A baby shower gift

A friend of mine is having a little girl soon and for her baby shower I wanted to make her something. I have been reading Xazmin's Blog for about a year and really love her Modge Podge Mania Parties that she host monthly. After getting a bottle of modge podge around Christmas time, I thought this was the perfect oppurtunity to use it, so here is my first attempt at Modge Podging.

First I gathered all my materials Modge Podge, a blank picture frame, paint, brushes, stickers and scrapbook paper.

I then painted the back and all of the edges on the frame pink, I did several layers.

After the paint dried, I traced the frame onto the back of the scrapbook paper and cut it out.

I covered the frame with modge podged and placed the scrapbok paper on it and let it dry, i then did several layers on top of the scrapbook paper, I also ended up using a sanding block to make the edges smooth because the paper was too big (any tips on this would be helpful).

After I modge podge the frame I put Faith (the baby's name) on the top and modge podged a few more layers over that, here is my finished project.

By the way everyone loved it and could not believe I had made it.
Be sure to stop by Modge Podge Mania to see more wonderful projects!

It turned out so cute! Thanks for linking up!

Also, I LOVE distressing the edges of my mod podge projects with sand paper, so I think that is perfect!
