I'm holding you for ransom!!

Welcome to the ABC Ransom Blog Hop, 
hosted by Red Carpet Studio!

If you've come from Sandra's blog, you're in the right place.

The Red Carpet Studio designers thought it would be fun to host a mystery blog hop while showcasing projects that can be made using all those leftover letters in your stash - hence where the "ransom" comes in. Ransom notes play a huge role in mystery/suspense films, and are often created out of random letters cut from magazines, newspapers, etc. in order to disguise handwriting. 

While we won't be doing any kidnapping or holding anybody ransom today - we do have some creative projects to share with you!

For my project using leftover letters in my stash, I created  a layout featuring the little brown eyed girl.  I have a drawer full of leftover alphabets and am glad to use them in this layout.  Here, I used similar numbers to create 2005.  Along the bottom edge I wrote out "the 2 of us," you can't see US too well. It's covered by the flowers.

OF from left over letters...note the pretty layers, just under the key is a beautiful envelope lining.  My mom sent it to me so I could use it in a creation.
I used type writer letters to write "once upon a time"

I loved how I tucked the stamped birdbath under all the layers.  Check out the lady playing peek-a-boo on the right.  What you don't see is she's holding a peacock.  

We're also holding some blog candy ransom! However, the blog candy is hidden, and only certain stops of the hop are hiding it. The only way you can win is if you comment on those blogs! Now, we're not going to tell you whose blogs those are (that would be too easy) but we will tell you what the prizes are!

And don't forget to check out this week's challenge at Red Carpet Studio! Our challenge this week is inspired by "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and the challenge is to create any fall or Halloween card.

Your next stop is Dawn's blog. 

P.S. My letter is A

If you can put all the letters together from each stop of the hop (they're in order), you have a chance to win a mystery prize! Once you've figured out our hidden message, email it to The mystery prize winner will be announced with the other winners on Sunday November 4th. HINT: The message is a clue as to what our next layout challenge will be. :)
