Let the Troubles Begin!
This Challenge runs from
Friday, January 18, 2021, thru Sunday, January 31, 2021
THING 1: Trouble Make
says, "National Kazoo Day is January 28th and special to me. Such a fun musical instrument for someone who can't carry a tune in a basket, but, Boy! Could I play the Kazoo... 'I feel a song coming on'! You may want to sing along with Dean Martin while you are creating your project. In celebration of Kazoo Day, let's see your best effort to use music in your project, i.e., instruments, sheet music, musical notes, etc. with paper, dies, embossing, stamps - you name it or sing it."
You can stop here...
OR, you may OPT to use this sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday #490 below - or not. However, it's an excellent sketch in which to incorporate the music theme. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image.
TRIVIA: The original Kazoo Factory was close to my home and kazoos were gifted many times. Family, neighbors, and friends joined in Kazoo-a-longs, parades, and campfire fun. Click on Kazoo Factory for history.
THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "What's a Ka-Zoo? I bet it's a place to see a
Ka-ngaroo or a Ka-oala Bear, or a Ka-kapo... so I'm going to the Ka-Zoo." What child doesn't like to visit a Zoo... great for a birthday card or scrapbook layout... let's see what you create.
The optional twist is to include any zoo animal within our musical theme and earn another chance for the Random Draw.
THING 2: Double Dare
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to "KaZoo-a-long" with our music theme and have used the Try Stampin' on Tuesday #490 Sketch, you are eligible to enter your project at Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE, even if you have not included a Zoo animal.
If you have entered your musical theme card on Monday at Double Trouble and used their sketch you are still eligible to enter your card on Tuesday at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
If you enter their challenge you get another chance for the random draw prize.
