Chinese New Year Blog Hop (Day 2)!

Chinese New Year Hop
Chinese New Year Blog Hop 
January 22-23, 2012 
Year of the Dragon
Ni hao!...and WELCOME to day 2 of the Chinese New Year Blog Hop! This hop is in honor of Alex, the little boy my friend April's family recently adopted from Taiwan. To celebrate his culture, we want to share some Chinese-inspired projects with you!

If you arrived here from Dena's blog then you are in the right place! If you just joined us, you can also go back to April's blog at to see everyone's amazing creativity 
from the start of the hop!

For my project today I have this little asian-inspired "pocket notes purse" to share...
(remember, you can click on my image to see it up-close!)
This little gift-box with handle was created using instructions I found on (project is named "Pocket Notes Purse"). The stamp set I used is called "Aspiration" and the papers I used are "Unforgettable", both retired products from Close to my Heart.

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!
 THANK YOU for stopping by and
Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
Your next stop is Theresa's blog! Enjoy!!
