First Day Excitement

I love that first day excitement feeling on a holiday.
It's the best!!

I used this photo on my new LO that was taken our first morning.
We got up early and got to Magic Kingdom for 8am before it was open. We walked down an empty Main Street and had breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at Crystal Palace. We could see the castle from our window. It was perfect.
We met this chap as soon as we arrived.

I played along with the new Cocoa Daisy challenge set by Martha.
We'd love you to play along with us.

I Love Pumkin Oh Yes I Do!!!!!

I feel like that title should be sung.
''I Love Pumpkin Oh Yes I do''.
''Tra la la la la la la la laaaaaaaaa''.

That's how much I love them!!!

So much so that I made a LO about them too.

Whilst in the US last month I had as many different pumpkin dishes as possible.
The Cheesecake Factory cheesecake was amazing. Lots of pecans and caramel. So Good!! But on our first ever visit to Dennys, they won best pancake dish. Hands down!!
Those pumpkin pancakes were just the best pancakes I've ever had. With pumpkin spice whipped cream and cinnamon sugar. Yum!!
I bought some pumpkin spice back with me and have been recreating my own and using it in cream for pumpkin cake. It's so good!!
  This LO is featured on the Cocoa Blog today with tips on how to use these free printables that come with each monthly kit. See here.
Happy Monday to you xxx

Fun with Stamps

Hello to you on this grey and rainy day.
To brighten this day up I have a really fun LO to share with you.

It's hard to believe that this was taken just a few weeks ago, 20th October to be exact. I can't imagine how hot it was that day. We were in Islands of Adventure and we happened to see storytime in Seuss Landing. Being big Dr Suess fans we stopped to watch. We were fortunate to find a brolly to sit under, it was so hot and it was still only 10am ish.

I love that they didn't care that they were the oldest kids there but instead just sat and listened to the Dr Suess stories.
I used my November Cocoa Daisy Stamps a fair bit on this LO. I created a border with the CD paper along with the large arrow stamps. And I used the DITL kit to layer up beneath my photo.
Take a look here for more projects using this months stamps. 
Enjoy your day xx

I wish I could wake up to this everyday

Every morning whilst away we would open up the blind of our balcony, lay in bed and watch the sunrise.
It was my favourite part of the day.
We'd put the kettle on and sit out there and enjoy the warmth and the morning sun.
The perfect start to any day.
I cried for that sunrise Saturday morning : (

I used my November Cocoa Daisy Kit.
I used the wood vaneer as a mask with Maya Mist and then used the blue wood vaneer and placed my photo on top.

I used this months Cocoa Daisy Sketch.

You have 2 weeks to play along if you wish.
You could win $10 to spend in the CD store.
See here for full details.

Enjoy!! x

Time for Hellos & Weathervane

It's been a while.
We are now home from a 3 week trip to Orlando.
It's taken me a couple of days to settle and stop getting teary each time I think about it.
So I guess I should pre-warn you from now - Orlando photo overload for the next few months.
And yes, before you ask....the next trip is already being planned : )

Whilst I was away Cocoa Daisy launched the new November Kit 'Weathervane'.
It was waiting for me when I came home.

Lucky Me!!
Friday afternoon was unpacking, Saturday we went to Swindon to collect our doggie from Mum's, we went out for lunch and I spent the evening with my sister.
Sunday was catching up with the house and work and finally Sunday afternoon I opened my Cocoa Daisy box.

Here is my first Orlando LO of this trip using this beautiful kit.

That's it for now.
I will be back with lots of stories very soon.
Hugs xxx
