Playroom Alphabet Border

I have been wanting to paint an alphabet
on our playroom wall for the past 2 years.

Alas, I didn't want to actually stand on a ladder
and do it so...
I procrastinated.

Sometimes my procrastination pays off...
when I saw this genius solution
I knew I'd met a woman after my own heart.

I must say, I've been coveting this scrapbooking
paper set for sometime at our local Walmart
(in the scrapbooking aisle)
but needed a good reason to buy it.

Then, I saw her post and realized that she used
the exact same paper set
(woo-hoo) !!

It was my arts and crafts destiny.

I was supposed to buy it and use it in our playroom
(or at least that's what I told my husband
when he came home and saw what I did!)

And yes, if you were curious...
I put it up on the wall
with my CM tape runner.

Before I added this lovely alphabet,
I hung our Eric Carle alphabet flash cards
from this curtain wire I purchased at IKEA.
It's a less permanent solution if
you're not down with the tape runner
on the wall idea.

I also use the wire to display kid's art work
and seasonal decor.
(those are just little curtain clips that I clip the art with)
