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 . . .

I've had the pleasure of working with Love Ewe to create a pink-toned, loving card.  This view shows my Copic-filled image . . .

I've machine-sewed a layers of My Mind's Eye Penny Lane Tiny Dancer "Pirouette" Twirling Circles Paper with Bazzill cardstock.  A strip of Wrights' 3/8" Creative Classics white cotton heart lace lies over a strip of Michael's 5/8" Summer Flowers pink dot ribbon.

I've flipped and reduced the size of this digi image then fussy cut it without the heart so I could pop it up below the sheep as though it were the offspring of the larger image.

A Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Elegant Flourishes die cut lies behind my spring floral and feather spray made of Jo-Ann's Spring Inspiration picks of pink berries and buds, pink ribbon rose and pompom flowers.  A jeweled, netted butterfly adorns one corner with three Big Crystal Stickers in light pink from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

Here's a view of the completed front of my card showcasing Ladybug Crafts Ink Love Ewe image. . .
