2013 - A New Year Begins

Out with the old, in with the new - often said, but hey, a new day dawns just like every other day except this one has an added bonus - it's NEW YEAR'S DAY !!!

In our household, that means camp, cricket, friends, lazy days just chilling.  Phew!  Just what we need to recharge those empty batteries that only the end of a year can bring.  And 2012 has been draining ........

So, onward and upward to new creations, new projects, new challenges, new adventures, new ........ , so to start I've been playing with a double page in my 6" x 6" album:

Playing with Dylusions inks is sooo much fun and I've added my friend "Karin" from Stampotique as she has a lovely big smile and is just waiting to celebrate the New Year. 

The letters and numbers are a combination of two different stamp companies and the floating balloons are from an old discontinued SU "Birthday Best" (one of the first stamp sets I bought from them, an oldie but a goodie).

To finish this post, I just want to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!   Enjoy the celebrations.

Happy crafting!
