๐Ÿ–ค Happy January Creative Friends ๐Ÿ–ค
Calling all fans of the Master of Macabre!
Today is Edgar Allan Poe's Birthday and National Poe Appreciation Day and as is tradition here at LeighSBDesigns we celebrate with 5 glorious days of all things Poe, so here we go, it's time to kick off our 8th annual Edgar Allan Poe Blog Hop!

Everyone is invited to the Edgar Allan Poe Blog Hop party using any stamp products!  Join the fun at any time during the 5 day Hop and then hop along with us and enjoy the show!  We always have a POEtastic time so tell your friends and celebrate your love of Poe with us and be in the running for some POEtastic prize(s) that, as usual, are based on your participation so the more you play the better the prize(s)๐Ÿ˜‰

The Edgar Allan Poe Blog Hop linky below opens today at 9am!  Simply link up your Poe inspired makes at any time during the 5 day Hop then hop and comment on all the makes linked up on the same day you join the fun to be fair to everyone hopping to your blog that same day.
Please also comment on this Main Hop Post to say Hi and leave us some love on all 5 of LeighSBDesigns makes coz we do love to hear your thoughts on our makes too๐Ÿ˜‰  This is in addition to hopping on the days you play for the other entries!  You will also have extra time at the end of the hop to comment on the makes entered on the last day!
The Linky Party closes on Jan 23rd at 5 minutes to midnight pacific and I will begin the tallying of the makes and comments on January 26 and announce the Winner(s) soon after.
