Anyone for painting?

Here is my take on last weeks Twisted sketch #21. I finally managed to get my hands on the diecut stickers to go with the October Afternoon papers. I have loads of Charlotte on her first day of school and thought the Report card range would be perfect for this. I have placed the scissors as if cutting the tape measure, I've put it at the age Charlotte was when she started school 4 3/4.

So I have spent my morning painting, I've now put the second coat onto the ceiling and I've now started on the walls. Have you ever started to paint something and then think I'm not sure whether I like the colour? Hmm well that's just what I have done, so I've walked away from it and will take another look once it's dried I just hope I feel differently then.

I went into school yesterday and I can honestly say that I'm enjoying this new experience. The kids are just great and it feels good to be able to help. With a few of the children I can see a big different in there reading which is just great, most of them are trying really hard to improve. I love the conversations we have whilst reading the books, they get really engrossed in the story. As Charlotte is close to the classroom I'm in, I love to get a sneaky look at her when she is playing and having fun with her little friends.

Righto I'm off, take care.
