Good luck!

UPDATE 3/5/10: If no one correctly guesses all 16 altered hearts by this Sunday, I will post a HINT to help you along.

UPDATE 3/7/10: One week has past so I am now giving HINT #1 to help figure out the 16 altered candy hearts. I would like to confirm what some people might have suspected or wondered: All 16 altered hearts are unique, no text was changed to be the same on any two hearts. This means that all duplicate hearts are ‘original’ hearts. This makes is a bit easier, right?

UPDATE 6/9/10: We have a winner!! Christa Eastis figured out all 16 altered hearts! Congratulations Christa!! Please contact me about getting your canvas print to you!
