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 World Challenge: Sizzling Summer Scene

The Digi Bells design team over at the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge Blog wants to see your Sizzling Summer Scene projects.  A very lucky randomly selected entry will win TWO Elisabeth Bell digi images of their choice AND TWO Whimsy Stamps rubberstamp images designed by Elisabeth Bell!  You can find out more about this challenge and sponsors here.

I've used this wonderful Sand Play rubberstamped image designed by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  You can find him at the Sweet Pea Stamps online store here.  This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.

I've also used this fabulous Sweet Cheeks Peeker rubberstamped image designed by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD). You can find her as part of the Peekers Collection #2 at the SCACD online store here. This pic shows a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  Yes, at her feet you see Miami Beach sand by Mudpuddles.

I've layered Paper Adventures Island Lagoon Seashells patterned paper with coordinating cardstock. A sentiment from a Close To My Heart Treasures set adorns one corner.  A few BasicGrey Opaline half pearls line another corner.  A QuicKutz pail, shovel and seashell are layered with real shells for a beachy corner cluster.

Here's a view of the front of my completed inset box card showing my use of BOTH Sweet Pea Stamps Sand Play AND SCACD Sweet Cheeks Peeker, as designed by Elisabeth Bell . . .
