This month I was asked to be the Crazy Cousin Guest Designer at Double Trouble. This is my third challenge with Challenge #85.

THING 1: Trouble Maker says, “It’s time again to grab your bone folder and other crafty stuff and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It’s time to use the stuff you have in your stash (new and/or old).”

You can stop here…

OR, you can choose to include Twisted Sister’s Optional Twist below to earn additional chances at our random draw.

THING 3:  Twisted Sister says, “Let’s celebrate ‘Yoyo Day’! Yoyos have had their ups and downs (tee-hee).  There are so many ways to celebrate and you don’t need a Yoyo. Use your imagination to create a fun birthday theme and let your creativity run wild using a Yoyo trick to inspire you. Let us know in your post which Yoyo trick you selected for your inspiration. Here is a list of the most popular Yoyo tricks: Walk the Dog, Walk the Cat (include a dog or cat) The Sleeper, Rock the Baby (Baby card)Around the Corner (park), Around the World (Vacation)Shoot the Moon (Outer Space)Three Leaf Clover, Pin Wheel (Using images)This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble’s random draw if you include this twist in your project.  

THING 2:  Double Dare says, “I dare you to multiply the fun by linking your project with any previous partner(s) listed on their website. You will qualify for extra chances in our Random Draw.  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 gain an additional chance. Please identify each of them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.  

Bonus Yoyo Twist:  
Double Dare triple dares you to join our Bonus Yoyo Twist.  Take that Yoyo out of storage and have your family play a little.  Take a photo and enter your photo, or a past Yoyo scrapbook page (backlink acceptable), and you will be entered into an additional random draw prize based on participation. Check YouTube for tutorials on some of the easier Yoyo tricks. Click HERE to enter your Bonus Yoyo Twist.  

I chose to make a birthday card and my Yoyo inspiration is the Gyrosphere.

I remembered I had one of these Circle Spin Cards. I thought the spinning circle reminds me of a Gyroscope. I used the Party Time Paper pack and Sticker sheet. I also used the Wishing You Everything Stamp and Thin Cut. I added a couple of sapphire dots from my stash.

I am linking this card up with CRAFTING HAPPINESS CHALLENGES as they have an anything goes challenge going on.

I hope you will join in the fun! Thank you to the ladies over at Double Trouble for allowing me the opportunity you be a Crazy Cousin! Happy Crafting!
