WELCOME to Challenge #163 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, April 1st thru Sunday, April 14th 
"Let's Get Krafty" 


THING  1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Did you know that April 22nd is Earth Day? Some businesses, like McDonald's, have reduced their usage of plastics and are using paper packaging that has been recycled from Kraft paper. Genuine Kraft paper is biodegradable, breaking down within a few weeks as it is absorbed into the environment. Every day should be a celebration of Earth Day, so let's get started now. 

"Next time you're out, swing by McDonald's and consider creating a project using an item made from one of these biodegradable, recycled materials. If that does not appeal to you, then let's go with something from your stash - Use Kraft paper, Kraft colored cardstock, a brown paper bag, corrugated cardboard, or any product made from Kraft-type paper."

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


THING  3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Did you know, that Planet Earth is often referred to as "The Blue Planet" because from space the planet appears blue? This is the effect created by 71% of the Earth being covered with water. As Earthlings, we recognize there are many other beautiful colors, and while you may include other colors in your project, my optional twist is to focus on shades of blue. Also, please mention in your personal post how the photo may have motivated you to create your project."  

Optional Twist:  If you have focused on including shades of blue in your project you will earn another chance in our random drawing.




THING  2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to include Kraft-type paper and mentioned in your personal post how you were inspired by Inspiration Station's Prompt #60you are eligible to enter your project HERE

This is no April Fool's joke... use their photo prompt of the Earth to energize your creativity and then tell us about it in your personal post."  

This will qualify you for an additional chance in our random drawing. "Try to leave the Earth a better place than when you arrived.” -- Sidney Sheldon
Inspiration Station Special Notes:  April 1st is the start of Inspiration Station's monthly challenge and their challenge runs through April 30th. Our partnership for this challenge will end on April 14th so Double Trouble can remain on schedule.

"Pinch Proof"  


THING  1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Did you know, as the tradition goes, wearing green on Saint Patrick's Day is supposed to make you invisible to leprechauns? They will pinch you when you come upon their radar if you don't wear green!

"Ouch! Make yourself 'Pinch Proof' by using green in your project. Your project does not have to be for St. Patrick's Day... you may celebrate any occasion but must include the color green".   

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

THING  3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Good ole St. Paddy's Day is all about findin' the Pot o' Gold... be it in a pint o' beer, or at the end of a rainbow. My optional twist is to include a "touch o' gold" on your project plus one more item from our partner's Inspiration List."

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw prize if you include gold. 
THING  2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to include green, have included a "touch o' gold" and have added one more Thing from the Festive Friday's Inspo List, you are eligible to enter your project HERE at Festive Friday's Challenge #154 and you will qualify for an additional chance in our random drawing."

 

Special Notes:  Festive Friday's Inspiration List is to inspire you! You need only to incorporate THREE of their items in your project and let your creativity flow! And guess what? Your project doesn’t have to be about St. Patrick's Day – at all! The selected festivity is just a unique way to come up with a fun and interesting project from their inspiration list!
