Can you clarify... do we need to do something creative with the alphas or use more than a certain number?  I use alphas on every layout for my title, but I'm assuming that's not what you are talking about.

I'll go back and clarify in my original post.... but I want you to use lots of alphas.  Not going to set a limit, but maybe dig out some of the older ones hiding in your stash and add them to some new ones...  I would like to see at least 2 different alphas used....

I have almost those exact letters in my stash.  I can imagine a lot of creativeness using 2 different types.

I have two 12x12 containers and one smaller one full of alphas and partial alphas etc.  Some go back to the turn of the century even. (2000 that is)    Fun challenge.

Here's mine for the Use Your Stash Challenge using 2 or more old alphas. I used old Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon Alpha Stickers. Image

Forgot to mention I combined with the Size Matters Challenge.
