paintpartyfriday!/decoupage

I am decoupaging a table that was my moms with paper cut outs of birds. The patterns from the birds are from scrap pieces of my mother in law. She was a quilter and used fabric from her dresses to make her quits.My daughter in law asked me to do something for the nursery of her first baby girl(our first grand baby)! So I created the designs of both moms for our grand daughter!
I think it will be a design that will grow with baby gatto!
