One of my internet friends did this project from Pinterest and I loved the results, so I decided to give it a shot since I had some free time this weekend...
Shockingly easy (though now I have 3/4 of a medium bottle of Mod Podge left - I didn't know how much I'd need - and might need to find more things to slick it over).
I ordered prints through Snapfish, since they a) have pick up at Walgreens b) will print bigger than 4x6 and c) I could have them same-day (mail order is cheaper, but even the 8x10s were only $2.99).
So here goes...

The two with the small prints were hard. What to do with the edges?? (see the drying one above? The edges didn't "fade" into the scrapbook paper like I was kind of hoping. Seems Mod Podge doesn't melt things). I played around with some acrylic paint I had leftover from the nursery (more on that later). This proved to me I am a crappy painter. I wiped it off so many times I wet through the Mod Podge on this one and had to recoat the bottom. In the end, I think it came out ok, but its a little too....crafty? for me.
