Do you have summer pictures on your camera ready to share? I have tons! Remember last month when I shared details of HP Summer Photo Fun campaign with you. Well, this past week I was able to finally get some shots of my kids, decide on which canvas we wanted, and then get them on my wall.

Dressing Up Walls with Framed Pictures

I am not a fan of bare walls. I simply do not like them. I believe that each wall absolutely must have something on it. Dressing up walls with framed pictures is my absolute favorite way to go. I have pictures of my kids on almost every wall. I enjoy watching them grow and recalling the memories. But, one thing Colby and I have always wanted but never bought ourselves was a canvas photo.

When we initially thought about getting a canvas, we wanted one to go over our mantle. We needed a nice, large sized one that could replace the Thomas Kinkade that has hung there for years. We also decided we wanted a new picture of our kids. Our teens are often busy and do not get into our little photo shoots with the girls, so we had no recent pictures of them. Therefore, we grabbed them one day after church and went to one of our favorite local parks. Grabbed a few quick shots and picked our favorites from that shoot.

We ended up with several great selections and picked the one we wanted to turn into a canvas. We could not get the large size we wanted because the resolution was a bit too small for ideal quality. Plus, with the close shot of the 5 of them together, some of the canvas wrapped options would not work because 2 of our daughters would have lost an eye. Ha! Yet we still found the perfect canvas for our wall.

In fact, I think it is incredible. Plus, it even came framed. By adding additional framed prints from over the summer, a collage canvas, and a couple of picture shelves… our wall turned out fabulous!

After seeing this canvas, we are going to go ahead and order an 11×14 of each child, one of Colby and I, and find another wall we can create a canvas collage on. I cannot wait to see how it turns out. The best part? As soon as we get the pictures, Walmart can have the canvas ready to pick up the same day! No waiting! Pick out your pictures, upload them to, make your canvas selections, and pick up your canvas in approximately 4 hours!
