Just a quick note...

Hello....

I wanted to let all of our wonderful followers know that the new challenge will be late going up. I am out of town and am not able to access wi fi from where I am, so therefor I am unable to use my laptop to setup the posts for the new challenge. I am so very sorry and I will get it posted just as soon as possible.

Courtney~
