"Fall Colors - Leafin' It Up to You"  


Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Fall is taking hold... there are colored leaves, yummy apples, and fat pumpkins everywhere There's a nip in the air. This month ends on a spooky note with Halloween - where many of us celebrate with a night filled with fright, costume parties, and traditional good times. 

"I enjoy seeing the variety of trees turning different colors. Let's create a fall and/or Halloween project using at least three or more colors from my beautiful leaf background in the photo on the left sidebar. We are leafin' it up to you and neutrals are free." 

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

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Wow, Trouble Maker, what a colorful pile of leaves! I'm so tempted to jump into them! My favorite fall color is orange so for Halloween, I will be dressing as a pumpkin. I love shuffling through the leaves while going from home to home for treats. For my twist, I'm looking for a pumpkin in your fall and/or Halloween project."

Optional Twist:  If you have included a pumpkin in your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw.





Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to create a fall and/or Halloween project you are eligible to enter your project HERE at Jan's Digi Stamps October Blog Challenge to earn another chance at our Double Trouble random prize."  

Jan's Digi Stamps Prize: You are NOT required to use an image from Jan's Digi Stamps but if you do, your entry goes into a separate drawing for a prize.

"Let's Punch It Out"  



Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "
National Punch Day (Sept 20) is about one of three things. Can you guess which two we are celebrating? 1. A sweet drink that is ladled from a punch bowl, 2. The kind of punch that you dole out with your fists, or 3. a crafting tool?  

"Hopefully, your guesses agreed with mine. So let's include a punched or die-cut element in our project. But first, pour your favorite punch or beverage into a spill-proof container and head to your craft space. Second, look through your stash and pull out at least one punch or die and use it for your project. To earn a second chance in our random draw let us know what beverage you poured into your cup by commenting on either this post or next to our link in your post." 
  
You can stop here... 
OR  
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in our random draw.  


Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Hey, tools are right up my alley and I love working with wood. My optional twist is to include wood or woodgrain on your project.  

"You may want to take this time to refill your cup and then revisit your stash... look through your patterned papers, stencils, embossing folders, dies, wood embellishments, etc. to include wood/woodgrain on your project."

Optional Twist:  If you have included wood/woodgrain on your project you will earn another chance in our random draw. Now be sure to forward on to Double Dare's Dare. 




Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to include a punched or die-cut element and have included wood/woodgrain on your project you are eligible to enter it HERE for the Use Your Stuff #467 theme to use Wood or Woodgrain."

Special Notes:  If you are sharing your project with Use Your Stuff #467 make sure you enter on or before Saturday, October 1st, the last day of their challenge.
