    Day 3 Theme & Giveaway: “Young Love”

    Filed under Cat's Away... 2011, Giveaways, Sale

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

    Hey, it’s Day 3 of the “While the Cat’s Away…” Giveaways! And today’s theme is “Young Love” (I know, kinda pink and girlie for me). Beside clicking on the photo at right to see even more details of today’s kit, check out the sweet shrine (below) by Design Team Member Laura Carson that started this whole theme going (shown with the door closed and open; click on both pics for larger photos).

    Beside all the lovely pinkness & hearts shown in the larger photo, I’m including the same masonite shrine kit (Baroque Door Shrine Kit) that Laura used in her artwork (which means that shrine kit is on sale, too).

    (If you wander over to the sale area (right now… before it gets changed for tomorrow’s Giveaway) you will see a sea of pink… not normal for my site.)

    Here’s how these themed days will work: I’ve gathered new (and current) items around a theme. All of them are on sale for everyone. And I’ve pulled together a lovely Giveaway Kit made from those goodies that will be awarded to one lucky person.

    To enter the “Young Love” Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post (don’t forget to leave your email address, too, so I can contact the winner; note, your email address does not need to be made public).

    After midnight I’ll randomly pick the previous day’s winner.

    More info on the Holiday Closure & Giveaway Rules (including how you can get entered twice in each day’s drawing).

    Note: all the indented items below are included in the Giveaway Kit. There are some additional (related) things just(!) put on sale that are not in the Giveaway Kit (down at the bottom of this page).
