Unsuccessfuly setting my scrappy hearts

I love what everyone is doing with their 15 minutes. So inspiring.

As for me, I have gone ahead and set my scrappy heart blocks, and I tried to think outside of the box, but I am not thrilled with the way it came out.
It doesn't read this way, but it is supposed to be alternating sets (snowball block, bordered block, snowball block) but the borders are too thin (due to my own errors) so it isn't giving me the alternating look I had pictured in my mind:
Oh well, that is what experimenting is for!

I'm finishing this off and starting a new with the lessons that I learned, there are plenty of scraps where these came from!

One man's trash is another man's treasure, as they say. I think the way it looks is totally wonderful. I would thik a dark border made out of the 4 colors of scraps made with scrappy swuares and then a white outside border and you are in like flint!

really? you don't like this?? oh my, it's LOVELY!
Put a nice scrappy border of all three colors mixed, all around. Wow!~ it's a knock out. You turned simple heart blocks into some thing, n one has ever scene. You've jumped completely out of the box!

Look again we all love it; it's 10 : 1, might you be wrong!? Glen's idea of adding a border might just do the trick for you.

I love it! I like the little hints of color in the bordered blocks- it's so fresh and interesting! It might not be what you envisioned, but it's still wonderful.
