Hybrid Challenge - Tag!

This week's challenge at is a hybrid challenge.  I don't usually work in hybrid -- I'm either traditional or digi on any given project, so these really are a challenge for me.  (Part of my challenge is the tendency to stop midway through a project...I have several hybrid projects that are ready to be printed, but never get further.)  The challenge was to create a digi tag, print it, and use it.  Not wanting to pull out my traditional supplies to create a layout, and not having any pictures to put on said layout, I started thinking about other ways I could use a tag.

I realized we are getting ready to start the last week of school and I didn't have anything for my daughter's teachers.  Enter the challenge!  I created a digital canvas on which I put together the label and lid for this can.  I printed the label without the Thanks tag, then printed the tag and the lid, cut each piece out, used my handy Xyron sticker-maker (plus a few pop-dots) and put the whole thing together.  I wanted to do a summer reading theme, but didn't have time to make my own word art, and couldn't find any that had reading as the subject, so switched to a generic thank you. 

Now all I have to do is pick up a Barnes & Noble gift card tomorrow while I am doing the grocery shopping and we are all set!
