"Halloween Cuteness"  


THING 1: Trouble Maker 
says, "Let's skip the tricks and share the treats for Halloween.  Show us a cheerful and cute approach to Halloween or the Fall season, perhaps using cats, pumpkins, candy or cute ghosts and witches, etc. 


You can stop here... 
OR  
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw.  






THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Well, I don't know why Thing 1 wants to skip tricks, because I'm all for tricks. You know what's tricky? I always say, 'Washi tape that is not sticky will be tricky.'

Search your washi tape stash and you'll be surprised when you find your perfect match... We know this match is somewhere hidden in your stash. Soooo.... my optional twist? Include some washi tape on your project."  

Optional Twist:  If you have included washi tape on your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw.




THING 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have created Thing 1's requirement to create a Halloween project, whether you use the washi tape or not, you can add your project to Cupcake Inspirations #530 "Halloween Fun" HERE.  Cupcake Inspirations challenge ends on Friday, October 29th, so please make sure if you want to share your card you enter before their close of challenge.  

 

If you have entered your card at Cupcake Inspirations then you have earned another chance at Double Trouble's Random Draw.

"Fall Garland Inspiration"  


Thing 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "Looking out my window there were leaves, nuts and pinecones that had fallen to the ground in my garden of gourds.  It didn't take long to gather up these items of color to make a beautiful fresh fall garland for my banister.  

Use my fall garland as inspiration for colors and/or fall items. Use Your Stuff... go through your stash for papers, stamps, stencils, inks, embellishments, etc. to create a Fall project.  

You can stop here...
OR
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw. 


Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Fall leaves were lots of fun when I was a kid, but now they mean work!  I'd much prefer to be playing with pumpkins at my pumpkin carving party!  Let's make pumpkins with paper using a die, punch,  cutting machine, or scissors. "Carve your pumpkin" and include it in your project.  

This is an Optional Twist and if you have included your paper pumpkin in your project you have earned a special treat, an extra chance at a random draw.

"Something, Anything, Everything"  



THING 1: Trouble Maker

THING 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "It's the season of Harvest and I know Trouble Maker is eager to bite into a crispy apple. As for me, I'd rather bite into a warm apple pie. Let's make a fall project and include your favorite Fall Harvest item(s), e.g. pies, apples, pears, pumpkins, gourds, pomegranates, Indian corn, grains, scarecrows, etc. 

This is OPTIONAL so you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include this in your project.  





THING 2:  Double Dare
