Crafty Ann's #56 Let's think hot

The first challenge of 2012 over at Crafty Ann's is "Let's think Hot" - this can be using hot colours or summery images it's up to you ( or do both as I did!). One of my New Years Resolutions is to get some of my many photos scrapbooked so I asked Santa to buy me Craft Artist then lo and behold two days later I won a copy of My Memories Suite in a blog competition!! (Typical eh!) As MMS was a download it made it on to the computer first so here is my first layout using some old holiday photos from 2009.

The following components were from Crafty Ann's digi shop - mottled stone backing paper, tropical beach scene, flowers and journalling label - everything else is from MMS. Ann has just launched her first scrapbook kit this week - Sweet Sage - check it out here.
Do call by the challenge blog to check out what the other girls have created as believe me they're HOT HOT HOT.

House of Gilli - anything goes
Oh La La Creations - anything but a card
