I think it's going to be a snowier winter in Missouri than it has been in the past.   My grandkids in St. Louis already had a snow day in the middle of November.    I'll enter this in two blog challenges.

I used the "SCRAP OUR STASH"  December Golden Globe challenge.    I created a winter layout and used snowflake embellishments on my layouts.    Everything on my layout is old from my stash with the exception of my snowflake embellishments.   Everything else I have had for years and I used up scraps too with the matting on my pictures.

Here is the link to  "SCRAP OUR STASH"  for the challenge.


I used the challenge #16 at   "DOUBLE TROUBLE"  for my 2nd entry with this layout.   It was also perfect to go with my wintery layout.     Here is all the details.   For THING 1 - Trouble Maker I used heat embossing for the snow on my tag.    For THING 2 - Twisted Sister I have snow in my pictures, snowflake embellishements and in all my paper and a snowman on my tag I added.

Here is all the information for the "DOUBLE TROUBLE" Challenge.
HING 1 Trouble Maker
says you have one more chance to finish your winter/holiday cards/projects in time for mailing. Create a project using at least one form of embossing... dry embossing, heat embossing, embossing paste, your choice. Or use them all! 

THING 3 Twisted Sister
says, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!" Include snow, snowflakes, a snowman, etc. on your project. 

Hint: If you include a coffee/tea/cocoa image or sentiment, 
you may  join in the fun at 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Time is limited on the Coffee Blog Hop so read the details below. 

Both of these are OPTIONAL twists so why not double the trouble and include both? You will be awarded an additional chance for participating in each twist in Double Trouble's random prize draw. 

THING 2 Double Dare 
says if you have created a winter holiday themed project you can also join the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge #21.  To post, click HERE any time during the month of December. This gives you an additional chance at winning the Double Trouble Random Draw. 

A Double, Double Dare - Don't forget! If you used a coffee, tea or cocoa theme or sentiment, you are eligible to enter the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop through December 7th. The details are below. To post your project, click HERE.


Plus I'll also enter this layout at the  "THREE AMIGOS"   Challenge #21 since this is a winter themed project.
