My Girl's Room - ABC's and Easy Art

A few simple additions to my girl's room:

I found some wall stickers at a nearby dollar store (Dollar Tree) and put the alphabet along a boring window wall in my daughter's room. My 2 year-old loves singing the ABC's.

Also in the last few weeks, I used a fancy software called Microsoft Word (haha) to put the words "I love to see the temple" onto a black and white photo I took of my daughter at the Mesa Temple. Then, I printed it out on normal copy/printer paper and used decoupage and smoothed the print onto an 8X10 sized canvas. I picked up this canvas in a pack for really cheap at Michaels awhile back during a sale.

I like making art on these canvases because they are easy to hang and I like the canvas look. 
I love how this looks with the contrasted black and white. Shea loves it too.

I love LOVE love that temple photo. It is so much more real when they see themselves in the picture, I think!

What a great idea! I can't wait to try this! Did you upload the photo into Word to add in your message?

Yes, when in Word, I inserted the photo from a file on my computer. Then, I right clicked on it and clicked "Text Wrapping" and selected "Behind Text" so the white words would show over the photo. So simple...I love it. :)
