Small Heart Book Swap

Started another Heart Book Swap, but this book is smaller than the last. The first one I worked on was 6" x 6"...this one is 4" x 4" and is a cute little size.
The theme for this one was hearts...and the color Nancy picked was red. As you can see...I can't help throwing a little of my favorite turquoise in too.
I started out with a Maya Row chipboard heart book and took pink and mauve pins and pushed them in all the way around the heart.

I then took one of my newest scrapbook papers and cut them to size to paste on both sides of the heart. I used my Xyron machine to make this happen. I inked and chalked the edges.

I used Paper Whimsy images for both sides of the heart and added trim and blooms to enhance the images.

The first side I titled "Keep your hearts close, but your purse closer". Tee! Hee!
