There's a fly on the frog... Sorry, I always think of this song when 
I find an awesome project that someone found from someone that found from someone that found from... you get the idea.   I saw this
beautiful handkerchief or napkin idea from Shirley
who got the idea from Suzanne who got the idea from
Stampartic. Anyway, I was having
some major mojo issues today and needed some 
help, so this was a perfect little jump. 
This is for a friend's Anniversary.
So many people got married in June
This is one of many I will be making for this month.
