Taste Tester for Scrap TakeOut, Annemarie - Winter Fun

I created this layout for a challenge at Scrap TakeOut. For this challenge, we were given a free template and asked to use it. Simple right? So I did and here is the result. Check out the upcoming challenges at STO for fun and freebies and chatting too.
(I am hosting my first challenge in March)

CT, Annemarie for Dees-Deelights - SUMMER SURF COLLECTION BUNDLE, Freebie, cluster

Although we have sub zero temps where we live, below zero wind chill, and snow everywhere, I am sure some areas of the world are warm and sunny (and I should  be there on vacation).  To celebrate summer, surf, and the beach, Dees-Deelights has released a new series called Summer Surf.  When I saw the preview, I just went crazy!  It seemed bright, fun, and filled with all sorts of summer goodies!  Here is the main kit to show you what I am talking about....
If I cannot have warm weather now, at least I can look back at some warmer moments......
