Hand Drawn Family Photo & Frame {Giveaway}

Last week you may have seen where I spent some time updating my entry way with a fun new end table and some decor. Today I’m sharing with you my FAVORITE part of my mini-makeover with this awesome hand drawn family photo and frame that is now hanging above my table. The drawing is from the talented Design by Marlies, where she takes your family photo and transfers it into a hand drawn masterpiece.

I contacted Marlies and she had me send in the photo of my choice. Obviously, my photo cut my son off at the waist, but I told her what color pants he had on and my pink shoes and she added on the rest. I really had wanted the pink bow my daughter was wearing for her party in the photo, but she wouldn’t keep it on, so Marlies added that to it too. It took just a few days and she sent me the 8×10 PDF of my photo.

From there, I ordered an 8×10 Double Layer Grace Oval frame from Cut It Out frames and I painted it navy and white and put our family photo artwork into it.

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and already we’ve gotten many compliments and friends and family asking where we got our print and frame from. It’s right next to the front door, so it’s a true one of a kind statement piece that all our guests see entering and leaving!

It coordinates nicely with our new entry way table too and really pops against our tan wall!

    First off I better get a family picture. We haven’t taken one of the whole family since our new addition arrived 7 months ago. There are 6 of us now. Mom, dad, two girls and two boys!

  2. Mackenzie Welker says

    I would choose the Preston Double frame and probably a family photo to go in it if I win. So cool and so fun! Thanks!

  3. Joann says

    I would choose a picture of me and my daughter. Maybe let the cat join. Definitely think i would have to take the picture as I can think of one that already exist. How fun would that be though?!?

  4. krissy says

    Her drawings are amazing!! I have a pic of our 5 kids that would be pretty awesome drawn but I am not sure I would want to miss out being in the picture myself. Lol

  5. Tarra says

    I’m in love with the Balboa frame! I’d pick that one, but it was quite the toss up between it and the Newport! Both are so cute!

  6. Tarra says

    I have a little one due in 3 weeks! I need a updated family picture. I’d love to have one of these to hang. However, I think having one of just me and the Mr. in our room would be adorable.

  7. Kelsey W says

    love this so much! as much as I would want I do a picture with my girls in it, it would get outdated when we had another, so I would do one of me and my husband! :) I would also do the same frame as yours, but paint it black and white!! ❤️❤️❤️

  8. Ashley R. says

    We took a cute picture in front of our front door, but the lighting was all off and never got it edited enough to print. So I’d have her draw that one.

  9. Dezi A says

    I have a picture of our family from a few years ago that was always been my favorite so I’d probably do that.

  10. Julie says

    I would choose a photo of my hubby and our kids: three dogs and a cat…its hard to get everyone looking in a picture, but she could “fix” that! :)

  11. Carla says

    I would choose the double layer chandler. As for the photo, I would do a family portrait. I have a new baby that needs to be added to our family pictures. :) Thank you for this giveaway!!!

  12. Nicole key says

    I would choose the double layer frame, and have my family portrait drawn :) I would absolutely love it!!!

  13. Ashley Hardy says

    I would pick the Newport double layer frame! And a family picture of my two kids, hubby and me with my baby bump!
