Make It Monday #126 with Kenny K


Has it been a week?? Must have been, the calendar says it's Monday so it must be time for 

I get the feeling that this year is going to zoom past even faster than last year.
My boys started back at school last week and it's a short first term for them being only 9 weeks long. They are already talking about the next school holidays and they have only just had six weeks break, lol!

I am very excited about this week's Make It Monday linky party as we are being sponsored by one of my all time favourite Digi companies but I am also a little sad as we are saying goodbye to one of our fantastic teamies.

Lisa M is stepping down from the team and we are going to miss her terribly although only on Mondays as we will all be hanging out at her blog for the rest of the week checking out her awesome creations and getting a big ol' dose of her wacky sense of humour.

I want to thank Lisa for being such a wonderful friend, team mate and inspiration.

I have absolutely loved working with you Lisa and I wish you all the best!

Please be sure to swing past Lisa's blog and give her a wonderful farewell as this week is her last post for MIM.

Ok, let's move forward now before I start to cry  and get on with the fun of this week's 

I have used one of my favourite images from our sponsor this week called

I have coloured this fabulous image with Copic Markers in the following colours:

Hair/Top - Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Jacket - R22, R24, R27, R29, R89, C00, C1 and Clear Spica pen
Jeans/Eyes - B91, B93, B95, B97

Was trying to give you a close up of the glittery effect of the clear spica pen on her gold top and the white trim of her jacket. You might be able to see it more clearly if you click on the image to enlarge it.

Ok, now for my favourite pick from last week's link up.

As always there are just so many fantastic entries to choose from but I absolutely loved this one from

Such a great layout and awesome colouring. Papers are gorgeous too.

Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday Steph.

The MAKE IT MONDAY linky party is up and running.

My fabulous teamies have created a selection of gorgeous cards to get things started.
