MommyB Knows Best Birthday Bash - Artsy Canvas Girl Giveaway

Happy Monday!  Starting the week off with a giveaway!

I have partnered up with Jennifer over at MommyB Knows Best.  She will be introducing you to some great party ideas every day for the month of May as part of her Month of May Birthday Bash. In honor of the first day of the Birthday Bash, Artsy Canvas Girl (that's me) would like to give one lucky MommyB Knows Best reader a portrait (12×12 or 11×14 format) professionally printed with a choice of glossy, lustre or metallic finish mounted on mat board ready to frame. (retail value $49.95).  To enter, head on over to MommyB Knows Best for all the details.

Recently, I befriended Jennifer at MommyB Knows Best via twitter -- a really fun and great way to meet the most interesting people.  Jennifer is doing a birthday party for her youngest daughter who is turning one and asked if I could help with a photo banner.  What a darling idea!  Her inspiration came from this photo...

Jennifer had decided on a party theme -- a cute little owl theme done in chocolate brown, hot pink and polka dots!  Kudos to Rachel at HET Designs.

Next, Jennifer sent me a dozen or more photos of her darling daughter (photos taken through the first year -- all so very sweet).  I went to work creating some frame designs that would compliment her party theme.  Then I began editing her photos to make them look festive and nostalgic.  Here are a few of my favorites!  We completed 12 in all.  I had these printed as 5x5 photo cards that can be whole-punched and linked together with ribbon.  Here are a few of the before and after results...

MommyB Knows Best is a family friendly website that features fun tips and tricks for parents, fresh segments you won't see on other websites, honest in-depth product reviews, and great giveaways.
Jennifer, I really enjoyed working with you on this project.  Hope the birthday bash was a blast! xoxo

Good luck everyone!

Love and gratitude!
