Mystery sum sudoku

Fill in the grid so that each row, column, and block contain the numbers 1-9 exactly once, and so that there are no repeated entries in any connected shaded region. In addition, all shaded regions of a given color add to the same sum; for example, if one red shaded region has entries that sum to 21, then all red shaded regions in that puzzle sum to 21. The sums are not given; you must determine them yourself.
