Hello Donna,

(A decoupage idea) If you decorated the kid's room with themed wallpaper and have any left- over scraps, buy an unstained but wide picture frame. Paint the frame in whatever colour suits you then using very sharp scissors or a Stanley knife, cut out the shapes of the wallpaper and glue them onto the frame. Don't be afraid to glue the shapes past the edge of the frame. (If the over-hanging pieces of paper become a bit flimsy and/or curls, glue small pieces of cardboard behind them.) Once everything is dry, paint a clear coat over the entire frame.

Last, but not least, add one of your favourite baby pictures!

NB: If you don't have scraps of wallpaper just buy a piece of wrapping paper which has a baby theme and cut out the shapes from that.
