SURPRISE!! Birthday Hop


Today we are celebrating Leanne Poe's birthday by throwing a fun birthday blog hop party! We thought we'd gather a few of her friends and design team members to celebrate her special day. If you came here from Rosie's blog you are in the right place. If you didn’t you may want to start at the beginning at Yumi & Fumi's Handmade Crafts blog.

I met Leanne in January '12 at the CHA convention in Anaheim. I remember being so nervous to be traveling half way across the world to hook up with people I had never met before. I need not have been nervous because Leanne (along with the other guys) made the whole experience so memorable. I had one of the best weeks ever! It would be fantastic to be there in person to wish Leanne a happy birthday but as that isn't an option I wouldn't have missed this blog hop for the world!!

Happy Birthday Leanne!!

Be sure to end at Leanne's personal blog to wish her a Happy Birthday!! Next up on the hop is Kim!! 

And here is the full list in case you've lost your way....
