My tribute back to the peas; kidding. ;) ***GIVEAWAY POST***

**** Boring nostalgic moment ******
(skip it if you find this kinda stuff boring :P but it's not too long anyway so hang in there!)

I've been scrapbooking since late 2007; honestly, I haven't really stopped, but I've breaks in between. I am a major geek, a really really really major one. I am practically glued to the computer 24/7 (though it seems like I've not been active in anything regarding scrapping online)... so its no surprise that the moment I discovered scrapbooking, I discovered TwoPeas too.

I dare not say that I've been a really active Pea.

Sometimes life just get in the way, and you can't expect me to post something on the Peas boards/gallery every single day... and yes it took me quite a bit of time to climb to the almighty 1000th post as a proud Pea, as each user on the message board is affectionately known as. Yes, I have reached the much coveted (okay, not really :P) 1000th post in one and a half year. I definitely wish for more to come. :) - Well, at least I am working on it right now!

I've gotten into small dramas in there before, I am sure every hobby has its fair share of dramas. but it's alright, the pros surely outnumbered the cons. I discovered some friends, as well as some amazing talents/inspirations on 2Peas, and thus, it's payback. :)

******End of boring nostalgic moment********
Yay, now congratulations to you for getting this far! :D

The giveaway....

I pretty much figured that since I live in Singapore, and if I want to send some yummylicious products overseas, the international shipping would probably have killed me; or the shipping costs would have outweight the costs of the goodies itself. That's not good, of course. :P

So, I shall display my inner geek instincts! :D

Instead of me choosing the products, why don't you choose it instead? Sounds good, no? :) And since I am trying to pay it back to the fellow peas who has brought me joy and inspiration in the midst of this hobby, why don't I just pay it back to the community? After much consideration on what I should put on as a giveaway... I finally realized the perfect solution.

A $25 gift certificate for you to shop at TwoPeas!

(Of course I would want to make the value of the gift certificate higher, but pardon me, I am just a struggling student/aspiring web designer who makes money online by designing websites for others - I am guessing I am pretty much an artistically inclined person :D $25 is probably the only spare cash I could afford at the moment - afterall, I already spent most of them away on buying products on Twopeas, yes, I am very guilty!)

So, you wanna ask how you could win that awesome, spankin' $25 gift cert huh? :) Well, let me tell you how... of course there's a few catch here and there, but trust me, nothing major/taxing going on!

To get a chance to win, you just have to do the following things:

- For one chance, you just have to leave a comment on this post.

- For two chances, you just have to blog about this giveaway on your blog and then leave yet another comment to tell me you've already linked me up. :) or be a follower of my blog, and leave a comment yet again so that I can include you in this giveaway (I might miss you if you didn't comment!).

- For three chances, do the above two, then vote for my entry (#4292) over at Prima's Summer Teen Contest 2009, (voting information can be found right there - deadline is on 28th August so you might want to vote fast in case you lose the opportunity to throw in another chance for the giveaway!) and then leave me another comment here yet again telling me that you've already voted for my entry! If you could leave a comment on the original blog post at prima as well!

- For four chances to win, do the above 3 and additionally, spread the word around on other boards as well, if you can! Do remember to leave a comment yet again, leaving me an URL to go check out what you wrote! :)

This giveaway will end on 30th August 2009, and the winner will be announced on this blog on the 31st! The winner will be selected through a random number generator!

This is my first time doing a giveaway and I hope it's not too shabby, of course, I would love to drop you guys some more love when I hit my 2000th post... 5000th post.... 10,000th post.... so on and so forth! :D But I am pretty sure that will be a long way ahead so this should do for now!
