Title: A Classroom Layout
Hostess: Vannessa, saffivort
Keyword: SEP12VSNL
Day/Date: Saturday, Sept 22nd
Time: 6:00pm EST

Back in the day of Victorian classrooms (and actually in the Simpsons classroom's too) the children sat in rows all facing the blackboard and the teacher's desk, looking a bit like this:

http://www.imagespace.co.uk/images/vict_class.jpg

Or like this:

http://larrycuban.files.wordpress.co...-classroom.png

But my classroom looks nothing like that. In fact I don't even have a teacher's desk, not a proper one. I have a small children's table for my computer that is connected to my interactive whiteboard, but not an adult sized desk. My 5 sets of children's tables are also in groups of 6 or 8.

Those older classroom layouts are perfect for a sketch though. My challenge is to use the sketch below, based on a linear style classroom to create a card. Feel free to flip it, rotate it as long as I can still see the sketch there. I've added a couple of samples as well.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Around here, it doesn't take much snow to shut things down. School kids get so excited for a snow day! Me, too.

I absolutely love snow days, but we hardly get any over here in the UK. Possibly 1 day a year and then we almost have to fight to get it as our head teacher makes us go in if it snows. His idea is if he can get in from the little country village about 10 miles away then most of the staff who live in the city can do as well! Might have to think about moving out to the sticks where I can't get out of my driveway! :p

I love working with sketches Vannessa so this sketch was perfect for me. Makes designing a card so much easier. Here is my entry

This is gorgeous - a perfect Autumn/Fall card. (We don't use Fall over here in the UK so I have to remember to use it on here :))

Great sketch idea Vanessa, and it's all I've ever known, we started school with slate tablets and slate sticks and look at where we are now back to tablets even though they are some what more expensive :lol:

Heres my card Sip by Sip

Love this one! Those papers are one of my favourite packs to come out for the last couple of years! The colours are just yummy!

Love your card - fab idea and I love all the rainbow squares!

And you're spot on with the tablets. My school haven't quite got them yet. My head teacher won't go down the iPad route just yet, so we've got a stack of notebooks coming instead - the electronic versions :P But in a few years time I can see almost all schools in the UK using some sort of tablet.

Margscardcrazy 09-22-2012 02:38 PM

Lee you crack me up, half the fun of VSN is to see what smilys you can come up with :lol:

oh wow Vannessa-looks like I totally missed the bottom part of your sketch. I never even saw it-someone mentioned it on their card

I struggled with this one until I remembered I had a stamp I could use and not try to fit die cuts on a quarter sheet with room to spare!

saffivort 09-23-2012 02:18 PM

Thank you to everyone for joining in my challenge. I'll be back tomorrow to comment on everyone's cards, but I really need to head to bed :) It's way too late over here in the UK!

Markey 09-24-2012 03:26 AM

Thanks so much for the fun layout idea, here is my classroom layout

ohmypaper! 09-24-2012 06:30 AM

Fun sketch! My inspiration struck last night for your challenge. I am not sure it turned out as good as I hoped but after investing the time last night, I wasn't going to trash it. Maybe another kind of ribbon or twine would have been better on the tags. Anyway....

Here is: Tag Full
