Yippee Skipee!

I am so excited about this post!!! Karl and I did this mural over the weekend for my cousin Deanna's new home. It's in her baby's (Reese) room. (Just imagine the crib in front of it!)



Sorry for the bad pictures. The lighting wasn't the best.

Karl free handed the shapes and I helped shade in the colors. Here is a close up of the super cute little birdie:



At the last moment we decided to add the owl at the top...here is Karl contemplating where to put it:



And here I am working on the branches:



We are also working on her son's (Garrett) race car room...pics to come later!!

I'll be uploading this to all of my favorite linky parties! Go to the link at the top to check all of them out!

That is absolutely gorgeous...if you lived close, I'd pay you to paint at tree somewhere in my home!!

I love the tree! One of my good friends painted a tree in our youngest daughters room. I wish we had digital cameras back in the day - I bet I don't have a decent picture. :( The nursery is going to be amazing - already is with your handy work!

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag this week to tour my home.
