You can pick up your  own design from The Dragon's Lair Designs and give your hand to this fun  HAPPY NEW YEAR'S FRAMES Challenge.  There are many fantastic images and papers at the Store.  Just before the holidays, I could not resist the papers and their fantastic sale and chose almost every single paper design!

They are funky, they are solid, they are designed, they are exciting and they have all the embellies, frames, flowers, beads, etc. etc. and etc. to go with the papers.  It is a fantastic Zip into the Digi scrapping world!  Whether you just print the paper, or do the entire piece through Digi Creation, it is worth the purchase, which is more than reasonable prices.

Here is my card as one of the Designers for STAMPING WITH THE DRAGON Challenge this week.  I hope you like it.  As you can see - even a square frame can be round????? lol  And I hope you enjoy this Celebration of New Year's and enter the Challenge.  See you there!  

We will joyfully be over to your blog to look at your blog and your entry to the challenge and be excited to do so!!!!  I hope you enjoy THE DRAGON'S LAIR!!! and his "looking at YOU" to say to you HAPPY 2012 and may all joy, love, hope and success come your way.
