Hearts - Hearts - Hearts, and more Hearts

I'm back again today with another fun project to share with you....  I told you I was a busy little bee lately, and I promised that there would be some "Valentine" themed projects that I had been working on...  What I have to share with you today, is just one of them....

Today starts a new challenge over at Elphine House Australia's Challenge Blog, and I made this especially for that.  Anyone who has seen this over on that blog has only seen the front... But I thought you'd be interested in seeing the entire project from front to back...  ha ha....

Please don't ask where I come up with these very random project ideas, because I really don't know, to be honest, I just started with a hand drawn Heart, and I let my mind get carried away....  this is the end result....

For my cover I've used Laura Flower Girl from Elphine House Australia, designed by the super talented Elisabeth Bell.  I colored her with copics, and completely fell in love with the shades of pinks and reds that I used on her. 




Inside this heart you will find smaller hearts, which I've turned into pages of this Valentine book/card.













Do you think that this was what I had in mind when I started???  Nooooo, not at all.....  I really only planned on making a hand drawn heart shaped card.....  I ended up with this very pretty heart shaped booklet... 

I've also used stamps from Belles 'n Whistles, and Whiff of Joy, for the inside pages. 

I've entered this little valentine project into these challenges:
