Click HERE  for an introduction to our Challenge and HERE  for complete guidelines.

WELCOME to Challenge #14 - Let the Troubles Begin!


THING 1:  Trouble Maker 
says "Only 6 weeks to Christmas" - and less if you want to get them in the mail before the 15th of December... so we challenge you to create a Christmas/Holiday/Winter project to get on Santa's Nice List.  

You can stop here 
Or you can opt to use the TicTacToe Board below and have a bigger chance on the Nice List.   


THING 3: Twisted Sister 

"Dear Santa, I can explain, it's who I hang out with!" Help me get off the Naughty List and on the Nice List - all you have to do is include any hanging items on your project - stockings, garland, ornaments, lights, banners, etc. Remember this is an OPTIONAL TWIST but it's so easy that we hope everyone will join in. If you do the twist, Double Trouble will give you an extra chance in our random draw. 


THING 2: Double Dare

says if you use a row, column or diagonal from the TicTacToe Board here you can link your project at Try Stamping on Tuesday and Double Trouble will give you an extra chance in our random draw.

Challenge 13 - Some Thing, Any Thing and Every Thing

Click HERE for an introduction to our Challenge and HERE for complete guidelines.
Please take time to read so you don't get in trouble. Consider being a follower and
use our participant badge or any photo from our challenge for your posting.

WELCOME to Challenge #13 - Let the Troubles Begin
Whoopi - there are five Mondays in this month. Time for our 
"Something, Anything and Everything" 
ONE WEEK ONLY CHALLENGE 






THING 1: Trouble Maker 
For some the number 13 is synonymous with bad luck. It's considered unlucky to have 13 guests at a dinner party, many buildings don't have a 13th floor and most people avoid getting married or buying a house on a day marked by this number. Some superstitious folks even avoid driving on Friday the 13th. 


"Who says the 13th has to be unlucky? And besides it's a Monday not a Friday?" Let's turn it around and join our Double Trouble's Lucky #13 Challenge. Trouble Maker says this is a Free for All challenge so have a little fun creating with "Some Thing", "Any Thing" and "Every Thing". Remember, this is a one-week challenge. 



THING 3:
Twisted Sister agrees #13 can be a lucky number. Include your lucky number on a project. For example, this can be a die-cut, hand-drawn or stamped number, a pair of dice, playing cards, etc. This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but it's so easy that we hope everyone will join in. If you do the twist, Double Trouble will give you an extra chance in our random draw.




THING 2:
Double Dare has more than doubled the fun. Link up your project with any of our previous partners for an additional chance for the Double Trouble random draw.

If your project was entered into one of our previous partner challenges below and have met their requirements, include in your Blog Your project for Double Trouble could meet the requirements of the challenges below providing you meet their requirements. So make sure you read their instructions carefully and dates that they are open .... we don't want you to get in Trouble with them. Please include in the comment section below or in your Blog any of these other challenges you chose to team with. 

  


For inspiration... here are our Things:

Lucky 7 Slot Machine Shaker

Suzanne Reynolds

Twisted Sister is still trying to get unraveled from the toilet paper mummy trouble

that I was in last week.  I'll have my project posted soon. 

In the meantime here's a photo from our weekend fun. 
We had 42 friends and family at our annual Pumpkin Carving Party.  We survived a down pour, feasted on soups and dessert, carved pumpkins and watched an "outdoor movie", Casper!
