Double Trouble Crazy Cousin + Brianna's 3rd Grade Portrait Layout

My final challenge as Double Trouble's Crazy Cousin guest designer is "Anything Goes," with an optional twist of using something new I found under the Christmas tree, so I decided to scrapbook my daughter's third grade school portrait using my new papers and embellishments from the Echo Park Teen Spirit collection.

WELCOME to Challenge #46 - Let the Troubles Begin! 
"SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing"
  
THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "It's time again to grab your bone folder and stuff, and create something new. We think this is easier than folding a fitted sheet! It's time to use '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, "Out with the old, In with the NEW:  Use that new crafting item you found under the tree or in your stocking or create a project about something new - New Year, new baby, etc.  

This is an OPTIONAL TWIST but you will be awarded an additional chance in Double Trouble's random draw if you include either of these twists in your project.




THING 2: Double Trouble 
dares you to multiply the fun and link up your project with any of our previous partner(s) listed below for extra chances to our Random Draw. Make sure you read their guidelines carefully and observe their dates. We don't want you to get into Trouble with them. 

This means: each time you link to a previous partner with the same card, you gain an additional chance for each partner challenge you entered. Please make sure you identify them in your blog along with our Double Trouble link.






And Crazy Cousin (that's me) says: "Here's a link to the list!"

Your Echo Park choice of papers and embellishments to make up your page of your pretty daughter is so bright and cheery, the selection of papers and colors brought out her personality from the photo. Beautifully done and thank you so much for the nice write up for Double Trouble's Challenge and your contribution as our Crazy Cousin for the December challenges.
