SWV Feb Sketch

I have finally gotten around to doing the fabulous sketch challenge Ness posted at Scrap With V for February. I loved it, and decided to use a couple of photos I took in January while our family was on holidays.
To keep with the silhouette style photos at sunset, I used the black and white colour scheme. I am really quite happy with the end result.

I am on a couple of week break from uni, so am trying to catch up on other things in my life. Our local show is on in May, and I am the Pavilion Steward again this year, so I had better start to think about what is required there. I have finished the schedule and sent it to the Show secretary, so it should come out to the public very shortly. I desperately need to have a good clean up in the store room at the pavilion, just trying to get hold of some helpers!!!!

The Kids Have Been Busy.....

The kids have had a busy week with tennis on Monday, swimming squad on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and piano lessons on Thursday. As well as school!! They have slept soundly every night.
Last Friday Megan won a student of the week award for "Your initiative when completing our reading rotation tasks. You follow the timetable well and encourage others to demonstrate the same maturity".
Yesterday Ben won one for "The contributions you make to Shared Reading during Literacy. You are always completely engaged in the story and have demonstrated a very good understanding of the vocabulary in the texts. Well done!". They were both pretty chuffed!

As well as all of this they have done the kids challenges at the SWV Cybercrop.

These are their cards:



These are the layouts they created:



Besides working for 2 days, I have had a busy week finishing off assessment pieces for my uni subjects. For "Academic Literacies" I had to do a 1500 word essay on the 3 most important employability skills in education profession , and for "Northern Perspectives" I had to do a powerpoint presentation on culturally competent policies in my workplace. After I submitted my last piece last night, I slept solidly last night!!! Today I have been busy today catching up on the grocery shopping, house work, and ironing, and then this evening we had a leadership mass for the Yr 7 school leaders, for the kids school. Both Megan and Ben put their hand up to help at the mass, and both got a short reading to do. It is great to see that they are confident enough to get up in front of an audience and public speak. Something that is my worst fear!!

Cybercrop Layouts So Far

All of the challenges at the SWV cybercrop are awesome!!!!!
So far, I have completed 3 of the layout challenges and the card challenge. Still got 2 to go.

My challenge that I set: Had to make a frame for the photo, re-use scrap supplies packaging, use polka dots, incorporate something that flies.

Brigitte's challenge: mostly blue layout, use paint or ink, use something recycled, and have the word Water in the title.

Taryn's Mystery Challenge:

Tina's Card Challenge: use as many brightly coloured ribbons as possible, chipboard, flower and doodling.
