Stephanie sent this out so quickly! I love all the quirky little animals and bugs and creatures. It is one of those patterns that you just need to have, without thinking about it first! I think it will be perfect for my grandson's room! I'm either going to have it framed or make it into a pillow. So so cute! Love it so much!
