WELCOME to Challenge #108 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, April 18th thru Sunday, May 1st
"Frame It"  

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "How many of us have a Cricut or similar machine that sits idle? Since the world of metal dies has emerged how often do you pull out your Cricut to cut a basic shape? It seems most of us have accumulated some dies and now use a die cutter (Cuttlebug, Big Shot, Gemini). I'm challenging you to select a basic-shaped metal die from your stash and use it on your project, e.g. frame, square, rectangle, triangle for your image and/or sentiment... you get the idea."

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

Note: If you had created your card on the opening of Dies R Us on the 15th, we are allowing any entrants on this challenge to backlink to our challenge, and be eligible for our random draw, providing you have met our Thing 1 requirement.

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister
says, "It isn't difficult for me to pick out a shaped metal die for a frame and/or sentiment but I have accumulated so many other pretty metal dies.

"Mother's Day is around the corner... this is a good time to honor your Mom or someone special who has had an impact on your life. My optional twist is to include flower(s) and/or butterfly(s) on your project. I'm going to use some of my pretty dies, however, if you don't have a floral or butterfly die, just create them using a punch, patterned paper, stenciling, or another technique."

Optional Twist: If you have included flowers and/or butterflies in your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw.
Thing 2:  Double Dare
says, "If you have included at least one metal die on your project you are eligible to enter Dies R Us Challenge #191, 'Spring/Flowers' HERE. Post your entry on or before April 28th and you will be eligible for an extra chance in the Double Trouble random draw. (Their limit is three entries.) 

"If you have used any brand of dies that Dies R Us sells in their store, you will be eligible for another Double Trouble random draw chance. Your die may qualify so click HERE and view the brands on the left sidebar. For a chance in their random draw be sure to notate in your post if you used a die that is sold by DRU."
