My Custom Cartoon by {Growing Sweet Pea}

I have known Shannon of Growing Sweet Pea for a little while now and just adore her blog and shop
Her Cartoons had me at hello but her wit and personality make me love her that much more. 
Have you seen her work? 
{Lindsey of Paint me a Picture's family drawing}

{Daddy & son on the computer}

{mommy & daughter}

Shannon also draws cartoons in color!

{Mandy of Mandipidy and her husband}

{Isn't Shannon's packaging just darling?!}

As I had been eyeing her work for over 6 months I just had to have one of my own! 
Shannon was so easy to work with!
The process was so easy! 
 I sent her some photos of my little family. 
D, Polo, & I
I also sent Shannon this photo and told her about our love of sports {Go Bucks!}

She was so perceptive and wrote me back immediately and said that she thought it would be fun to draw me in my Ohio State Buckeyes jersey (yes! right on!) and D in his Michigan gear (bleh!) and then of course Polo. I was so excited I could hardly stand the suspense of waiting for the cartoon to get done.

When I received the cartoon I could not stop staring at it. 
It was a reflection of us in cartoon form and so amazing and fun! 
I am still in awe over how perfect it is. 

I am over the moon! So Cute, huh?

Shannon includes a matte with the cartoon and it fits nicely in an 8x10 frame.

Can you see the little details? I love that she included my buckeye necklace and of course my engagement ring! 

When I brought home the picture and showed D, his face lit up. He couldn't believe how perfect it was. 

I wish I was kidding when I say bubs and I are fighting over who gets to "keep" our new picture created by Shannon of Growing Sweet Pea. I want the picture for my new, up and coming craft room. 
Bubs says the picture would look fantastic in his office. 
We are going to have to duke it out. 
For reals.
