Sneaky peek Thursday - LOVE papercut

I though I would share a slightly un-sneaky peek with you all! I've dug through my photos and flicked through my sketch book to share the story and scribbley sketches of the development of my LOVE papercut.
 

 
I have been mentally playing about, for a few months, with the idea of doing a paper cut with the infinity symbol and the word love and I'd done a couple of scribbles ages ago.  But I felt they weren't really "me" and had left the idea looming in my sketch book. 
 

While idly wasting time, ehhm I mean "researching" on Pinterest I can across a tattoo of the word love formed into an, almost, heart shape and whirr, whirr, click, click the wheels began turning again. 
 
 
Would this make a better basis for the LOVE cut?  Could I make it "me" enough?
 
I sometimes worry that my sketch book is like the inner working of my mind.....and when you look at this page there are at least four ideas I'm working on....at once!
Almost there, not completely convinced about the flowers and leaves on the bottom of the "heart" shape.........
 
 
A few more sketches later and BINGO! It's LOVE, it's "me"!
 

 

 Here it is, all framed up!
