Giveaway #11: What The Fruit?

Okay, girls and boys! It’s time for another Giveaway. The first ten Giveaways have all been about leaving a comment to win. This time, I’m going to make you work for it, LOL! But, hopefully, it will be a fun work out. The main prize in this Giveaway is a brand new ProvoCraft ‘Preserves’ Cricut cartridge. In addition, you’ll win a surprise package of luscious embellishments and crafting goodness. Trust me, it’s worth your effort.

So, this is how it works. Since ‘Preserves’ is predominantly a cartridge about sweet, juicy fruits, the key to being the winner of this Giveaway is your ability to identify some ripe and plump fruits that grow in trees and bushes. Problem is, someone dropped the tray and the fruit is now a mixed salad of letters. For instance, if I gave you the following string of letters, “real me town“, a sharp cookie would realize that if you moved a few letters around–you’d spell “watermelon“. So, to win this Giveaway, all you have to do is identify the ten fruits on the list below. The winner will be the person who can unscramble the most pieces of fruit. If more than one person gets all of them correct, they will all be placed in a random draw to determine the winner. So, it behooves you to not share your answers. To enter this contest, please send your answers (via the e-mail link in the sidebar) to me by the deadline of Saturday, July 31, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. MST. (Please do not post any answers in the comments.)

01. poem at range

02. affirm like

I hope you all have as much fun playing with this as I had putting it together. Get out your spy glass, a sharp pencil, a good eraser…and play. As alway, thank you for continuing to play my games, visiting my blog and sharing of yourselves.
