Copy Cat Craft : PB Kids Spring Plaque

I know several people who are expecting babies soon! Some still don't know the sex of their kid, but I took the chance one would be a girl after looking through the PB Kids catalog and seeing these cute pictures, then remembering seeing similar stuff at the Dollar Tree! I bought the supplies a couple weeks ago and have been waiting for time to make it. Today was a sick day for me (ugh!) but that meant I had plenty of time to spend in bed and the perfect spot to try out my craft! I started with decals and a canvas ($4 + tax total), and pictures of the inspiration pulled up on my computer screen...

I applied the decals and rearranged them until I liked them...


Then added some sticker letters I already had with a cute quote I found...
And here's the original (on the bottom right)...http://www.potterybarnkids.com/products/romantic-spring-plaques/popup/more-views.html

I'm happy with how it turned out, and it cost me about 10% of what PB Kids is selling it for! Yay!
