  • We’d love it if you’d grab the party badge from below or link back some other way from the post so people can find all the other entries
  • If you have a Pinterest account it would be great if you’d follow the party board and the hosts and do leave us your id in the comments so we can follow you back.
  • Try and visit at least two other contributors either via the linky or via the board and comment/share/repin the ones you like.
  • Don’t forget to leave your Pinterest ID for them too so we can all find some great new pinners to follow.
