Butterfly Swizzle Sticks A few days ago I shared a Butterfly Thank You card using the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and also the Butterfly Punch

Today I thought I would share a fun 3-d project using the same items.  I found these great projects on my website under Shop Now and then select Browse Projects.

I was sooo…. excited when stampin' demo friend Sue Hyer emailed and said she was going to be in MN and wanted to drop by for a quick visit.  Sue lives in the state of VA and we meet on cruise several years ago.  Cruise friends are very special as you get to spend quality time together year after year.  She tried to visit last year in April when she was in MN visiting family, but can you believe we had a snow storm and she wasn't able to make it to my house.  I told her that I think August would be safe we haven't had any significant snow fall in August!  

It has been a hectic summer and with only a few hours before her arrival I thought I don't have a gift.  I knew what ever it was it would have to be quick and easy.  So I decided to make her a Top Note photo album to remember her trip to MN.
