MDS Blog Hop - Summer Fun!

Heather's theme for this week was Summer Fun! For me this summer, summer fun has meant helping plan our 20-year high school class reunion (UGH, did I just reveal my age?) I said I'd do the name badges, and of course I did them with MDS2.

Our mascot was the "Tygers" (yes, it had a Y, no typo there!) and our colors were brown and orange so I started out with a little Crumb Cake paper from the Downtown Grunge kit. I added a simple, small orange ribbon across the bottom then imported the tyger paw .PNG file with the background stripped out. I added their yearbook photo, then their name in Chocolate Chip. Because of the size I did three to an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet, printed them, trimmed them and laminated them. I'm still going to punch a hole in the top with my Crop-a-dile and add a lanyard to it, just haven't gotten that far. I did on mine though to test it out - would you like to see (and laugh a little?)

OK, here I am in all of my 18-year-old dorky glory. Did you recognize me without the glasses? So that's what I'll be doing this weekend - dredging up old memories and seeing old friends. What will you be doing this weekend to make the most out of the last days of summer? Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out what the other blog hoppers have in store for you today!

Too funny!! We just had a lengthy conversation about reunions & NAMETAGS at my house this past weekend. Did you scan the yearbook to get the pictures?

how cute! I love the idea of including pictures on the name tag. The last time I went to a reunion I couldn't remember anyone!

What a great idea and great time saver.

Aurora, yes I scanned the pages of the yearbook for the photos. If you don't have a scanner you could just take it to your local copy place and get color copies of them, cut them out and adhere them to the already printed name badge. :)
