Making Memories!

Things are coming together beautifully with my daughter's room makeover as my final FAMILY project this month. I hope to have a finished picture to share with you this weekend, but until then, here is a sample of some of the beautifully, girly projects we've been working on.
Several of our projects have come directly from the inspiration and direction of our Girl's World book. It wasn't really planned, but it has all worked out perfectly!
My daughter knew she wanted a Memory Board for her new room, so I ordered a little extra of the fabrics she had picked to make this special one. It's called the Molly Patchwork Memory Board.
 My daughter measured the space where she wanted it and then I went to work!
 She decided she wanted ric rac instead of ribbon for the trim, and I love the added character it gives! It did require an entire afternoon's trek all over the countryside since we were of course about 1/2 a yard short with what I had in my stash, and the first 2 stores we visited were out....but all in all, the finished product was exactly what she wanted, and that was what I was aiming for. :)
 We finished our diamond accents with a fun assortment of coordinating pink buttons, and it's now ready to be hung in her new room.

I'm not sure at this point who is more excited to see it complete, me or her!
This has been such a fun project to work on together. 
More fun details to come!

It's extra special that you and your daughter have been able to work on this project together and I'm sure she will always remember it. The memory board looks fantastic. I think ric rac was a good choice.

That looks so incrdible. The trek for the ric rac was definitely worth it because it adds so much character to it! Can't wait to see her finished room!

Your little girl's got great taste in fabric!! I've never have thought to use ric rac but it looks so funky!!

I agree Kate! It comes very naturally for her too, I love to watch her. I'm a little more reserved with color, so it's inspiring to me when she stretches me like this. :)
