This is awesome. I love the idea of using the book as a frame and being able to switch out the photos. The curled in pages on the left side are brilliant and add the effect of waves to your beach theme.The heart cutout with the text showing around the edges is so fun and really draws the eye to the photo. Great embellies, too. I'd say you nailed this challenge!

I love your page. Great idea to cut the heart and love the look of the left page. Thanks for sharing,


This is beautiful, Broni. I just can't figure out how you were able to cut the hearts out using dies while the book pages were still bound in the book.


The embedded heart frame is just wonderful... and I love the dimension you've created with the rolled pages. Beautiful colours too, and I can't wait to see what happens with all those bookpage hearts!!

Speechless Broni . . .that heart is just too stunning for words!! What a heart touching keepsake you have made and I love the sentiment which is oh so true, love,love,love it!!!

Oh wow! I love that you created something INSIDE the book! Genius!!! I love that it's a beach picture!!! LOVE the beach!
Love all the details, the paint, the hearts, everything!

Broni, I just love how you cut the heart right out of the pages. Clever and beautiful. Amazing job.

Oh MY!! What is not to love about this?! I love how the heart frame turned out, I love the rolled pages, OMG...I'm gushing...LOVE THE WHOLE THING!!


Wow! I absolutely love this! The folded pages resemble waves, and then all the little bits of beach glass and sand and shells...just fantastic. Love the graduated heart (that is NOT easy to do) and the vibrant colors. So, are you hooked on altered books?

AAAHHHHHH!!!! This is me screaming and jumping up and down like a girlie girl! This is so fantastic! I'm absolutely love this, Broni! The only thing that could be better is if I could see this in person! Love it!

Karen Pounds

I love it! Absolutely beautiful!


This turned out fabulous Broni wow love it turned out GREAT for your first try.... Thanks for sharing...


Beautiful, love the soft colors and how fantastic you can change out the picture. The page folding was genius.


For somebody that didn't have a clue, you are a genius! How cool that you can change your beach photos out. Wonderful colors and words. It's got a heart, so it works for Valentines as far as I'm concerned. And this is worthy of a place on the mantle. Exceptionally magnificent altered book!


Broni, this is a wonderful example of creativity! The heart layers worked out perfectly...beautiful, fun and colorful you hit all the marks that make a project unique nicely :-)

Catching up on posting comments this morning and saw your journal pages. All I can say is WOW. Just amazing. And I, too, would love to know how you cut those hearts out of the center of the pages like that. So cool!

Tammy Hershberger

This is freakin' amazing, Broni!

Marjie Kemper

How fabulous is this!?!?! Broni, I love what you've done here from the awesome depth and angle on your niche to the great folds on the left. Stunning!
