Crazy Times!

Ok so I though last week was crazy, well this week topped it off...hehe!

My twins started their first day of Prep last week and my son started his first day of High School all on the same day. I have to tell you that I did get a bit upset and emotional....ok so I cried my eyes out...hehe! My girls had such a hard start to life, so it was quite emotionl to see them all healthy and grown up and starting school like big girls! Today is their first full day of school, they have been going for half days to get used to it, so they will be tired come tonight!

I have had my Smash Journal for a little while now with the intention of turning it into my Copic Color Journal, but I have just never gotten around to it, so I was inspired the other day to make a start in it, so here is my first Smash Page!

I have been writing Copic color combo's down here, there and everywhere, but of course I could never find what I had done with the peices of paper. So, I have started my Smash Copic Journal of color combo's I like. The hope is that eventually it is nice and full and when I am looking for some color combos I can just flick through my book and there I will find the color combo I am looking for.

Here is my first page in my Copic Color Journal. Of course I have done Red Hair Combos first, I do have a house full of red heads, including myself, So thought this was the perfect first page!

We would love to hear how you keep all your Copic Color Combo's. Do you have pages here, there and everywhere or do you have some sort of system going?

I will make sure to show you my next page when it is done.

Happy Coloring! Oh and for those people who are after the new 2012 Copic Sketch Colors I have it on very good authority that they have arrived in the store today, so make sure to head over to the M4M store and get yours!
