Cottege Grove Caches

I was inspired by two different wonderful scrappers for this layout.

Tiffany,  Breakfast @ Tiffany's is doing a twenty minute challenge
and Chas is DT at Red Carpet Studios where they're hosting an ABC ransom hop

I got this LO done this morning after the youngest went to preschool.  Seems like the only time I have to create now is when everyone is at school and preschool only last 2 hours.  With driving back and forth, throwing in a few loads of laundry and checking out the latest post that really only leaves a little bit of time.

Glad I'm pushing myself to keep it to 20minutes or I'd never get anything done.  Fortunately this layout was easy to put together as all the elements came together in a kit I inherited from my wonderful Aunt Diane.
So no time spent searching for matching embellishments or coordinating papers.
 The title is a mix match of colors, but all the same style and brand so not as creative as Chas with four different alpha, but still using up letters that otherwise would just sit in my stash.  the whole blog hop has different ideas for using extra letters on layouts.

even did the same thing with the numbers on the chip board tags that correspond with the journal points


  1. I feel so special since you used my hop as inspiration. The colors of your alphas matches perfectly with your layout.

  2. Boy I can relate about fitting your crafting time in when you can!!! You did an awesome job!!!

  3. Such a sweet page this is, lovely colours! Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend, Ira x
