This is my favorite painting my DD did when shortly after she turned 18. She got married in May and now that she's moved out, I am taking over her room for my Stamp Room!! I hated to paint over this, but it's time! I am getting an official stampin' space at last!!

Wait!! Why paint over them? I painted Cinderella all over my bedroom walls when I was a teen (mostly the castle and landscapes) and my Mom still hasn't painted over them .... that was 30 years ago!!! She just set up her office/sewing room and put fake frames around them. When she paints that room, she uses painters tape and plastic to cover them up to protect them. A couple years ago when I flew home for a visit, I cut in around the art work and blended the normal wall color right up to the artwork. The whole room looked like new again.
Your daughters art work is lovely .... having done the same thing when I was a teen I know how much fun she had creating it.

My husband said it was him or the rubber stamps. I still think about him every now and then. :)
There is no way I would paint over those either.. I don't care for what room.. lol.
My little girl who is 6 is completely and totally in love with Lion King. I mean she is obsessed with it. She has every stuffed animal there is and just adores anything LK. I showed her this picture and her eyes lit up.
I think that is a great idea.. putting fake frames around the art work.. this is truly priceless.. should be on that commercial :0).
