Look What I Found!

I got ahold of Mommy's laptop the other day and was looking around at some of the new things on Etsy and I came across something I had to share... Our friend Edi from Memories for Life Scrapbooks is now making custom engraved portraits on wood like this one of her cute little boy Harley... I thought it was so cute I asked Edi if it was okay to offer a custom 5x7 engraved photo to one of our blog furiends and you know what she said? She said YES! Isn't that exciting? I'll give you the details later but first I'll show you some personal experience we have with Edi's engraving. Mommy sent Edi a photo of her cousin's dog Tink...
And she made this engraved pendant...
Pretty cool huh? I'm thinking she needs some kitty engravings though don't you? I happen to know of a kitty who'd love to be a model! Anyway, to win your own custom 5x7 pet portrait made by Edi, just let us know in your comment. The giveaway will run through next Wednesday, August 31st, and we'll announce the winner next Thursday. This giveaway is open worldwide! Good luck!

Be sure to check out Edi's shop for fabulous custom albums and other engraved goodies. We promise you won't be disappointed plus Edi has generously given our readers 10% off anything in her shop with the code BTROCKS! Thanks Edi!

Enjoy your Thursday!
Isabella

We would SO WANT TO WIN a custom 5x7 pet portrait by Edi.

We think she captured Tink perfectly in the engraved pendant! Absolutely beautiful work.

And yes, Isabella, we think she needs to do some kitty engravings starting with you! :)

That engraving is so amazing! I would LOVE to model for a picture like that. I think my floof would come out very nicely. Though all of you, including Sadie, would look awesome!

They do have a shelter but they never use it.

That is really cool. But seeing as some silly Momster still hasn't ordered our other win from your giveaway, we won't enter this one. Very cool idea, though.

It would be so difficult to choose which of my fur babies to immortalize in this way - my first, Max the Siamese or Zuzu my shy little beauty or Boo the Siamese who loved my husband beyond all human comprehension - Zekey my sad old man or Miss Frankie of the beautiful face or BB, the orange cat - Oops and I almost forgot Fatman - well, if I win then I'll decide...

Pricilla said...
