Challenge #338 -Week 1 a Double Trouble Collaboration

Hey everyone!  We have something super special going on for the next two weeks!

We are pairing up with Double Trouble Paper Crafting for a 2 week challenge!  This challenge will go from November 19th until December 2nd.

Here's a bit about our friends Double Trouble!

Welcome to Double Trouble - We're two retired ladies bringing you a new challenge blog where we hope you find fun and inspiration! We're not affiliated with any companies and welcome all participants. Our challenge will include Thing 1-Trouble Maker the Basic Challenge, Thing 2-Double Dare being a surprise element in which you may or may not decide to participate and Thing 3-Twisted Sister, will appear with an optional twist to the Challenge.

When you enter our challenge this week, be sure to run over to the Double Trouble Challenge blog and see what their co-coordinating challenges are!  The more aspects of the challenge you do, the more entries you will receive to win their prize!

This is our part for the challenge, we have a fun mood board to draw your inspiration from! There are lots here, pine, snowflakes, cocoa, some lovely colors, candy canes, Christmas trees and so much more!


The DT "A" group is going to get you started!

Remember to head on over to the Double Trouble Blog and use our image as well as their challenge ideas to create your projects!  Link up to both!  This challenge is going to run for 2 weeks and you can enter as often as you like, as long as you are creating new entries each time. 

Inspired by Thing 2's GLITTER aspect, along with our Moodboard I decided to dig deep in the old stash and use up some of this "Sugar and Spice" glitter paper I had to make a Chirstmas Cookie recipe book.  More pix on blog.

I chose to do Things 1 - making a sweet treat.  There is nothing better than cocoa in my favorite winter mug on a cold day.

I chose to do the Thing 1 challenge of creating a project of a sweet treat along with our Use Your Stuff mood board.  One of the traditions in our family is to make a gingerbread house each Christmas.  I thought that pics of my youngest putting together her sugary masterpiece would be perfect for this challenge.

I chose to use all the challenges: Thing 1's challenge to make a sweet treat for the holidays, Thing 2's challenge to use our mood board and Thing 3's challenge of adding sprinkles too :)


I chose to use all the challenges for this!  Thing 1s challenge of a sweet treat is my sweet holiday drink with the yummy candy cane!  Of course, I have Thing 2s challenge of the mood board which is also the UYS challenge for these next two weeks and then Thing 3s challenge of adding sprinkles is in my glitter paper and stickles!
