We're Celebrating our 1st Birthday/Anniversary!!

**Hop update: The list has been updated with direct links to everyone's post.  If you have already commented on each post below then you are good for the drawing. Sparkle was unable to join us for a really awesome reason.  She just celebrated a wonderful anniversary with her husband. Congrats girl!  So as not to confuse anyone I have removed her name from the list. If she has time and has one up later I'll add her back in to the line up. Thanks and happy hopping!! ~Leanne

Hey everyone!!

It's our 1 year birthday/anniversary today!!  We can't believe how fast the year has come and gone and we have you all to thank for being so supportive.  We wanted to kick off the "First" with something special and who knows, it might become an annual event.  We asked some special guests to help us with our very first birthday/anniversary blog hop and we're very fortunate to have most of these wonderful crafters say yes.  It wouldn't be a celebration without prizes right?  3 lucky commenters will win prizes and all you have to do to qualify is follow our blog, follow each crafters blog, leave a comment on each of the blogs listed in the hop and link up at the bottom of this post.  Pretty simple yea? :)

On behalf of our team at Yumi & Fumi Handmade we'd like to say a big Mahalo to all of you who have made our first year a fun ride.  We've made so many new friends and we hope to make more in the coming year. So many of you have purchased our stamps and brought so much life and warmth in to each image and we're so thankful for that.  When we started this journey we had no idea that these stamps would make such an impact on our lives.  We're truly blessed with our team and ohana and we're so glad you could all be a part of it.  Mahalo!!

Alrighty, let's get to the hop!  We decided to give everyone a photo inspiration to create with and here is the photo that the Design Team chose. It's perfect for our celebration with those beautiful bold and bright colors.  Makes me think of a summer time celebration.

Here are the rules:
  • Become a follower of our blog
  • Become a follower and leave a comment on each blog in the hop.  Please note: We have crafters joining us from all over the world so if they do not have their post up, please wait patiently and keep checking back.  You do not need to leave a comment on that.
  • Link up below. The Linky collection will stay open until Friday, July 12th at noon.
  • We're going to randomly choose 3 winners that have completed all the criteria above to win some special prizes and announce the winners on Monday.
Now it's on to the hop!  Have fun!
On behalf of our entire ohana, Mahalo for your love and support of Yumi & Fumi Handmade stamps for the past year.  We look forward to many more celebrations with you.  Mahalo for stopping by!!
The Yumi and Fumi Handmade Ohana
