Bloggy Giveaway Carnival!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

Howdy! It's time for a giveaway!

Before my son was born, I went on the hunt for cute wall hangings for his room, and couldn't find any I loved, or that I felt were worth the big bucks. So I made some myself! For this giveaway, I'm offering a set just like the ones you see here. These are from the "Alphabet Soup" crib set made by Cocalo (it's amazing what a color copier, paint and Mod Podge can do!), but they'd look great in any baby's or child's room. They're colorful and fun, and every kid loves that!

These are on 8x10 canvases, to give you an idea of their size.

If you'd like a shot at winning your own custom-made set of canvases, just leave a comment here and let me know how I can get in touch with you (your email address or blog address). You do not have to have a blog to win! I'll ship these to the U.S. or Canada only. Since I'll be making these from scratch, please give me at least a week to make sure they're perfect and ready to ship! I'll choose a winner using the random number generator on Saturday, April 26.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR ENTERING!! :)
