Canvas Press review and GIVEAWAY!

I have the most FABULOUS giveaway and discount code for you all!!

The people from Canvas Press are eager for everyone to see their beautiful products. They contacted me and, after picking a picture, I quickly received a 16x20" canvas of my choice of photo. My choice (our wedding day) was converted from a digital image into the beautiful, gallery-worthy canvas you see below.(dark coloration is the fault of my camera taking a picture of a picture, not the print!)

I had to think long and hard about the picture I wanted to make into a big shot for our family's home. Initially, I thought that a picture of my children would be the best. But which one? And when I really started to think about it, I realized that we had NO pictures from our wedding larger than a 4x7. (long story about a photographer who changed locations and then didn't develop pictures anymore and, well, we never got any pictures past the proofs that belonged to us... So this was NOT a copyright infringement! Trust me.) I selected the above photo with a black border for the gallery wrap and intend on hanging it above our bed. It will be STUNNING. I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out and positively weepy that we finally have a beautiful piece of art from our wedding day. Thank you to Canvas Press! This will be treasured by my family for generations.

One lucky reader will be able to receive an identical canvas for their own home! (identical size and style. Not an identical photo. Though, if you really want a 16x20 canvas of me and Patrick on our wedding day, well, you are welcome to it...)*

;)

And ALL of you are able to use this code to receive a 15% discount off of your purchase at Canvas Press until Sunday, May 16th (ends Midnight). The code to be used at checkout is mamasays15

  1. Gorgeous! You picked a perfect picture. I would choose this great shot of my kids - we just had their pictures done - and there's ONE out of like EIGHTY where they're both smiling and looking at the camera and not making alien faces. It would be lovely.

    I'm already a subscriber...off to tweet!

  2. Beautiful bride! Since it would be kind of creepy to have a picture of your wedding, I'd use it for a canvas of your cat. I kid, I kid. And I'd use it for my kids. I think I have four these days.
