Shhh, It’s a Surprise Present & A Fabulous Giveaway

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway from Canvas Photo Company!  Chosen via a Random Number Generator, the winner is Diane.  I’ll be contacting Diane at the email she entered with her comment.    Thanks again to Canvas Photo Company for Sponsoring this wonderful giveaway!


A few months ago my son, Chip, married his beautiful sweetheart, Nancy in a ceremony held inside the historic Chapel at the University of Georgia.  They chose the Chapel at UGA since they met there as undergraduate students.

Recently BNOTP welcomed a new Sponsor, Canvas Photo Company!  Lisa, the proprietor, sweetly offered to create a 16 x 20 canvas wrap of any photo of my choosing.  I knew immediately I wanted it to be a photo from the wedding.

The print arrived yesterday, and it’s perfect!  It will be a surprise Christmas present for Chip and Nancy…shhh, don’t tell them.   I placed it on the wall in the upstairs family room to snap a pic for this post.  It’s so dark and gloomy out, it just didn’t do it justice.

So, I took it downstairs out onto the porch so you could get a bit better view of how beautifully it came out.  The colors are so true to the original.  Nancy and Chip are going to love it, that is if I can part with it!

Canvas Photo Company can design your canvas print on a thick of thin frame, depending on if you wish to have the print framed or hang it without a frame.  Either way is beautiful.

If you want to get creative with your photo, there are lots of “color options” to choose from when ordering.  Nancy and Chip’s print was done in “Original Image” format.  Wouldn’t the “Isolated Color” option be great, too?!


When visiting Canvas Photo Company online, you’ll find an Idea Gallery showing different styles and ways to display your canvas prints.  


 Pssst:  There’s a fall sale going on right now.  Take 20% off your entire order with the code: Fall20


Canvas Photo Company uses Museum Grade Canvas and offers several types of image enhancements.  I think this one was done with the “isolate color” option.  Love how the chairs just pop against the background.

If I should be the lucky winner of the giveaway, I would have a picture of my son and his family taken on the beach this summer done in the Original Image option, too. While I love the “Isolate Color” choice, everyone was wearing white and light colors, so it probably would not make much of an impact. Thanks so much for this wonderful opportunity.

  27. I love canvas photo prints! I only have one but over time, I can see me covering my walls with them. I would chose the color pop option for a print of the kids I think.

  48. Yvonne Ester says

    I would choose the oil painting for my cute little grandson’s. Thanks for this special giveaway.

  49. I would stay with the original color – or maybe the color pop – and thank you for the opportunity!

  50. I’d choose vintage. And I’d use it for a photo of my two dogs, Riley and Scout. Riley passed away August 20th and I have a photo I took of them that is my favorite. I’d love to have it made into a canvas. Thanks, Susan.

  51. I love the vintage look. I would go with that.

  63. I really liked them on Facebook!

  64. Posting about this giveaway on my Facebook!
    Great giveaway!

  65. Faye Moseley says

    I luvvvvve the vintage effect….Just awesome! Your children are going to have a fabulous Christmas!

  66. What a nice giveaway! My daughter celebrated her 1st anniversary on 10/1 and her photographer left her with no formal portrait or wedding album! That’s another story on another day but I would use the giveaway to present them with a formal portrait!

  67. Jennifer B says

    I think it would be fun to try the Color Pop

  68. Susan, your son and his wife will absolutely love the photo canvas. I understand completely how difficult it will be to part with the picture. Thank you for offering this giveaway. Being a traditionalist, I would pick the original image option. Thanks again, Marie

  69. That’s such a nice picture and gift, Susan! Wow, what a hard decision! The original would of course be great for an outdoor fall family picture, or the isolate color would be awesome with a picture of my boys, aaaaand the oil painting sure would class up a picture… See why my blog has “fickle” in it?! If I get this, I’d probably get a second one anyway 🙂

  70. Ellen in Oregon says

    I”m really surprised that a traditional girl, like me, really liked the Pop Art option. I really can see some of my bird photographs or autumn leaves looking fab with this graphic look. Sometimes you gota change things up. This company has more options that most canvas transfer companies, so I might have to start my Christmas shopping and grab that extra 10% coupon. I think I could find something everyone would love getting and do all my shopping in one place without ever getting in a car or going to a mall – Yeah!

