Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 2 "A Friendship through the Years"

It’s week two in our fabulous Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop and I just have to say that I LOVED working with Karen Burniston’s 3D Twist Pop up Cube. What a blast this die was to play with! I thought because it was a pop up cube, it would be much more difficult to assemble. Boy was I surprised! Karen’s instructions were precise and easy to understand.

I decided to center my pop up cube on my best friend and sister-in-law, Tina Deccio. Tina and I became best friends over 33 years ago when I started dating her brother and now my wonderful husband, Rich. We have had so much fun together throughout the years and our friendship had only deepened more with my battle with Crohn’s Disease. She has always been there for me and I really could not imagine my life without her. I love her more than words could ever say, and I think you can see how deep our friendship is through the pictures on my pop up cube.

Here is the list of supplies that I used to create my “A Friendship through the Years” pop up cube. I hope that you have someone special in your life that you can create this wonderful pop up cube for. It is a gift they will cherish for a very long time. I hope you have as much fun as I did working with this die.
