WELCOME to Challenge #67 - Let the Troubles Begin 
September 21st to October 4th

"On, Off, or Over the Edge?"  


Thing 1: Trouble Maker says, "We've all just about reached the proverbial edge with this ongoing pandemic. Let's not panic! We need to stay focused at a time like this so let's focus on a sketch from TSOT below. Keep it simple... take advantage of the shape that's off the edge by using shapes, paper, doilies, frames, sentiments and/or partial images, etc." 


You can stop here...
OR, you can choose to go further over the edge with Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below.


Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "There she goes again, Trouble Maker is trying to push me over the edge. So whether it's "On, Off or Over the Edge"... whatever ... let's just do it! Try to go beyond your edge and veer away from your normal comfort zone as you create your project for "Off the Edge". Here are some ideas by Jennifer McGuire that may be useful in providing inspiration."

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you followed the sketch then link your project to Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Biweekly Sketch Challenge (TSOT) HERE whether you used Twisted Sister's optional twist or not. You will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."   Since Try Stampin' starts on Tuesday, September 22nd, they have agreed to allow our Monday entries to come back and enter their challenge.  

Feel free to change the orientation... rotate or flip the sketch or use its mirror image.

"Make a Scene" 


Thing 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "Use anything from your stash to create a scene. This scene can be anywhere around the world.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister 
says, "What? Trouble Maker is always claiming that I am the one who makes a scene. Now she is doing it! Okay, Trouble Maker, you can have your scene but my optional twist is that the scene includes a mode of transportation. It can be anything from roller skates to aircraft but it has to be included for an extra chance at our random draw."  













Thing 2: Double Dare 
says, "If you have created a scene and have met the requirement "Around the World" (family memories, travel, heritage, bucket list... anything showing/documenting a place) then link your project HERE at The Paper Girls Challenge #207 and receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw."

Click HERE for an introduction to our challenges
and HERE for complete guidelines.
Please take the time to read so you don't get into trouble. Consider becoming a follower and using our participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your blog posting.


WELCOME to Challenge #65 - Let the Troubles Begin 

"Something, Anything, Everything"  




THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "SURPRISE... For our fifth Monday of the month, we are opening this challenge three days early, on Friday, August 28th, and will close on Sunday evening, September 6th." 

It's time again to grab your bone folder and other crafty stuff and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use the stuff' you have in your stash (new and/or old).

You can stop here...

OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister's Optional Twist below to earn additional chances at our random draw.



THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "September 1st is Emma M. Nutt Day. In 1878, she became the world's first woman telephone operator. I'm a nut for Emma Nutt so let's honor her by including a telephone on your project. Click HERE for some trivia on Emma M. Nutt.  



"And let's not forget about another popular telephone operator, 'Ernestine' (played by Lily Tomlin).  Remember "one ringy dingy... two ringy dingy" and, "Is this the party to whom I am speaking?"  Click HERE to enjoy one of her many popular skits.  

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this twist in your project, and a second if it's NOT a cell phone.   




THING 2:  Double Dare 
says, "I dare you to multiply the fun by linking your project with any previous partner(s) listed below. You will qualify for extra chances in our Random Draw." 

"Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into trouble."

This means each time you link to a previous partner with the same card, you gain an additional chance. Please identify each of them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.
