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 Hannah Lynn Image

The design team over at the Crafts and Me Stamps' challenge blog wants to see how you use Hannah Lynn images on your projects.  Hannah Lynn is sponsoring this challenge and a randomly selected entry will receive a wonderful signed 8x10 inch matte photo print direct from Hannah herself! You can find out more about this challenge and sponsor here.

I've used the newly released digital image named Payton by Hannah Lynn on a double gatefold card with a window.  Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.

Bazzill's light blue and green cardstock is layered with Imaginisce double-sided balloon/spots patterned paper to create my card.  My image is shaped to be seen through a window formed using a Lifestyle Crafts Large Circles die set.  A 5/8" Satin Sensations Island Blue ribbon bow provides an element to hang a vintage "sweet thing" charm from a Tim Holtz idea-ology Trinket Pin.
Here's a view of the front of my card when closed showing how I've used the Payton digital mermaid image . . .

This view shows my double gatefold card with windows on each side as it stands open and ready for display.
