Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to your 5th stop on the Paper Secrets Holiday Blog Hop.

I made this to share with you today.  Its a layout combining the old with the new.  This is MME  Lost and Found Collection Portabello Road (which is brand new)  mixed with Kaiser Kraft's old winter line.  I'm not even sure of its name, but it is at least 3-4 years old.  There is also a Maya Road shear and a Basic Grey little birdie too.  I find it is really hard for me to combine lines, but I love it when I do!


These are my 3 oldest kids when we were in Utah for Thanksgiving.  These California kids never see snow so they were really excited to finally get to touch snow!  It really made us all excited for Christmas and wintertime.  All of us, except the 3 year old.  This is what he was doing while the big kids played:

He couldn't quite figure out how to play and keep the mittens on.  (And he didn't want me to take his picture!)

Don't forget to leave a comment on all 25 blog posts and then 1 final post in the forum for your chance to win 1 of the 3 gifts Paper Secrets is giving away.
