LOVE THIS!!!! What kind of wood did you use, where did you get your blocks and what size are they? Sorry for the 20 questions but I can't seem to find blocks of a decent size or square posts that aren't treated. I want to do some of these!!! TFS!!

My friend bought a fencepost at Lowe's and had her DH saw them into blocks. They are 3 1/4" blocks. I'm not 100% about whether it was treated wood or not since I'm not the one that bought it......Hmmmm!?!?!? BUT.....I'm not *that* worried about it since the Mod Podge is a sealer and an adhesive, so I think it should be OK. I adhered a piece of stamped cardstock to the wood with the Mod Podge and then my pictures are matted or partially matted with another piece of cardstock....so there are some "barriers" between my picture and the wood (if it IS treated). I don't consider this to be an "archival" project that will stand the test of time like a layout would in an album....cause you also don't have anything protecting your pictures on the front....but it is a cute and FUN project to make!!!
