I am basically the marketing director of our SCRIP program. I make weekly flyers for the school's newsletter, and I sell the gift cards at all our school functions. The weekly reminder has made a HUGE impact on our program, increasing our sales $30,000 in one year. So I thought I'd start sharing my flyers, and maybe inspire some fellow SCRIP programs.
The flyer above is for our last newsletter of the school year. I just wanted to remind the families what we have, especially if they are attending any weddings. We also sell something called a Card Cubby that helps organize gift cards, and wanted them to think of giving that as a gift as well.
I use Illustrator for all my artwork. And while I can create and use the program with ease, I'm not a professional. So, to make life easier, I purchased the bride and groom graphic on VectorStock.com for only $1.00! It also came with the beautiful blue background. However, I did make changes to the colors of the bride and groom. Our newsletter gets printed in black and white, and I didn't think the dress and veil was going to show up on the light blue background. But since I also post this on the schools Facebook page, I needed some color. To find the graphic that I used, go to VectorStock.com and search for vector ID 949134 the artist is Olillia and she has some pretty amazing designs.

Today is a quick post. I made an omelette with chives and cheese, on top of a tortilla. Then rolled it all up for an easy breakfast. Right now she's eating it and doesn't even realize there are eggs inside. Success!

|Line up the lettuce, cheese and croutons on one side|
Do you have one of those at home? Mine will not eat hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken nuggets, or pizza. But I'm actually okay with those. I don't have to go get Happy Meals every time she sees the golden arches. It's just an example of what most kids like, and mine refuses to eat. She loves cheese. She loves bread. But we've tried and tried, and cheese pizza is a firm "NO."
So it's time to get creative and maybe a little tricky. For her lunch today, I used Flatout bread I had found at Costco, spread it with a little mayo, then sprinkled a little Ranch dressing seasoning on that. Next time, I might have some actually dressing made and use that instead. Then on one side of the roll-up I put some cut up romaine lettuce some thinly sliced cheddar cheese (I use a potato peeler) and some croutons.
Start rolling up the side that your filling is on, then cut in the middle. I told her that she had a cheese salad in a roll-up. She seemed okay with the idea, especially since croutons were involved. But when I picked her up at noon, she had told the teacher it needed to be heated, then she refused to eat it! I don't blame her, it did not look appetizing after the microwave. Oh well. I do think this will work, as long as it stays a "cold" sandwich. I'l be giving it a try again soon.
