Artist Marci for Back to School at La-La Land

Happy Monday all, I'm at home today because it's a bank holiday Monday here in the UK, so no work for me today.  Which is nice because it means I have an extra day to fight off this nasty cold before I go back to work and also hopefully get some crafting done.

Today is my final posting as GDT for La-La Land Crafts' Team Monday and at this point I would be very sad except for 2 things - 1.  I shall be rejoining the girls again once my schedule is a little less heavy and 2 the lovely Irina has let me stay on in the meantime as part of the La-La Land Club design team.  What is the La-La Land Club I hear you ask?  Well you can find out all about it here, and tomorrow I'll be posting my inspiration makes for it, so all will be revealed.  Also when time permits you may still see a make for Team Monday from me from time to time when I can fit them in, how great is all that?  I'm very happy because I would miss the girls a lot if I had to leave completely and be a very sad bunny.

Anyway enough of my drivel and on to my make for today.  Now you will have to forgive this for not being my best work but Back to School is one of my least favourite themes, plus I was trying to make it in between all the sneezing, sniffling and wheezing lol, I really wasn't very well.  But I don't think it turned out too badly in the end.

I thought I'd make a little notebook to fit the theme and I thought an artist's notebook would actually be very useful for me as I'm always losing my Colour Charts and notes and I thought I could keep a track of different colour combos I try there too rather then relying on my memory.

La-La Land Products Used:

The notebook was brought from my local Sainsbury's, I can't remember how much it cost but it was pretty cheap.
I coloured Marci with my Copics.
