Along the same concept that you're describing...It reminds me of a setup that Randy Fair showed me at the LBA convention in Bossier.  I don't remember the details of it, but it's a sheet of metal mounted to the hive or Nuc with rows and columns labeled for different task and/or observations. I want to say there was even a calendar or something to mark a date.  Anyway, he had little square magnets that he would move to the appropriate location to mark the results of his last inspection.  It was pretty neat!

Wanted to follow up on this, I contacted Randy and he was nice enough to share a photo and some details of his system.  The document is done with a table in Microsoft Word, four to a page.  He prints them on labels and sticks them to the metal plate attached to the Hive/Nuc and marks his observations with the little magnets.
