Today at For Fun Challenges we are wishing all Leap Year baby’s a “Happy Birthday”. It would be a blessing and a curse to be born on that day…when your young it would suck that you don’t get to celebrate your birthday every year….but that is a blessing when you are older cause it takes 4x as long to age!!

We have a sponsor this week which is KnK Designs!


I’m a dog lover so I totally fell in love with all her stamps! I wanted to use one of the dog images but my step-niece is turning 1 in a week so I decided the Birthday Bear would be perfect for her. Time is very valuable at the moment so if I can I try to make things that I need. Plus it also makes me get out of my comfort zone and do something I wouldn’t normally do.  So please check out her stamps as they are cute and reasonable priced.
