21 Months

I love getting these pictures and weekly stories every month since Elle turned a week old.   The first year they took a new picture every week laying on the same blanket and then a picture sitting in this chair every month.   Then after Elle was a year old they went to just a new picture and update posted to Facebook every month.   I hope they do something after she is two also because it is so fun to read these updates "in her words" for each week.

I'm going to enter this layout at  "DOUBLE TROUBLE PAPER CRAFTING"  Challenge #13

I used the number 21 as my lucky number on my layout.   A big die-cut 21 and there is also 21 on the picture.

WELCOME to Challenge #13 - Let the Troubles Begin
Whoopi - there are five Mondays in this month. Time for our 
"Something, Anything and Everything" 

THING 1: Trouble Maker 
For some the number 13 is synonymous with bad luck. It's considered unlucky to have 13 guests at a dinner party, many buildings don't have a 13th floor and most people avoid getting married or buying a house on a day marked by this number. Some superstitious folks even avoid driving on Friday the 13th. 

"Who says the 13th has to be unlucky? And besides it's a Monday not a Friday?" Let's turn it around and join our Double Trouble's Lucky #13 Challenge. Trouble Maker says this is a Free for All challenge so have a little fun creating with "Some Thing", "Any Thing" and "Every Thing". Remember, this is a one-week challenge. 

Twisted Sister agrees #13 can be a lucky number. Include your lucky number on a project. For example, this can be a die-cut, hand-drawn or stamped number, a pair of dice, playing cards, etc. This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but it's so easy that we hope everyone will join in. If you do the twist, Double Trouble will give you an extra chance in our random draw.

Double Dare has more than doubled the fun. Link up your project with any of our previous partners for an additional chance for the Double Trouble random draw.
