Crafting for all Seasons #18 Snowmen/Snowflakes

Time for the first challenge of the New Year at CFAS and we'd like to see snowmen or snowflakes on your projects or both! We're being sponsored by Bugaboo, Some Odd Girl and The Stamping Boutique. Trying to keep to my New Year's Resolutions I've done a layout using some photos from last winter.

I'ved used templates and elements from My Memories Suite and added a snowman from Crafty Ann's and a snowman from The Paper Shelter.

Top Tip - all your digi images and papers can be used in your scrap booking programmes.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the creations of the other Design Team girls. We also have a DT call going on (check here for all the details) - this is a fabulous team to be part of, everyone is very friendly and supportive and we have lots of exciting challenges planned for the year ahead.
