Grace is All Girl!

This is a picture of the wooden letters I altered to make my 4 year old DD name for over her bed. Don't you just love those pink walls (: Her bed-spread is Disney Princess. I created the letters to coordinate with all the colors in her room. The paper is Basic Grey and the paint is a light pink acrylic paint. I also used Pearl acrylic paint from Ranger to distress the edges and give it a glow. I used Glitz Design Bling. Grace is happy with her name (: 
This is a close up of a butterfly I made out of a plastic package. I just found a butterfly image I liked in a magazine and used it for a template. I stamped a flourish on the butterfly and added stickles to the edges of the butterfly. It is hard to see in the picture but really pretty on the letter. This butterfly shows how recycling and reusing = pretty embellishment. 
If you have any questions please feel free to ask! This was an inexpensive decoration to make. 
Let me know what you think!!!!!

My girls would love something like this on their walls. We built our house 2 years ago and I let my girls choose the paint color for their bedrooms and we ended up with Piglet Pink from the Disney colors at Home Depot. When it first went up it was so bright I just knew the painters bought the wrong color but they didn't. It looked better after curtains were put up, etc. but it's still very pink.
