Payday Paths Envliven

No, I'm not drunk; that's just another anagram for Happy Valentine's Day. Ready for the other two challenges today?

Challenge #2 - In Other Words
I have taken names of scrapbook companies and given them a little twist with synonyms. For instance, Pub Calls might be rewritten as Bar Solicitations. Now granted that some of these may be reaching but work with me here. Okay, here is the list of companies that you need to decipher:

  • A Stimulus Craft Seal
  • FantasyTerrace Sheets
  • Haven Maiden Crop Duds
  • Violet Edible-bulb Patterns
  • Diaphanous Completions & Badges
  • Dabbling Tint
Challenge #3 - Anagrams
Yep, just as it sounds. I have taken the names of other scrapbook companies and rearranged the letters to form other words. Here is the list of companies to unscramble:
  • A grub suing 3
  • Craft corgi
  • Jawed vise
  • Fabric press
  • Safe trikes
  • Pajama throb sunburns jets
  • Sat round mom
  • Reading mint ski spin
  • Spears primp
  • A factor gold usurps
  • A spaced perm pro
Do NOT post your answers here. Send your answers for one or both challenges to pubcalls.birthday@gmail.com. (ETA: Please send your answers to the regular email: Pubcalls@gmail.com) If you get all companies correct, you will be entered in a drawing for these prizes:

Challenge 1
Prize Pack #1 - Scrap Galaxy goodies ($30), Deja Views goodies ($30), and a Those Were The Days kit ($28)
Prize Pack #2 - Book from Layout Blueprints ($25) and a Serendipity Scrapbooks kit ($50)

Challenge 2
Prize Pack #1 - a Simply Cardstock kit ($32), A Muse Art Stamps ($30), and a More Than Scrapbooking kit ($25)
Prize Pack #2 - FOUR kits from The Scrapbook Stand ($100)

If no one gets all the companies correct, I will go with the highest number of correct answers. I will be checking email during the day, and if it looks like we are hitting a roadblock by this evening, I might be convinced to give some clues. But we have some pretty smart scrappers around here, so that might not be necessary. ;)

ETA: There seems to be an issue with the alias account. You can send your answers to the regular account at Pubcalls@gmail.com. Sorry for any problems with email bouncing!

Since I'm relatively new to the scrapbooking world, this is a HUGE challenge for me :) Will try my best.... (I did get one w/out even trying LOL --- must be the 'one' that everybody else is talking about)

(but then, I do not usually have luck when it comes to random draws)
C-H
