CanvasPress review/giveaway!

when the folks over at Canvas Press asked me if i'd like to review one of their photo canvas, i immediately said yes! i've been wanting to blow up a picture of alex for-EVER and i've just never gotten around to it.
well here was my chance- and not only a blown up picture, but a blown up picture on an awesome canvas. who would say no? um, noone!

after days of agonizing over which photo to pick (it HAD to be PERFECT afterall! i mean, we're gonna have this forever! "HONEY- HELP ME! this one? no...this one? OMG- THIS ONE!! ...wait- nah, how bout this one?!" and on it went. i think my husband almost left me- but then realized his marrige vows about "in sickness & in health" probably means even if i make myself (and him) sick over which picture = perfection) i finally picked one.

and when a rather large box appeared on my front steps a few days later i could literally feel my fingers itching to tear it open.

well- i think all my agonizing was worth it- because when i opened the package i was greeted with this:

OMG! i LOVED IT! her adorable little face was before me and it was even bigger & better than i'd thought it would be!

when the hubs came home he declared it "awesome" and praised me for picking the right picture- but then his look of joy turned to horror when he realized that i was agonizing again- yes, agonizing over where to hang it?!?!

thankfully it didn't take me long- i looked down our hallway & declared my decorative art hanging "junk" and quickly replaced it with the canvas.

don't you think it's in the perfect spot?

i do! it's right between ours & alex's room so we can't help but see it daily. and the best thing is that when alex see it she goes nuts. she starts laughing, pointing, cooing, talking, bouncing- the works. we'll have to work on her vanity issues later...oy!

so yeah- awesome. perfect. etc etc. i love this canvas.
you want one? i bet you do! well the good folks over at Canvas Press are making that happen for one of my readers! WOO HOO!

you get a 1.5 gallery wrapped 16x20 canvas! you then pick your border:

(image border, mirrored border or colored border- i chose mirror!)- upload your picture & you're done.

(you can check out their Enhancements but don't choose any unless you're willing to pay the diff)

this is a $113.99 value!

We got the most adorable puppy ever and she has pretty much taken over every frame in our entire house! I think a canvas would be a nice blaring "we love our dog" announcement in the living room!

While I would love a canvas print of my beautiful daughter, I think I would actually pick one of the ocean from one of our vacations. While I was going through cancer (twice) for some reason ocean/water pictures really calmed me! Just thinking of being on a beach makes me feel relaxed!
