photo design project: back to school bag tags

Time for another fun and inspiring do-it-yourself project from Ashley Campbell. Enjoy... This time of the year traditionally marks the beginning of school and getting back into more scheduled days. With school supplies gathered and sharpie in hand, I started labeling all the little possessions headed to school with my kids. The teachers always appreciate a clearly labeled backpack, but it is hard to find tags that are fun and durable. This year I choose to use the Artful Thoughts for Dry Erase Memo Boards product to create personalized tags my kids would love and their teachers would appreciate. Supplies: glossy photo paper access to a laminating machine hole punch ribbon or string I reduced the size and cropped the "Take A Memo" and "Messages" products to create my tags. After I created 8.5x11 documents to hold several tags on one sheet, I printed my tags at home with photo paper. Next, I trimmed the tags and laminated each one. Most office supply stores, printing stores and teacher resource stores have laminating services. It cost me less than $.10 each for laminating. Finally, I punched a hole in each tag and attached them to backpacks using ribbon and twine. While I was creating tags I also printed a few of the chore charts and laminated those, as well. Now I am organized and ready for school to be underway!

Isle of Skye, Scotland has always been on my bucket list so I was pretty excited when I booked a beautiful elopement there. I headed north from Glasgow to visit a few places on my way to Isle of Skye. It amazes me how much the landscape changes as soon as you head out of the cities of Scotland. It doesn’t take long before you find yourself driving through mythical forests, highland, mountains, valley and the beautiful lochs. Within a few hours I felt that I was in the scene of Outlander!
