Join us with "Splish-Splash" by Bobby Darin




THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "This challenge is a splash!"  Include some form of water to celebrate "Showers" (Spring, Wedding, Baby, Housewarming). Or, give us watercolor technique or paper background, splatter or rain drops using products that represent water (liquid glass, glossy accents).

You can stop here ...  

Or you can opt to use the TicTacToe board below so that you can enter into a second challenge.  




THING 3: Twisted Sister
says "I live in the Pacific Northwest and raindrops keep fallin' on my head (sing-along with BJ Thomas).  To keep the raindrops from fallin' on my head include a bumbershoot on your project." 

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random prize draw if you include a *Bumbershoot. 

*Trivia: "Bumbershoot" is a predominantly American nickname, one that has
been recorded as a whimsical, slightly irreverent handle for umbrellas since the late 1890s. As with most slang terms, the origins of "bumbershoot" are a bit foggy, but it appears that the "bumber" is a modification of the "umbr-" in "umbrella" and the "shoot" is an alteration of the "-chute" in "parachute" (since an open parachute looks a little like an umbrella).  



THING 2: Double Dare
says if you have completed a row, column or diagonal from this TicTacToe board then you are eligible to link your project at The Joy of Sets #004 HERE and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw.



Here are our Things...


Thing 1: Used watercolor background paper
