Mother's Day Gifts - Altered Memory Games

I found the idea for these Memory games on the Cricut MB which in turn was found on one of new favorite sites to surf - the My Mind's Eye blog. This wonderful idea came from designer Amber Packer and the instructions can be found here.

I will say that when I first started this project I became easily frustrated because I had never used Mod Podge before.  My pictures weren't lying flat and they were drying with bubbles and streaks.  Truth be told, it wasn't until I was almost done with the second game set that I finally got the hang of it and everything started drying streak free.

Thank goodness that neither mom is going to care about the streaks......

Bottom line, no Cricut was used - just good ol' cardstock and pre-designed chipboard letters.  The pictures for each playing piece measured 1.75" x 1.5" so I was able to layout approximately 20 pictures (or 10 sets) to one 8.5" x 11" sheet of photo paper.
