Welcome Baby - Double Trouble Challenge #45 Something, Anything, Everything

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #45 "Something, Anything, Everything" using the Twisted Sister's optional twist of "Something New". I decided to go with a new 5 x 7 Box Die, a Christmas gift from my daughter, and included the second optional twist of "New Baby".

This is a 5 x 7 box card which has an array of several items hidden; but when pulled open it creates a dimensional box full of baby items. Started out using die cuts from Cricut since I didn't have any stamps or dies of baby items.

Since we were doing a family weekend at my son and son-in-law's cabin I was restricted for time on my Cricut and asked my daughter if she had any stamps and/or dies on baby items that could be borrowed. She did...and can you believe it, this adorable set had not been used yet, and no longer available because they have gone out of business. So my Cuttabug made our trip to the Cabin, along with a few items to finish my card.

The morning before breakfast, started to cut some of the cute dies; but my son had other plans for me...curtains. Sooo, my project will have to wait until we get back home.

Still another delay because we decided, upon return home, to pick up our new adopted kitty (Cleo); however, she was an adorable distraction throughout the rest of the day so wasn't able to finish my project until 11:30 Sunday evening, and just completed my post this morning.

Here are additional photos that open up to the pop of all the baby items used for the box.  Let me know what you see. 


Please join us at Double Trouble for this fun challenge "SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing" 

THING 1:  Trouble Maker
says, "It's time again to grab your bone folder and other 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, "Out with the old! In with the NEW!  Use a new crafting item you either found under the tree, in your stocking or a fairly new item you purchased but have not used, and don't forget to let us know what it was you used; 
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.

My Share with Previous Partnering Challenges:  Sharing with a previous partner was a real challenge due to the holiday and the only previous partnering challenge was 2CraftyCritterCrazies; but they had closed before our challenge went live. I will try at the The Crafter's Café even though there were no noticeable C's in the project I did have "I spy with a little eye something starting with C" (Cheek on elephant, Circles on Balloon and maybe the "c" in Welcome).  Let me know if you C more than I C with your little eye.
