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 . . .

Crafts and Me Stamps Challenge: Use a Digi

The Dynamite Digi design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants to see you use digital elements on your projects.  Marianne Designs is sponsoring this challenge and offering a wonderful goodie package of ribbon, dies and stamps to a randomly selected entry. You can find out more about this challenge and sponsor here.

I've used the newly released digital image named Golden Pond by Hannah Lynn to share get well wishes.  Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.  Diamond Stickles cover her top, hair flower, tail, rocks and some of the glistening grass.

Bazzill cardstock is layered with SEI Diane Garden Party glitter patterned paper to create my card.  My image is shaped to fit inside of a Spellbinders Nestabilities Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares diecut frame.  An Offray 1/4" purple ribbon provides a layered border and a triple bow.
A QuicKutz scalloped photo corner is accented with Close To My Heart Bitty Sparkles for a bit of bling.  A Close To My Heart Say It In Style sentiment fit perfectly along the base of my image.
Here's a view of the front of my card showing how I've used the Golden Pond digital image . . .

The inside of the card is left blank so I can include a handwritten personal note.
