Pinterest Challenge


I love a good design challenge… …and I’m cuckoo for cocoa puffs about this fab four too… …so when Sherry tweeted about their¬†Pinterest Challenge idea while we were on the road the other day, I was inspired to get my craft on as soon as I got home! I’ll be honest, I haven’t completely figured […]
