School Planner Up-do

We all know how important organization is for success.  I am very strict on Monkey about keeping track of her assignments in a calendar so that she can be more successful in keeping track of her work.  I am also, as we all know and to my Monkey’s total aggravation, a cheapskate!!!  (We decided on frugal, didn’t we?  That’s right, I’m FRUGAL!!!)  SO, at Dollar Tree, they have planners for $1.  I live out of mine!  She really wanted one of the pretty ones, but they cost way too much, so I decided to personalize hers on my own!  So, I put her name on it and used my Xyron Sticker Maker to stick it on, then covered it in contact paper.  Unfortunately, my contact paper got bent up, so it has a few creases.  I’m going to just pretend it was decorative!!!  LOL.  Here is the project!


Please excuse the black spot, my camera or lens or something has began to hate me, so it left a lovely little dot.  🙁  


On the outside of the contact paper, I put various stickers (all with a common theme).
