A Sneak Peek And A Giveaway!

Im going to be creating a wall gallery of most of the new photos I took of the kids!
I dont have frames for them all yet, and I have not fully decided on a layout for them either.
However I am beyond excited to finally have NEW photos of the kids and HAD to display the ones that were framed so far. So for now they are on our mantel and looking amazing, if I do say so myself! ;)
So in a way this is just a sneak peek at my soon to be wall photo gallery.

See that awesome print there?
Yeah thats a 20x30 print!
And I LOVE it!
Here is a pulled back view of our fire place to give you an idea of just how big it is!

I keep staring up at our mantel with perm-a-grin! So much so that my cheeks hurt!
I am just tickled by how happy I am with these photos, the print and my canvas prints!!!

Here is a look at the other canvas I got from Easy Canvas Prints.
I'll be posting more about the canvas' in a later post. 
But I must say the quality is amazing, they are PERFECT!

Here are a few angle shots, ignore the dust please. I always forget to dust before taking pictures! 

Photos are 8x10, Canvas is 11x14, print is 20x30. 
I cant wait to fill my bare hallway wall with these!

And here is a quick peek at the other photos I had printed, that will be in the wall gallery. 
They are 8x10 and 5x7 sizes.
I just need to get the frames for them. And like I said decide on the layout of the gallery.
Any suggestions?? Ive been collecting inspiration here.
Ive also been getting inspiration from and will be linking up this post over at Kristen Duke decorating with portraits series!
If you have any links to a great wall gallery for inspiration send it my way! :)

So, did that print catch your eye at all?
Its amazing, isnt it?
I first saw this print on pinterest and FELL IN LOVE.
It was perfect! I loved the words, the color, the size.. everything!
So I had to buy it. Like seriously HAD to or I would regret it!
Its going to be perfect along with the kids photos on my wall gallery.
It already looks amazing with them in this quick set up on my mantel!
Let's all say it together...
YES, YES it DOES! :)
