1st Blog GIVEAWAY!!!! 'till 11/6/09

Last week, I purchased 3 Vintage Images CDs from PeggyLovesVintage (on Etsy). Peggy has the most adorable vintage graphics from old greeting cards, like these:



I just love them!!
Peggy shipped my package the same day I ordered, and I received them within 2 days afterward. I was so excited to get them and start playing that I hurriedly opened the first one and put it in my laptop CD drive. But I couldn't get it to play for some reason. So I went to try the next one, and that one wouldn't work for me, either. And then I tried the last one, and no luck there, either! Flipping the CD over, I noticed that there wasn't that usual dark ring on the back showing where the data ended- so I thought somehow the CD must not have burned or had gotten erased somehow. So I emailed Peggy, asking if there were any tricks to running the CDs that she knew of. She immediately responded- within an hour or so(!)- and we couldn't figure out the problem, so she sent me 3 of the same CDs the next day while we tried to come up with new ideas on what happened. The next day, I brought the CDs to work with me and tried them here and VOILA! Worked without a hitch!!! I found out she had already shipped the replacements, and I felt just terrible because I should have tried bringing them to work in the first place and saved everyone some panic!! So I told her I would of course pay for the other CDs. However, she said she did not want payment, nor did she want me to send them back- and instead told me to give them away to friends!!

So here is where the giveaway comes in!! The giveaway is for one of the 3 CDs:

Child Birthday Vol. 1
Vintage Christmas Vol. 2
Vintage Valentine Vol. 1

Each CD has over 350 High Quality images! They are all scanned in at 600dpi. If you would like to play, all you have to do is visit Peggy's Etsy store and leave me a comment on which of her items is your favorite!! I will have the random number generator do its thing on 6 Nov., and if you're the winner, you get to pick which CD you'd like to have from the 3 listed above. Good luck!!
