimsy Stamps Celebration Circle Pennants Sentiments and Circle Pennants die set.  A Whimsy Stamps Swirly Balloon Border is die cut using different patterns that are lightly coated with Diamond Stickles for sparkling fun then popped up for a bit of dimension.  My image is shaped using an EK Success Scallop Corner punch layered over a QuicKutz Scalloped Square.

Here's a view of my completed card front showcasing Ladybug Crafts Ink Cupcake Cuties Wagon Full of Cupcakes . . .

The inside coordinates with the front and includes space to add a handwritten note . . .
