Baby Girl's Flowers

Every day, I rock Baby Girl to sleep and see this across from me.......

And I love the shelves I re-did, and love the flower pot, flowers and butterflies from Hobby Lobby (whose colors never show right in pictures, I promise they match well with her bedding!).
But the flowers and butterflies have been bugging me lately! It just needed something to tie it all in! So, as I sat in the rocking chair every day for the past month or so, I thought up this......

At first, I thought about doing green stems and leaves for the flowers, but there is zero green in her room, so I thought up this black vinyl project!

I used black Cricuit vinyl from JoAnn's- at 2 sheets for $9.99 it isn't cheap, but they always put out 40% or 50% coupons in Sunday's paper, to help make it cheaper! I can handle about $6 for this project, which took up less than 1 sheet and some other projects I have in the works!
I don't have a Cricuit cutting machine though (I really want a Sillouhette one!), so I freehanded all of this!

I drew the stems and leaves on the back of the vinyl, cut them out, and placed them over and over and over until I got them right! :) Thank goodness you can do that with vinyl!
I used a chalk marker to write "Watch Me Grow." It can wipe off with a damp cloth, so I can change the words whenever I want!

Oh, and I must confess......I did this....while she was sleeping, over top of her! Yes, I climbed on a step stool and leaned over the crib while she slept through the whole thing! And took pictures while she was sleeping!


Never moved a muscle! She is her father's daughter and can sleep through anything! Normally I wouldn't do a project over top of her, lol, but I knew I'd be interrupted if I did it during the day! So late at night it was!

Now, I can rock in peace with out the wall yelling at me to fix it, and this is my view instead!

One more number to mark off the list of Baby Girl projects! Projects #1, 5, and 11 (this one!) are complete! Eight more to go! Half of the materials for other projects have been gathered, I just have to order some more fabric! Hope these can get done along with all my other projects, PLUS Christmas is about to hit!!

Sharing this project at these linky parties! Visit them for more great ideas and inspiration!
