Photo Finish {GIVEAWAY}

I take a lot of pictures of the girls.  A LOT.  It's gotten to the point where my husband regularly asks if every moment has to be a Kodak one.  Um, yeah!

The problem is that all of the great memories I've captured live on our computer and Facebook but rarely grace the walls or bookcases of our home.  One of my New Year's resolutions (yup, it's that time of year, folks!) is to print our more of our photos to display and enjoy.  And when I found MatSpeaks, I knew it would make keeping that resolution that much easier!

MatSpeaks is a company that produces colorful, fun photo mats made by Cindy, a stay-at-home mom to four girls, which make showing off your favorite photos so so simple.  Many of the designs are customizable so you can choose a color palette that matches your decor or wording that means something to you.  The holiday mats are perfect for all of the pictures you'll be taking over the next few weeks.



And designs like Ribbons and Stripes:


And Foliage:


Would make wonderful holiday gifts!  

The Black & White is just right for displaying pictures of siblings or twins.


Little ladies will look adorable in Doily and Dots.


And Little Sluggers will adore the World Series mat.


Cindy offered to let me pick a mat from MatSpeaks to review for you and I decided to go a little crazy.  I chose the Subtitles design that looks like this on the website.


Wouldn't that be so sweet to give to a grandmother?  But I wanted to put my mat up in the girls' room, so I decided to go with an orange and green color scheme with the words LOVE, BEST FRIENDS and SISTERS in the background and their names in the box.  When it arrived, I couldn't believe how adorable it came out.


Cute, right?  And look at how great it looks with a picture and in a frame.


I love it!  The quality is wonderful and really makes the picture pop, which is why I'm making MatSpeaks one of our HOLIDAY GIFT PICKS.  


Because who doesn't love showing off their photos?  Just be sure to place your order by December 15th to guarantee delivery by Christmas.
