Challenge DDK - Pinterest Challenge

Remember this post with the  Mickey Topiary tutorial?  It all came to be because I had a bad link on my Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Board post.  When one of you sent me a request for a new link the tutorial had been taken down by the original poster.  I couldn't let you guys down so I set out to recreate it myself and I loved the end result.  This got me to thinking about something very frustrating for me...

One of my biggest pet peeves is clicking on something you love on Pinterest and it goes to a non-working link or it is just a picture uploaded by the user.  One of the greatest things about Pinterest is being able to find items you love and the source to buy them or a great tutorial for making them yourself.  So if you are not a creative type what do you do?  You ask me!! My latest adventure here at Disney Donna Kay is Challenge DDK and this week's theme is the...


I am asking you to challenge me to recreate something you saw on Pinterest and just can't figure out how to make yourself.  I will scour the internet for the best possible tutorials to recreate your project - and if all else fails I will create it from scratch myself.  In a couple of weeks I will be posting my version of the project complete with an easy to follow tutorial.

Here's how it works:

  • Add a link to the Pin you would like for me to recreate on the Disney Donna Kay Facebook Page.
  • Be sure to check out all of the submissions and comment on ones you would like to see recreated.
  • I will choose a Pin from those submitted on Thursday 7/3/14.  
  • My completed project will be posted on 7/18/14 with a step by step tutorial on how you can create it yourself.
Be looking for more DDK Challenges coming soon - I am very excited about challenging my friends to get their creative juices flowing and eventually would love to challenge you - my readers!!  So, hurry over to my Facebook page with your Pinterest link so we can get this party started!!

Have a Magical Day!!
Donna Kay
