Recent WR purchase (total AW moment)

So ladies, I saw these awesome canvas pieces on etsy.com and I *had* to have one.    This artist (Geezees... http://www.etsy.com/listing/84215917/your-photo-to-canvas-art-personalized?ref=v1_other_2) will take your wedding photo (or any photo for that matter) and add song lyrics, your vows or anything you want.  I ordered mine a few weeks ago and after a few proofs back and forth, we settled on this...




isn't it gorgeous?!?!? 

It is one of our favorite (and most colorful, by far) pics from the wedding and the words are the vows we had written, but never got to say because of the Catholic church rules.  The print itself was a little priecy (we got a HUGE one... 30x40 I think, but can't remember).  I LOVE the proof and just can't wait to get the finished product.  I will definitely post pics once it comes in and I get it hung.

    Go to <a href="http://www.etsy.com" rel='nofollow'>www.etsy.com</a> right away.  Do not pass go.  Do not collect $200.  It is an amazing website and has tons of gorgeous handmade wedding things on it!

    Monica, saw this on FB and looked at it online -- gorgeous!!  Are you still thinking about getting a drawing of your dress?  I'm thinking about that esp if I try and sell mine.

    So pretty! I was thinking of having something like that done, but I have to wait until we get our pictures to see if there is one I like enough to have it done to. Your pic is perfect for something like that, it looks like it was taken just for that canvas!

    Thanks everyone!!!  I am super excited to get it!!!  I am thinking about ordering a few more (for parents, fath/daughter dance, random "wine" themed bus scrolls... I am out of control).  might have found a new addiction.  Lol

    Sarah- I am definitely still getting the dress pic done.  I hinted at it to DH for my birthday... and if he doesn't come through with it I might just have to consider it a present for myself.  <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" />

    Good idea!  My birthday is right around when I'd probably be ready to do something like that....
