The heart was designed by J.L. Vanderslice she wanted to design a basic motif that other people can expand on and this bookmark is the way I expanded on it. What a cute little bookmark to give to your sweetheart for Valentine's day! Thanks Jenn for allowing me to use the great heart motif for this bookmark! You did a great job with designing it!!!
