Frosted Winter Layout

Hello my friends and welcome to my very first Blog Hop!   Thanks for stopping by! At the end of my post is a list with links to the rest of the hop.
Today I am sharing this gorgeous layout using the new Frosted Paper Packet from Close to my Heart.  This is my favorite pack from the new catalog.  I love these soft muted colors.
For today's layout I added some Ruby card stock for a bit of contrast.  I plan on making more projects using other colors, like pink and black.  Don't you think they would look great with the Frosted papers?
My kids and I use to love playing in the snow.  We always had a nice little hill, made from the snow plow, that was perfect for the little ones to slide down.
My favorite 'snow activity' was making snow men.  Not just one, we made whole families! plus their pets!
That's Ciara kissing her snow kitty.  Sometimes I miss those days....

  1. i love the red with the frosted paper!!

    1. Thanks Diane! I was going to use pink then changed my mind. I'm glad I did :-)

  2. Your layout is wonderful. Sometimes I wish we had snow here but then when I go visit Utah I'm glad we don't.

    1. ha ha I know what you mean! Snow was great when we were all younger. Now I live in Florida and am very glad I do!

  3. Adorable! Almost makes me miss snow!

    1. I do miss the snow, but only on the first day. I hated the slush and how dirty the roads would get.

  4. Really cute. Who doesn't like babies in the snow!? I love your pops of Ruby? This paper kit is so pretty but I like it with the bright accents to really make it shine.

    1. Thanks Debbie. Babies in the snow, yup. Loved it back then. Now they are all grown and only one of them stayed up north.

  5. I really like the pop of red edging on these layouts. Works great with your photos of adorable snow kids! I think pink and black will be beautiful with Frosted too!


    1. Thanks Paige. Yup my next project will definitely have black and pink!

  6. I really like that list bit of red throughout. Great job!

  7. Thank you Rebecca! I had a great time creating my layouts.
