Sorry about the dead blog this week. On the days that I've not been called into work, I've been trying to catch up with 6+ weeks of neglected housework. Let's just say that it has not been real fun to discover that bathrooms can get cob webs in the corners!! YIKES!!
Ok...now to catch up on the creative end!! There are some exciting things happening with Just For Fun® this week. First, we would like to announce and welcome a new designer to the team . . . Kat Tucker! Kat is
one of those designers that makes my jaw hit the ground!! I just can't wait to give some of her projects a try!! Please make sure you drop by Kat's blog and give her a big ol' FUN welcome!
Another exciting event is the launching of the new Just For Fun® Blog! You’ll be able to find albums for all the designers on the right hand side where you can view all their designs in one place. You’ll want to check out the new Designer page where you can read more about your favorite designers and get to know them better too!!
Saving the best for last . . . . we are announcing a new weekly color challenge . . . Just For Fun® Fridays. Each Friday there will be a new color challenge posted on the Just For Fun® Blog and samples will be posted on each Designer’s blog. (yes!! This means that I will be posting at LEAST once a week now!! BWHHAAAA!!) We are inviting you to play along with us and want to see your creative works too!! There will be a Mr. Linky at the end of each Friday’s post for you to link to your own card.

So to add to the already HUMONGOUS challenge of using pink, I gave myself another added challenge: to pull out an old technique that I haven't used in a while. Well, let me tell you!!
