I've really been enjoying working with digital images lately and when I saw the Coffee Sue image from C.C. Designs I knew I was going to use it in my Canvo. This is me. Every day. Except my cup is full of steaming hot chai. But the slippers, the glasses, the laptop and even the name - it's me. Unfortunately the image is no longer available.

I printed it onto some white card stock and colored it with my Prisamcolor Pencils - the colors are listed below. I used the Post This Slimline Die to cut the panel then slid the paper up to cut just the top edge to make it shorter. (I hope that makes sense)

I used the Hampton Arts Birthday Banners Dies and patterned papers from Catherine Pooler Designs - Pop the Bubbly Patterned Paper pack and the Potluck Party Patterned Paper pack - to make the banners. The sentiment is from Catherine Pooler Designs Re Sentiments Stamp Set and stamped in Midnight ink. 

I used a fine tip black marker to draw out the months making each box 6 squares by 6 squares. I used a light and dark grey Tombow marker to add the shadow along the top and the sides and then the light grey marker to add the stripes to each square. I drew the three boxes that look like post it notes and the thumb tacks too. It's hard to tell in the pics but I used a light and dark green Tombow marker to highlight the dates and to add color to the thumbtacks.
The little June calendar is from the Months Many Ways Stamp Set and May is from a retired set. 

It's been a while since I've taken the time to make my planner page pretty. I had so much fun creating this spread that I need to remember to do it more. I love how it turned out and now to fill it up and get organized for the month.
