Challenge #167 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, May 20th thru Sunday, June 2nd
"Double Trouble 6th Anniversary Raffle"  


THING  1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "May 25, 2018, was our first challenge, and here we are celebrating our Sixth Anniversary. We have appreciated your participation in our challenges over the past six years so to show our appreciation we are having a Celebratory Raffle Event. I also have my brown bag handy in observance of National Brown Bag-It Day, which happens to fall on May 25th so as soon as I eat my bagged lunch we will begin the raffle.

"This was a delicious corned beef sandwich! I have my brown bag ready for the celebration. First, let's place the raffle tickets in the bag then give the bag a shake. Next, it's your turn to pick a Celebratory Raffle Category for your project by picking a raffle ticket. So let the celebration begin!" 

        1. Anniversary or Wedding (Yellow Ticket)
        2. Father's Day or Special Male (Blue Ticket) 
        3. Birthday or New Born (Pink Ticket)  
        4. Graduation  (Green Ticket)  

"After picking a Raffle Category, enter your project in that particular Raffle Color. Scroll down until you see your Raffle Color and Category and enter your project there. To be eligible for the random drawing please take care by linking your project properly."

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, "I joined Trouble Maker for lunch with my PB&J sandwich in a brown bag and was so interested in our 6th Anniversary Raffle that I decided to use my own brown bag for one of the Celebratory Raffle Choices. My optional twist is to use Kraft paper, Kraft-colored cardstock, a brown paper bag, or any product made from Kraft-type paper in your project.  Kraft can be used in any of these categories and is a perfect accompaniment to any combination of colors and/or patterns."
Optional Twist:  If you have included Kraft or Kraft-type paper in your project you will earn another chance in our random drawing. 

THING  2:  Double Dare 
says, "I dare you to multiply the fun by linking your project with any previous partner(s) and you will qualify for extra chances in our random drawing. 

"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 will earn an additional chance. Please identify each of them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link."                         

"In addition to the Top Three selections from the total of all cards, there will be one randomly drawn winner in each category, so increase your chances for a prize by creating multiple projects for your favorite Raffle Category or create projects in more than one category. Just be sure you post each project as a separate entry.  For each raffle, you can create up to four projects"

WELCOME to Challenge #166 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Monday, May 6th thru Sunday, May 19th 
"Stash and Trash"  


THING  1:  
Trouble Maker 
says, "I was just looking at the May calendar and came across Lost Sock Memorial Day.  It's a day to recognize any unmatched socks that are never thrown away.  As I read how to observe this special day it was suggested that we should conduct a brief search and then get on with our lives.

With my unmatched socks in hand, I headed into my favorite crafting space and conducted a brief search. During my search, I pulled out some items to include in my project and at that time made the decision to get on with my life. Now it's your turn to get on with your life. Go through your stash for unused or unmatched materials to include in your project. In your personal post, you must mention the item(s) you used.

Oh, by the way, save those crafting scraps because you may need them for future challenges - but you can toss those unmatched socks in the trash or save them for Odd Socks Day in November.                 

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, "Hey! Have I got a twist for you! I think it would be fun to use this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and use those unused items or unmatched papers from your stash.  My optional twist is to use Sketch #756 for an additional chance in our random drawing. 

"Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may vary the shapes and add a sentiment as long as the basic sketch is recognizable in your project."  

Optional Twist:  If you have used this sketch you will earn another chance in our random drawing. 

THING  2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's requirement to create a project to include unused items or unmatched papers from your stash and have used Tuesday Morning Sketch #756 you are eligible to enter your project HERE and you will qualify for an additional chance in our random drawing.                            

Special Notes: Please note that the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #756 starts on Tuesday, May 7th. If you post your project at Double Trouble on Monday, the 6th, you are still eligible to enter your project at Tuesday Morning Sketches

You are permitted to backlink for that Monday only... so be sure to visit again on Tuesday so you can post your card to the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge using the link provided above.

You can stop here

add fun to our Cinco de Mayo party.  In addition to the three colors, if you include any one of the images on the notebook we are offering an additional random draw prize for those entrants only.
