light problems

i recently installed 8 plastic overhead boxes with Porcelian Lampholders using the new bulbs that use 14watts apiece. I used 12-3 wire on a 20amp breaker. Every time I try to turn on the breaker it pops. I have the lights on two switches where you can turn on the lights on one side of the room and off on the other side of the room. Can't figure out what I did wrong, any suggestions?

Tell us how you wired the three way switch circuit. There are multiple ways but did you do it this way:
