Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop Day 1: Ode to Poe - Altered Cube by Leigh!

Welcome to LeighSBDesigns 3rd annual Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop!
Five glorious days of POE starts NOW!
my Edgar Allan Poe Living Dead Doll is here to enjoy his party!

The most POE-ful time of the year is finally here, my annual 5 day long celebration of Edgar Allan Poe's birthday which is today, Happy Birthday Mr Poe🎉

My 3rd Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop begins today and ends on the 23rd.  This is a progressive hop that spans 5 days with Poe inspired projects joining the fun every day as more Poe fans link up and share the Blog Hop roll on their own blogs!  Only blogs that include links to LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog and the Blog Hop Roll in the posts can play!  Let's see how viral we can go, spread the news far and wide!  EVERYONE is invited to take part or just hop so come join the fun and celebrate your love of all things Poe with us! 

The Poe Blog Hop Roll is below at the bottom of my post and it's on the Poe Page HERE too!

I have a birthday gift for everyone too, here's some "POE LOVE" for you❤️
I'd appreciate it if you'd all go and favourite LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique and join my LeighSBDesigns Facebook Fan Group😋

 Click the pic to go to LeighSBDesigns' website to download the freebie.  It will be up for a limited time and will disappear on January 24th!  Please don't pin or share, send your friends here instead to grab it for themselves😋

UPDATE:  The FREEBIE offer is now closed but you can still add this fun Poe tribute design to your collections.  The digi is now available in my LeighSBDesigns Etsy Boutique😋

It is super easy to participate!
You can play every day or just one day and link up anytime during the 5 days with no need to sign-up!  Anything goes, use any images from any company and all kinds of art is welcome including old ones, even the ones previously shared in the last 2 hops are welcome this year!  If you're a fan of Poe here's your excuse to make some Poe-tastic art!

To celebrate my 3rd Poe Hop I've designed my first LeighSBDesigns Poe Collection!
The collection is on sale at special release prices thru Jan 23rd.
Check out my launch video and my release post, I hope you love them😉


I'm giving away 2 prizes:
A Blogger Prize will be awarded randomly to one blog playing and a Commenter Prize will be awarded randomly to one visitor.
 To qualify for the prizes EVERYONE, including the bloggers, must comment on ALL projects shared in the hop!

Each prize is one LeighSBDesigns digi of your choice.
PLUS, if you use one of my new Poe digis your entry will count as 2!

Blog Hop Etiquette!  I want to regain the hop camaraderie we used to enjoy in the good old days so with that in mind I ask that all Blog Hop participants actually hop and comment themselves too!  You expect people to come to your blog to see and comment on your projects so please be nice and do the same in return!  It's only fair and the point of a Blog Hop after all!  Everyone will have a total of 10 days to hop and see all the fabulous Poe art so you will have plenty of time PLUS it qualifies you for the prize too!  Winners will be announced soon after!
