I liked the illustrations from a kids' book called "Ten Little Ladybugs," so I decided to paint them on my daughter's walls. 
Since my daughter is a toddler (she'll be 3 next week), and I work, it took me a year and a half to paint all of it.  On to pics!

butterfly, probably my favorite

frog, fish, duck, and there's a turtle not pictured

this bee is in the entryway, on the short wall across from the frog

caterpillar, bird

butterfly again, and grasshopper

I made a walk-through video, since it's hard to take pictures inside rooms without a wide-angle lens:
