Canvas On The Cheap

Hey neighbors!!! We have a really super review and giveaway today!   Canvas On The Cheap is of course a place where you can get your favorite pictures made into a beautiful canvas for display.  Some of you may know that our first grandson was born in December, so I chose one of our favorite photos to use for this project.  There is just something about this photo!

I received a tracking number, and all I had to do was wait for it to arri
