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

If you've come from Georgie'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...


I had some sparkly left over letters that were given to me from a girl at work, so I took the challenge literally.... I added the "i" and the 'u" ( note this was a upside down n) and then randomly used the other letters to fill in my card.  I used a small Spellbinders heart to make the heart die cut.  It took 4 layers to make it the same size as the letters.  I coloured them with red Copic and then Kindyglitz in red.  Finished with a red flower

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!

There will be three winners. Please make sure to leave your contact information when commenting so we can contact you if you win. You have until next Saturday, November 3rd, to hop and comment. Winners will be announced with the start of our next layout challenge on Sunday November 4th at Red Carpet Studio.

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 Tonya G's blog. 


P.S. My letters is... N

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 redcarpetstudiochallenge@gmail.com. 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. :)

I'm entering this card into the Moxie Fab World Alphabet stickers challenge.

Such a shinny card, great way to use up your left over letters, I just did the same thing with the letter N in my last laoput on my blog. I also needed a U so I just turned the N upside down.
