Pinterest Party; You Pin Us We Pin You!

Good morning, I am hoping everyone is having a relaxing weekend.  So Let's Party! that is Pinterest Party!
Pinterest Party

Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)
Pinterest Party Rules
#ButterflysPin
There have been many questions about where to place the hashtag "#ButterflysPin so I am including a clip to hopefully help show where to place it.
Pinterest party example

Easy Tweet: Please post this button to your blog to spread the word :)
