Surprise Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Surprise!  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 Rachel's awesome blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, you may want to start at Yumi & Fumi's Handmade Crafts.


Happy Birthday, Leanne!!!
Best wishes for a wonderful birthday!  Thank you for inspiring us, and for being so thoughtful and generous!  

I thought it'd be only appropriate to use this Fumi with Umbrella image.  I paper pieced her kimono with washi paper.  I love the colors on this paper!

The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and I stamped it onto PTI's banner die.  I put a couple of score marks on each end so I could get it to stand like above.  Added some blue rhinestones too.

I will keep this short and simple so you can go ahead and visit the other ladies on this hop.  Next up on the hop is the super talented Carisa!  If you get lost along the way, please check back at Yumi & Fumi Handmade Crafts for the entire hop list.  Don't forget to end at Leanne's personal blog to wish her a Happy Birthday too!

Thanks for reading!