  71. What an excellent giveaway! I’ve actually been wanting one of these for our house! I’d stick to original for one of our favorite wedding prints! 🙂

  72. I would love to use this for my grandsons photo from this summer at the beach. I’d probably go vintage, but they are all beautiful. Hoping to win!

  73. I’m now following canvas photo on Facebook.

  74. I have subscribed to the newsletter for canvas photo.

  75. You are too generous, I’d be keeping that pic for myself and willing it to them. 🙂 lol

  76. Love the color options and what a great giveaway! A fabulous photo of my little grandson at the beach last summer with his rosy cheeks and windswept hair would look great in Original Image or Color Pop.

  77. What a beautiful gallery wrap of your son’s wedding, Susan–I love her red bouquet!

  78. What a beautiful photo gift, Susan! I’m sure your son and daughter in law will be over the moon when they see it. I’ve been to the site and would choose Vintage if I win the giveaway…. and I would use it on a picture of my grandchildren. Thank you for making it possible! (And good luck letting go of that photo! hahahaha)

  79. Rhonda Anthony says

    Vintage is a nice touch but I’d really have to choose the photo first to choose the color. Thanks for the giveaway.

  80. Alyce Booth says

    I would stick with original image of my dauther’s wedding.

  81. Alyce Booth says

    I liked them on FB

  82. Edith Bice says

    That is a wonderful Christmas gift and a beautiful photo. I love the original in that particular print. I have one picture that would look great in the isolated color but a beautiful fall picture of my grand kids in a pumpkin patch would look good in original capturing all the colors of fall. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  83. Alyce Booth says

    I signed up for newsletter.

  84. Thanks for this chance to win one of these canvases! If I won I would let my daughter who is a graphic design major /photography minor choose her finish to compliment one of her own photographs!

  85. Shanna Gilbert says

    I would choose the vintage!

  86. Love these and all the options but I would probably go with the original. I love the photo you chose. What a beautiful gift!

  87. I would love to win this giveaway. I know which picture I would use. I think I would like the oil painting with the standard wrap. Please put my name in the hat.

  95. Love it and have a new family photo that would be beautiful!

  96. Hi Susan! This give-away is such a fun idea! I have a canvas photo of our two sons taken outside on a beautiful Fall day. I would like to have one made for wonderful friends of ours who recently had to relocate from NJ to Boston. The day before they moved I took a lovely picture of their family of 5 outside their NJ home. They used that picture for the cover of their thank you cards. Wouldn’t that be the best housewarming gift ever? Plus a reminder of their home here and all the wonderful memories they took with them. I always stick with the “original”. You can’t loose with that one! Have a wonderful day, and again, thank you for the beautiful job you do with this blog. I tell everyone about it!

  97. Hi- I subscribed to newsletter, and like on Facebook!!

  98. Hi – I liked on Facebook, and subscribed to newsletter- I would choose the Black and White!!

  100. What a lovely gift idea! I would go with original image or oil painting.

  101. Cindy Jones says

  103. I enjoy reading your blog. I also like the canvas prints. I have a photo I took while traveling and would like to have it made with the wrap using the oil painting finish.

  104. What a great gift! I think I would go with the Vintage option!

  105. Janice Davis says

    Susan, you have no idea how happy it would make me to win a beautiful canvas creation. I’m not very lucky when it comes to give-a-ways but, of course, I would have no chance at all if I didn’t enter. So I’m doing that right now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!!!! Please enter my name in the pot. Love your blog, and love, love, love the canvas art…Warmly, Jan
