Yumi & Fumi 1 Year Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!


We've got some celebrating to do today.  Why?!  Well it's Yumi & Fumi's 1 year anniversary, that's why! Woo Hoo!!

We can't believe how fast that came but we're super excited to be celebrating it.  We're having our very first anniversary blog hop and invited some special friends to help us.  You should have come from my beautifully talented cousin, Sharmaine's blog.  If you've just popped in and want to get in on the fun, head on over to the Yumi & Fumi Handmade blog where you can start at the beginning of another beautifully amazing crafters blog, my teammate, Eva Uyeunten.

We decided to use an inspiration photo for the hop and as you saw each of the ladies you visited prior to me did an amazing job with it!  Here is a reminder of what the inspiration photo our design team chose looks like.  The colors are perfect for a summertime celebration don't you think?  Si!


Here's my celebration card featuring Summer Fumi, Bob the Yeti and Summer Yumi!


As you can see these guys are in a festive mood.  The bright colors with the subtle touches of brown really make this card pop!  I used the ink in the embossing folder technique for the backdrop and love how it turned out.  The rest well just came together all at once and the finishing touch is that beautiful sparkly pink Happy Birthday cut out from Island Scrapbooking in Hilo, Hi.


Thank you all so very much for being so supportive of Yumi & Fumi for the past year.  We look forward to our 2nd year with you.  Now it's time to head back to the Yumi & Fumi blog where it all begins and ends.  Don't forget to leave a comment before you leave!!! 

Mahalo for stopping by!!

Hugs,
Leanne
