Valentine for Granny and Grampy!

Well, here is the valentine that I made for my parents. It was so much fun to make!! A real labour of love. I hope they enjoy it!!
It is connected using my Bind-It-All!! I love my BIA but I don't get to use it very much. I have another project on the go that uses it which I am hoping to finally finish soon. On many of the pages you will see hearts, they are cut out of cardboard, covered with designer paper and either stamped or sewn (using my sewing machine). On one page, you will note a scallop edge on one of the pics, it is really circles cut in half with rub-ons added! Supplies: Paper-Basic Grey, Au Chocolate and Recollections (SU), gingham red (Making Memories, Bazzill cardstock (red); Ink - Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Real Red(SU) ; Stamps, Fancy Flexible Phrases, Too Terrific Tags (SU); Accessories- flowers (BazzillBasics) and (Primas), various buttons, various ribbon (Michaels and SU), hemp (SU), rub-ons (Chatterbox), acrylic paint (red, vanilla), metal photo corners (dollar store), thread, sewing machine, Bind-It-All (Zutter). Thanks for visiting.

Wow, this is gorgeous! I'm sure it will be well loved. I WANT a BIA! I keep hoping the prices will come down a bit so I can justify the expense.

Thanks for making me want one even more!
