Tracing Paper and Water Colors

I worked on this project at my mom's. She has every supply imaginable so I'm bound to come away with something. I traced my 5 year old's animal drawings onto watercolor paper. (I used tracing paper and a carbon pencil to trace them and went over that with a permanent marker.) Then I watercolored them. I just love her crude drawings. Now I need to think up a fabulous way to display them. I thought about matting and framing each one individually. Any ideas?

Flowers in the Northwest

I will never look at flowers the same since I started painting them. I just got back from the Northwest and was itching to paint every time I saw flowers. I found a little time at my sister Evie's house. The pink dogwood I did for my mom for her b-day, the mural I did in Evie's room her b-day, and the roses my niece Ellie and I did together.
