Once again Rebecca Sower has Heart Sessions on her blog
Go check her latest Heart Sessions no.4
This heart is part of what I am creating using the bits and pieces featured in my post DAY 12
I have been having fun just picking this piece up when I have a few spare minutes

The sequins are really more a flesh colour but have shown up with an apricot tinge to them on the photo

Todays words of love
Love is strong yet delicate
It can be broken
To truly love is to understand this
To be in love is to respect this

Hi, Alison,
Simply beautiful, I love both the material and the buttons.

By the way, I answered the question you asked about editing photos in Comments (of the post concerned)on my blog as there were others who asked the same question I decided to put the answer there.
