Over the last couple of days I have completed 30 - 6x6 layouts for the Southern Cross Kids Camp.
Julie Stone is calling on kind-hearted scrappers to create the simplest, most basic 6" x 6" (Photo size is 5" x 3.5") background LO's for the kids at SCKC. In total they need about 1600 layouts for the kids' books, so every one that you can donate will be a huge help ! Not only is this for a great cause, but it will help you use up your scraps and not-so-new supplies (which means you can then go and buy some lovely new stuff !)...so get scrapping!!
I have been speaking to Julie today and she is amazed at everyone enthusiam. I have also been speaking to friends in NZ and they are busily making pages too. If you look at Julies blog, Cindy's pages are shown.
I also found out that I am still on Survivor Island - there are only 20 left from the orginal 47. We have a sketch challenge this time.
I have had some great news this week about Rebecca - my 16yo. She is in Year 11 this year doing a nice light course of English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths Methods and Year 12 Further maths. This is on top of her skating training 5 days a week (she will be skating in her team and as an individual at Nationals in Perth this year), and having a weekend job.
Bec has been nominated for a Women in Leadership course - to be held in Sydney for a week in April. We thought that was a big thing until she came home later in the week with a place in Monash Universities High Achiever program and an application to undertake a 6 month research project with the CSIRO, working with their scientists/researchers. She is not brilliant by any means - but is a hard worker. She is learning all about filling in forms!
I had better get back to my sewing - we have Bec's first comp for the year next weekend and she needs new costumes. Can't wait to start playing with the Bejeweller - hot fix crystals sound far more fun than sewing sequins.
