Jewel Flower Foil Heart and Wallpaper!!

 Hello friends
It isn't too far off from Valentine's Day so I think it is fine to feature a heart!!
This is my very first project for Julianna Hudgins' Design Team.
I've used Jewel Flowers and Flourishes and craft foil.
All the details can be found here and you know what I'm going to ask...
I would be so very grateful if you could leave a comment on that blog - especially
as it is my first project and I'm just a little bit eager to impress... :)
Here is a close up of the foil flowers.
Other news...
A nostalgic moment....It was my brother in law's birthday this week and my niece, Rachel made is Mitchell assisting with the fresh cream. 
When these two cousins were little they did baking together and it is quite 
incredible to think they are both nearly 19!
Progress photos....
Yes the wallpaper is here!!
My Dad putting it up on one wall in the studio/shop - it turned out to be a real problem because 
nothing was straight..he did a brilliant job.
 I chose the same design to have on one wall of my craft room.
It is a bold design and no butterflies but I love the flowers - it reminds me so much of
Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird paper design ...
We worked solidly yesterday.  Now it is time for a big clean up and I can then start to move
all the furniture in - a lot of organising but fun.
None of this could have happened without my family - especially my amazing parents,
they are work horses - I'm flagging and they just keep going!!  
Final craft/life recap coming soon.
Also - for those of you who asked when the Artisan X-Plorer machine will be here in the UK..
it should be here in April..perhaps we should have a little countdown clock :)
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, WOW, this is absolutely gorgeous, I'm truly loving the craft foils, never seen them before, they are going on my Wish List, this is a definite transformation for the original beautiful filigree heart, it is stunning. You have used one of my favourite die sets, the jewel flowers and flourishes, I use this die set on a regular basis, it is beautiful.
Brilliant piccies of Mitchell and Rachel filling the profiteroles and the wallpaper being put up by your Dad, when I first saw the paper it reminded me of Cosmo Cricket too, it is lovely and fresh, and definitely a crafting wallpaper.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Beautiful design, but I know darn well I'd never find a heart in my local shops (I live in Ireland).

Good for Dad, his wallpapering skills are great!

Hi Christine - just left a comment over on the other site. How much concentration the young ones have put into the profiteroles! and your mum and dad are trojans too with all their hard work, you must be really proud of everyone. The shop is looking bright fresh and cheerful - love the wallpaper! can't wait sto see it finished.

Love the wallpaper, it's really nice. You can always craft some butterflies and hang them up.
The filigree heart project is really nice too. Need to try die cutting with foil sometime, it's very effective.
