Happy Monday, and welcome to Grungy Challenge number 21! This week we're going to explore some really cool ways to use Idea-ology Fragments, with some hot-off-the-press techniques from Tim's Blog!

Well, Tim knew, but I sure didn't! Check this out:
I'm always thrilled when Mr. H posts a new technique on his blog, but I've gotta say, this is one of my favorites ever. Four clever new ways to rock the Fragments! For the purposes of this challenge, you need only try ONE of the four techniques, but really, they're so much fun, I bet you'll want to try 'em all.

Oh, did I mention that someone's going to win a prize? A REALLY COOL prize, with lots of Tim Holtz goodies? It's true, and all you have to do to be eligible is enter Challenge 21. I'll announce the winner and ship the prize package before I leave for the cruise.
