Hey Hazel, can I join your embarrassment party ;0) I was just about to enter another project and thought I'd better check and somehow I've managed to enter a 4th project never mind the one I was about to submit...eeeek! But how did you delete our entries, I'm not seeing any options to delete mine?

  32. I everyone, please will you ignore my #375 entry, I didn't realize that was my 4th entry into this challenge! I'm not seeing an option to delete it so if you can that would be great! So sorry!
