(Steel) Drum Roll, Please

The time is finally here! Drum roll, please……

Steel Drums, of course!

Last Monday I announced a fabulous giveaway here at The Tiki Hut, sponsored by CSN and today is the day I get to announce the lucky winner!

I have one thing to say before we get started, Holy Guacamole! There were 204 comments left, so I take it all ya'll loved the prize I chose? Had I known I would have ask less questions (note to self), because I had to print them all out, cut them all up and then find something to use as the hat, because they definitely didn't fit in the sunhat I had planned to use. After a couple of options, I finally emptied one of my hatboxes ( I love storing stuff in pretty hatboxes) and poured them all in.




Plenty of room in here! Next I ask Sister to help me out with this photo shoot.

She was happy to oblige (she tolerates my obsession with blogging) as long as I only focused on her hands. She's done this before when I was taking a photography class; she is my official hand model. Thanks, sis! So, here she is reaching in……

Mixing things up a bit (hence the blurry photo).
 
The lucky winner! Let's get a close up shot of that, please…

 




Whoo hoo! I wish I had a backpack to give to each and every one of you, but Kathy @ Emptynester is our winner for this giveaway. I know that she is going to LOVE this prize, she and her hubby are always heading out for day trips and she posts wonderful photos. Be sure to visit her blog and see all the fabulous adventures she takes us on.

Update: After Molly's comment (I really wish I could give everybody one of these) I thought I would post the link to CSN's Tailgating Party Store where I found this fabulous backpack. This link will take you to the backpack picnic cooler section, where they have eight to choose from!

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with CSN, but I hope to in the near future — They have the coolest stuff!

It couldn't have gone to a nicer woman...well except me maybe.
By the way I am a total 60's music freak and this is the only song I have ever let play on a blog. I always shut them off.
I have a hysterical link for an oldie if you are interested.

The song I left playing was Pipeline by the way.

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
