Pinterest Challenge Highlights

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

It’s not ‘BOTB’ day, but it should be because there were so so many amazing projects linked up to the Summer Pinterest Challenge earlier this week!  Over 400 bloggers linked up their DIY talents, and I was blown away by all the creativity out there.  I simply couldn’t let the week go by without sharing a few highlights!
