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


WELCOME to Challenge #48 - Let the Troubles Begin! 

"Say Cheese" 




THING 1
: Trouble Maker
says, "This is National Cheese Lovers Day. 'Say Cheese' and create something that makes you smile, i.e., a humorous card, the word smile, babies/fur-babies, puns, a silly craft mishap, pizza or other comfort food, chocolate. What makes you smile?"

Don't stop here... consider Twisted Sister's optional twist (cheesy)… and/or use the beautiful optional sketches below for your inspiration.







THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Did somebody say cheese? Is it Taco Tuesday, Pizza Friday? I just had a grilled cheese dipped in tomato soup. What food puts a smile on your face? Include your favorite cheesy comfort food. If cheesy isn't comfort food for you, feel free to include a comfort food that you enjoy and we will give you an extra chance at our random draw." 


THING 2: Double Dare
says, "If you used one of Atlantic Hearts Sketches above as inspiration to create Thing 1 'Something to Make you Smile' you can enter your project at Atlantic Hearts."  

If you have not used Twisted Sister's optional twist "comfort food" you can still enter your project/ However, remember, you must link your project to the correct weekly sketch considering the date of each sketch challenge below."

HERE for Sketch 352: January 20 - 26, 2020
HERE for Sketch 353: January 27 - February 2, 2020

NOTE: If you are new to sketch challenges, it's fun and easy. Use the DT's cards for ideas or your own interpretation to create your project from the sketch. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also modify a square or rectangle into another shape as long as the basic sketch is visible in your project.

For Inspiration... 

Here are our Things using Sketch #352 





Twisted Sister has decided to take a LOA as she needed some personal time off.  
We asked Twisted Sister to twist her Sister's arm and persuade her 
to fill in for her Optional Twist "include a cheesy comfort food". 

We will miss Twisted Sister's inspiration; but we welcome 
Thing 4 (Twisted Sister's Sister) to share new talent to inspire us. 

Twisted Sister's Sister is new to Challenges but certainly not new to paper crafting 
 So, let's Welcome Linda Robertson to our Family of Things.
