WELCOME to Challenge #87 - Let the Troubles Begin 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday,  June21st thru Sunday, July 4th
"It's Hip to Be a Square"  


Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Twisted Sister has often referred to me as being square and I tell her 'It's Hip to Be a Square'.  She tells me it's better to be a circle because it's cool and groovy.  We are asking you to use squares or circles or a combination of both and let us know whether you are square, groovy, or both. 

You can stop here... 
OR  

Talking about squares and circles, our partner for this challenge has a great sketch you may want to use for your squares, or modify by using a mix of squares and circles as long as the basic sketch is visible in your project and you will receive another chance at our random draw.  You may also feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. 

AND/OR
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Trouble Maker, since you're the, ummm, Boss, you need to know I have been spinning in circles looking for an optional twist. Oh, wait, there it is! Ummm, Boss... Emboss! Let's include ummm-bossing on our project.  

It's hot and dry here in Arizona... So if you want to Beat the Heat use Dry Embossing; or if you want to Beat the Cold use Heat Embossing; or use both... it's your choice.  

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, "If you have used Try Stampin' on Tuesday's sketch #512 you are eligible to enter your project even if you have or have not used our optional twist to include embossing.  Click HERE to enter.  

Please note that Try Stampin' on Tuesday starts on Tuesday, June 21st... so, if you post your project at Double Trouble on Monday, June 20th, you are still eligible to enter your project.
