Ok, I am OCD about separating laundry.  I have a hamper for different types of clothes, ie...darks, whites, lights, jeans, towels...etc.  Yes, go ahead and say it...OCD!!!!

With this in mind, I re-purposed some plastic auto tags (yes, I got them from the thrift store) into signs for each hamper.  I am still working on them but wanted to enter at least one of them in the tic tac toe challenge so here is the one I made for the "whites" hamper....

I used the bottom row of the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board to create my project.  I used the Cricut Imagin Best friends cartridge for the laundry paper.  I used the Mickey font cartridge for the word "whites".  I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Polka Dots to emboss the word white.  I used the Tinkerbell cartridge to add some "sun"flowers.  I love those sunflowers so had to use them in this project as well as my previous project. 

Here is a close up of the word so that you can see the embossing...

It's kinda hard to see but it is embossed with polka dots.  Here is a picture of the sign attached to the "whites" hamper....

My husband and kids think I am crazy but, I think this will help as long as they READ the signs and put the proper clothes in the proper hampers.  I hate sorting laundry so, hopefully this will make it easier for all of us.
Thanks for looking and good luck to all those fantastic entries!!  I would sooo love to win an E2.
