CSI Mod Podge Challenge

One of my favorite projects of past was the Ballard inspired French document.  The CSI Project  is having a Mod Podge challenge and I have added this project to the competition.   Amy from  Mod Podge Rocks  is the guest judge this week and you have to check out all the great projects she does with Mod Podge.

This was my inspiration for the project.


My project cost $422.75 less than the original!   You can see how I made this along with a cost breakdown here.


I love how it turned out!


Thanks to The CSI Project for hosting this competition. Please drop by to see all the creative projects using
Mod Podge.

Hugs, Sherry

I'll be joining the parties at:

I honestly kept scrolling and looking for your project. I thought your project was done by Ballard. No kidding, it is better than the inspiration piece.
I would pay big $$$ to have this. Beautiful and interesting!!!! I LOVE IT! Kudos to you, my friend!!!!
Thanks for the instuctions... I'm off to see them now. I jst might have to copy this. You know what they say, imitation is the best form of flattery!
Thanks!

Hi Sherry,
I'm so excited to learn how you did this! It's beautiful and prettier than Ballards. They do have a wonderful script fabric that I've been thinking about but it's priced reasonably.

I'm going to look at your tutorial.

hugs

I meant to leave a comment about this when I was here a couple of days ago. This is STUNNING! I have marked it so I can come back to it. I am going to try my best to do this. I think I will also do a letter I have that is from my grandmother to her mother and it is about my father. She even traced his little hand. Thank you so much for sharing all that you do.

Joyfully,
Elizabeth Ann
