We have a winner!

Yeah! Suruha got it when she guessed the location as Lakes of the Clouds.

The Lakes of the Clouds are a set of small ponds located at the 5,032 ft col between Mount Monroe and Mount Washington in the White Mountains of the U.S. state of New Hampshire. The lakes form the source of the Ammonoosuc River, a tributary of the Connecticut River.

Suruha check out my store at SAS and email me the name of the kit you'd like and I'll get it to you right away. Thanks everyone for playing along - you made it fun!

Photo hint

Blog Hop Freebie still available below until the 20th!

Here's another photo of  the location that isn't made into a background paper. My grandson standing there gives you a better idea as to size - the part of the water you can't see is about the same size as the part you can see and there's another body of water there about the same size or slightly larger.

A free kit of your choice if you guess!

Don't miss the blog hop freebie below!

The Blog hop Freebie will be here for one week and then it will be available in my store at SAS.

There's a free kit of your choice from my store for anyone who can guess the EXACT location of background #4.

Here's some hints: It's well known, it's in the state of New Hampshire and it's not easy to get to. When I was there it was October and it really wasn't that snowy - some of that snow is digital :). The name is 4 words long.

Okay - a few more clues, some of you are so close!
amsangel was close in name, but this is further north.
LJD has the right general area for location, but this is more specific.
One last hint - you can't drive to it - it's a 4 mile walk. I think the angle of this photo makes it look larger than it really is.

Frosty the Snow Man Blog Hop Freebie

Welcome to Millstream Cottage. Grab your hot chocolate and I'll sing for you while you download Frosty The Snowman. If you look at what I came up with you'll know I grew up with the generation that each year watched the movie by Rankin - Bass, which if I'm not mistaken is still on every year.
Hope you enjoy your goodies and be very thankful you can't hear me sing!

There are two previews, but the papers are the same - 4 snowy backgrounds and 27 elements for you to make your own frosty scene.

Starting 12/22 this Kit is available in my SAS store for $1.50

You have a lot of stops to make, so bundle up and head on to the next stop and have fun!

6 Sailors will receive gift packages

Well I finally got my scanner to cooperate so I could share with you what I was able to buy with proceeds from the Navy Kits. I should get another statement soon so I'll probably be sending another one, but they probably won't get it in time for the holidays.
I'll share with you what the items were for two reasons, in case you ever want to send one out on your own and also because I want everyone to know that these are things these guys need out there that are not being provided for them - okay, don't get me started LOL! All of these items were on a list I received from the ship. They put together packages they call "shoe boxes",  so I got enough to make up 6 good size boxes with some of everything they had on their list except the TP (called battle paper).
The only things I got them that weren't every day necessity items were a tin of popcorn and a couple of Pepperoni sticks, hopefully to be enjoyed at a holiday celebration.

Cotton swabs, Gold Bond Powder, Shampoo, snack crackers, Ricola cough drops, Cup O Noodles, bars of soap, baby wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss and deodorant.

So thanks so much to everyone who bought the kit - they will appreciate it and it will brighten their day to know someone from home is thinking of them!
