YOU ARE Bulletin Board -- Follow-Up

I've been asked by many to show a photo of the finished product of my YOU ARE bulletin board hanging in my school hallway. Here it is!! Clean, simple, and refreshing...I think! 

While I was hanging it up, it sparked a conversation with a staff member who was enjoying the positive message. It got me to thinking - if someone is having a difficult day (students or staff, etc.) then maybe one glimpse at this board will remind that person what a gift he/she is and lift his/her spirits. Never know....

Another quick tip...find a local printer who will print out your projects for you at a minimal cost. I have a wonderful printer down the street who allows me to email my files to them, I tell them the size and paper for each piece, they print the document for me in color or b&w, and I swing by and pick up the order (and pay for it of course). So, when I sent this project to be printed I asked for the YOU and ARE pages to be printed on 11x14 gloss stock, one side full color and the rest of the pages in the file on 8.5x11 gloss stock, one side full color. The bigger YOU ARE signs made that stand out and the gloss stock prevented me from having to laminate everything (it's shiny). I find it way cheaper than using my printer's color ink for projects like this!!

YOU ARE...Bulletin Board

It was hard for me to believe that my free downloadable BE YOURSELF bulletin board was such a huge hit with all of you. Something so simple, but so well liked. Many of you commented how you appreciated that it was ready to go - print and display! So, I thought it was time for a BE YOURSELF follow-up bulletin board that is perfect for the start of a new school year.  

YOU a much more subdued bulletin board that my past work of bright colors. The title words have a "beachy" feel. The sayings are all in black and are "written" on graphic school paper backgrounds. I thought this would like like they were handwritten with a felt-tip marker or a pencil. There are two sheets for the title words and then 9 pages of positive thoughts/sayings (20 sayings in all) in this particular document.

YOU ARE... is available for a nominal fee by clicking here -- just download, print and display on your school bulletin board. The sayings are perfect for "back-to-school" and to give passers-by a pick-me-up upon reading. 

I hope you all will enjoy this document too and will make your life a bit easier as you get your spaces ready for back-to-school!
