Red Carpet Studio ABC Random Blog Hop

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

If you've come from Stephanie J'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 used letters from a leftover Thickers pack, & used them to frame around the girls picture. I just randomly placed them to form the frame.  I used Basic Grey paper, & embellishments, & some random buttons & other embellishments. 
 

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.


Thank you for hopping with us today!  Your next stop is back to Red Carpet Studio's blog to check out this weeks challenge!  It is fantastic as usual, & the DT has lots of inspiration in store for you!


P.S. My letters are... L & E

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. :)

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope that you have enjoyed the hop!
See you back soon!
Have a fabulous day!
