Wanna' Kiss Edward?


Hi. I'm Kandis.

I love playing in Karlene's blog parties. I almost always win something! I was a sponsor of her Eclipse movie release party and that was tons of fun.

I don't have a blog so Karlene is posting for me here.

I have a freakin' awesome prize for you.

(I know it's awesome because I already have one for myself!!!)


And my door prize is...


YES!

The Breaking Dawn Calendar!!!

I know! See? Freakin' Awesome, right? (And yes, you can kiss your very own calendar photo page of Edward.)

(Or Jacob.)

(Seriously, you know you want to.)

Okay, here's what you have to do to win it. Answer this question:

Who is the minister that marries Edward and Bella?


E-mail the correct answer (no googling; you have to look it up in the book) AND your full name and mailing address to bellasshower@gmail.com. Put "KANDIS" in the subject line.

That's it! Easy as kissing Edward, right? (Although, I confess. I'd rather be kissing Jacob. *sigh*)

And guess what? Your email also automatically enters you for the GRAND PRIZE. Three entries!

You can also get extra entries for the Grand Prize if you tweet or facebook or do whatever to spread the word. Details here.

There are more awesome prizes being given away too—other sponsors and some daily game prizes. (I'm gonna' win me some of those!)

So go check out Inksplasher to get the full deets for everything.

Good luck!

Win Some of Renesmee's Favorite Activity Books!


Miles Ahead Learning Resources doesn't have a blog, so I'm posting the prize info and question for Bella's Totally Awesome Bridal/Baby Shower here.

A similar post will go live on Inksplasher on Friday, November 11th, but this post lets you get a head start on our prize!




Renesmee Cullen

So what do you do with a half human/half vampire daughter that ages years in just a few short weeks?

You certainly can't send her to public school, can you? Renesmee Cullen is one little girl that's going to have to be home schooled!

But where are two very busy vampiric parents going to find quality materials to help with that?

At Miles Ahead Learning Resources, that's where!

Miles Ahead specializes in reproducible activity books that reinforce learning for all age groups—math, science, language arts, logic, and more!





TO ENTER TO WIN THIS PRIZE:
  1. If you're not already a follower of Inksplasher, my personal blog, go click the link to follow me. Then leave a comment on any of Bella's Shower Posts telling me you're a follower.

  2. Visit the Miles Ahead website and choose the three Down Under Reproducible workbooks you'd like if you win.

  3. Send an email to bellasshower@gmail.com. Put "Miles Ahead" in the subject line. List the three titles you'd like to have and include your name and mailing address so I can ship those books to you if you win.

DEADLINE: Midnight, November 19, 2011.

OPEN TO U.S. ENTRIES ONLY.

All Miles Ahead emails will be entered to win the prize. Winner will be chosen using www.random.com and announced Monday, November 21st.

About Miles Ahead:

It got lost when Rosehaven folded, but I'm bringing it back. It will eventually feature the many curriculum aids I've created over the years as downloadable pdf files. In the meantime, I have these awesome reproducible workbooks!
