NEW - Check out our Secret Sister's special gift in the guidelines.
Please take the time to read our guidelines so you don't get into trouble! Consider becoming a blog follower. Select the participant badge or any photo from our current challenge for your own blog posting.


WELCOME to Challenge #27 -

Let the Troubles Begin!
 
"Grab your Stuff"



THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "This is a Free-for-All challenge so have a little fun creating with "Some Thing", "Any Thing" and "Every Thing". Grab your bone folder, your stuff, and create something new."  We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use "stuff" you haven't used before.  

THING 3:  Twisted Sister 
is a little sassy.  Babble, Babble, Babble - She's lost for words.  Help her out and have words be the focus on your project.  Use stamps, patterned paper, embossing, stickers, rub-ons and create words.  

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw prize if you have included words on your project.      



THING 2: Double Dare
dares you to multiply the fun and link up your project with any of our previous partner(s) below for extra chances to our Random Draw. Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into Trouble with them.

This means: each time you link with a previous partner, or multiple partners with the same card, you gain additional chances for each partner challenge you entered. Please make sure you add them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.

Three Amigos Blog Hop
Sneak Peek:  For our 1st Year Anniversary of Double Trouble 
we will be simultaneously running
Challenge 28 and partner with Three Amigos (May 3-19) and 
The Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's BlogHop (May 3-10)

WELCOME to Challenge #26 - Let the Troubles Begin 


This oyster/pearl

When you find the image, leave a special comment in her blog
to be eligible for a special gift



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
Thing 3's Optional Twist: Bumbershoot
TicTacToe Column 1: Wedding/Glitter/Die Cut
or Row 1: Wedding/Glitter/Die Cut




Tracey Pierce 
Thing 1 used Shower Invitation
Thing 3 Optional Twist: Bumbershoot
TicTacToe Diagonal: Wedding/Vellum/Pearls




Thing 1: Used raindrop design paper
Thing 3's Optional Twist: Bumbershoot
