WELCOME to Challenge #85 - Let the Troubles Begin 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, May 31st  thru Sunday, June 6th
"Something, Anything, Everything"  

THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "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, "Let's celebrate 'Yoyo Day'! Yoyos have had their ups and downs (tee-hee).  There are so many ways to celebrate and you don't need a Yoyo. Use your imagination to create a fun project and let your creativity run wild using a Yoyo trick to inspire you. Let us know in your post which Yoyo trick you selected for your inspiration." 

Here is a list of the most popular Yoyo tricks: 
Walk the Dog, Walk the Cat (include a dog or cat)
 The Sleeper, Rock the Baby (baby card)
Around the Corner (park), Around the World (vacation or travel)
Shoot the Moon (Outer Space)
Three-Leaf Clover, Pin Wheel (using images)  

Or Check YouTube for tutorials on 50 other YoYo tricks
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.  

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.  

See Double Dare's Triple Dare at the bottom of the post and participate in our Special Bonus YoYo Dare. Random draw prize $40 of CTMH products if we have 10 participants.

What a fun twist of YoYo Tricks! Loved seeing the DT work and finding out what trick they were highlighting. I esp love Donna's awesome card with the embossed globe background and vintage biplane. Fabulous!!
Thank you for another fun challenge!!

Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team. I have used all 3. My Yo Yo is Around the world (travel) and I have combined with Try Stampin or Not on Tuesday.

I am disappointed that there were not more people entering your bonus YoYo photo challenge. I had soooooooooooo much fun digging out an old yoyo and watching my tiny grandson play with it! <3 <3 <3

It was super-nice of you to offer this bonus challenge with such a lovely prize if there was enough participation. Oh, well...I very much enjoyed participating, anyway. So thank you for it.

Was hoping for more participation; and thought with the $40 CTMH random prize for 10 participants would be an incentive. We will probably in the future have other ridiculous fun challenges like this, so watch for them. Thanks KelliAnne and Janis for your participation. Janis hope you encourage your grandson to bring yoyo-ing back in his generation... it's a fun toy.
