I remember the hat and mittens because I think I wore them every year until they wore out. The dog in the picture was Dolly. I loved her so much. She ran away one year while dad took her hunting. She never came back. This is the same paper pack as the last photo Snow Fun by Carta Bella. I added some red sequins with rhinestones on them and some red pearls at the top. The snowflakes,…
