Welcome to my blog and the Chinese New Year Blog Hop!

Ni hao and welcome to the Chines New Year Blog Hop!  This hop is in honor of Guan, the little boy April's family is adopting from Taiwan.  To celebrate his culture, we want to share some Chinese-inspired projects with you! 

If you arrived here from Lynne at Her Craftiness, then you are in the right place!  If you just joined us, please go back to April's blog at to see everyone's amazing creativity!

Here is the lineup in case you get lost...

So this year is the year of the dragon.  I created a card for the occasion.

Paper is from K&Company Que Sera Sera, Stampin Up Early Espresso and Old Olive, my scraps
Pagoda and Storybook Cricut cartridges
Martha Stewart Corner Rounder

We have some great blog candy to offer from April Nourse and PSA Essentials.  To be eligible, you must simply comment on each blog on each day's post.  We'd love for you to become a follower of each of our blogs too.

Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop is Amy.

Ashley, Your dragon is wonderful! The dark matting behind him makes him pop out. He looks like he is really roaring. I love the print paper you used. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
