Goodbye 2013 & Hello 2014

There's always something exciting about a New Year.
New beginnings and all that.
I am looking forward to welcoming 2014.
We don't have too many plans as yet.
The biggest plan we have to look forward to is Orlando in October.
276 sleeps : )
We are so excited as we are going for 3 whole weeks this time.

I made this LO with my January Cocoa Daisy Kit - Blueprint

I used the little 'Whimsical Frame Set' here to document a few of the things we have to look forward to. I was thinking I might add to it as the year goes on. Infact we've just made plans to go away for Louis' birthday at the end of the month, so there's one I can already add.
I can see myself using this stamp set a lot.

I love the 'Months' stamp that comes with the 'Day in the Life' kit.
They are all little teeny individual stamps, so you don't have to use them all in one go. Cool eh?!
Anna has a blog post at Cocoa Daisy today with some tips for using some of this months stamps, which includes this LO and me using this particular stamp. You can see it here.

So as we say 'hello' to 2014 it does mean saying 'goodbye' to 2013.
Not a bad year, pretty uneventful really. But no complaints. 
Dad came from the US in August, we took the kids to their first Rock Concert to see Green Day, also in August. We also took the kids to see 'Phantom of the Opera' in London.
We've used our Merlin passes so much this year with numerous days out to various London attractions plus other London trips too. The kids found their love for Art Galleries too which is good and I love.

 I've gone through my work and picked out my favourite LO's of the year.
Here you go.

It's been quite a creative year.
So, here's to another.
Thanks for stopping by today and happy 2014 to you xxx
