March Charades Contest

Here we go again - it's Charades Time!!

How it works: Each photo below stands by itself to represent a TOP 100 MOVIE from the 1970s.  There's eight movies in total.
The rules: You need to guess the movie titles – and make sure they ARE the correct titles - for each one.

The prizes: The first person to correctly guess all eight songs will receive a selection of my newest gift cards, bookmarks, and magnets like these. Then a second winner will be selected by random number generator from all comments submitted. The prize? A $20 gift certificate toward anything in my shop.

Want to increase your odds? You can be entered in the drawing up to four times: (1) Take your guesses in one comment (only one guess entry per person), (2) In a separate comment, tell me your favorite image from one or more of these shops, (3) In a separate comment, tell me you signed up to follow my blog (or that you already follow), (4) In a separate comment, tell me you became a fan (or that you are already following) of my facebook page:  (More than four comments from the same person will not be counted.)

This contest will run for ONE WEEK ONLY. The drawing will be held on Monday, March 8.

  2. Wow, Jodi! Welcome back,you talented person, you. You got ALL BUT ONE! I'm not going to say which one, that would make it too easy. Thanks for visiting.

  3. Sorry, Jodi. You get only one chance. :(

    (Clue #1: You were right the first time.)

  4. Okay, here I go:
    1 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

  6. Congratulations, Jessica - you got it!! You'll receive a special gift from me, and you'll also be entered in the drawing for the gift certificate.

    Did you figure out that the "Kramer vs. Kramer" divorce papers were mine? Irreverent I suppose, but my divorce was so long ago that I'm no longer emotional about it. I always got a kick out of it that a movie had the same title as my divorce papers!

  7. YAY! I am so excited! I will send you my address!

  8. I was a little slow on the uptake, but it was fun all the same. Please enter my comment for a chance to win.

  9. I like the Liquid Blue Iris 3 Photograph

  10. Oh darn, Felicia, I have been so busy I missed the game!

  11. Hi everybody - thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Shia, I think everybody must be crazy busy - so few comments so far, and I'm only running the game for one week this time.

  12. So, does that mean we others can't put the list as the first entry?

    Or just put my name in the list

  13. Entry 2: I like #1 the most! Love birds nests!

    You make such tough giveaways. But there are fun!

  14. Abby - Sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake, as they say. Rest assured that starting with next month's Charades I am going to make some changes that will help the situation you mention. This has been a learning process for me, so I'm glad you all are hanging in there with me. Thanks!

  15. Please add me to the draw!
    I love photo #6! The tango. Sexy.
    Thanks for another month!

  16. Hmm, I think this one is actually EASIER than previous charades- if I'd shown up in time,I would have guessed them right! But alack, life has kept me away from my blogroll.

    Still, I AM a follower, if a slack one- and I still think this is one of the most fun contests in blogland!


  17. Sorry, Carapace, that you didn't get a chance to guess. But thank you for the compliment!


I'm interested in what you have to say. Join the discussion:
