LINK TITLE





Remember how I told you that we had family pictures taken last month? 

I did something this year that I've never done before.

Wanna see?



Yes, that is what you think it is.  A Canvas Wrapped Print.   Isn't it fantastic? I'm SO excited.  And the best news?  Color Incorporated, the company where I got the print has offered to give you a 16X20 canvas wrapped print, too.  For more information, go here.

Great idea!

Shell said...

What a great shot! How many tries did it take to get a pic where everyone looked good? Getting a family pic with just my 3 boys is hard enough!

I'll be back in the morning to link up!

latree said...

your family's pictures are always great...

I had my family picture of five of us.
but I think soon I'll have to have another one, six of us.
*mmm... five months to go, hopefully :)*

Stopping by to say Happy Holidays! The portrait is just picture perfect, I like the wrapped canvas as well.

girlytwins said...

Love it! I just talked to Tony about ordering one of our family, so funny. Your family is so gorgeous.

Jen said...

I just realized that I am so bad here. I made a post, linked it up and I have been spreading the comment love but I forgot to comment on the post important post of all, yours! I am sorry.

I love that photo and ever more I love the canvas wrap. I would love to have something like that in my home. Of course, I would have to get a family photo first.

Mama Badger said...

See, because your family takes a nice enough photo to merit a canvas wrapped print! Beautiful. (do they come with a warning that not all of them come out that well?)

Whimsical Creations said...

That turned out beautiful!

CallanNMasonsMama said...

That's a great photo!

Oysterblogger said...

awesome I have wanted to do some canvas wrapped prints but everywhere I looked they were priced ridiculously...heading over...happy holidays and merry Christmas and all that. Thanks for being such a great force in mom blogs. And a great cyber friend!

Radar's Mom said...

Thanks for the tip on Color Inc... I've gotten other wrapped canvases and I love them, but none have been of the quality that yours seems to be... beautiful!!!

Nicole said...

OMG what a totally cool idea!!! I love it and your family portrait turned out perfect.

Night Owl Mama said...

OOOPS I SO applogize some how I commented on your giveaway post

I love your family canvas photo I have one of the kids and I adore it.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Beautiful picture!!

Jenn Erickson said...

The canvas wrapped print is gorgeous! You have such a lovely family!

Jenners said...

I love it! I was thinking of doing this for my mom ... it makes it seem so much more "permanent." You guys look so wonderful and happy and cute! You really do have a lovely family!

Mayhem and Moxie said...

I was kinda bummed when I read this post.

I mean, don't you think a pic of your blog friends in Vegas would look much better on stretched canvas?

Not to worry though, Angie. I've got you covered. When my canvas time rolls around, I'll have this made up for you.

Thinking it would look perfect in your bathroom.

VE said...

Gosh...I so wanted to be 141st on the linky list but I'll opt for 83rd in the comments...
