A Simple Thank You for GDP027

I find it kind of funny that right after participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog and Project Highlight with the fairly broad theme of Thank You, I go to the Global Design Project website this morning to find their new challenge with the same theme! Well I guess you can never have too many thank Read More
