Heart Specimen Art

 I wish I could take credit for this simple and completely beautiful heart specimen art frame but my BFF made it for me as a house warming gift when we moved into our new house.  I just love it!
I was excited to bring it out of my book shelf (where curious hands can not get to it) to decorate for Valentine's day. And I love the simplicity that anyone can do it. 
Just cut or punch out several different kinds of scrapbook paper into tiny hearts, glue them to simple or decorative paper, and put it in a frame!  So easy!
 And I love that she used the initials for everyone in my family placed randomly on the hearts. 
And I especially love how it matches my decor.  
And how funny is it that I did not want my reflection in the frame so instead you can see my arm as I stretched it out to the side to take the photo. Typical. :)

A fun and easy project for you this weekend!
