"Talk Like A Pirate Day" Blog Hop and Treasure Hunt

Ahoy, Mateys! Welcome t' me first blog hop w/ me fellow bento blogging wenches. It's "Talk Like A Pirate Day" and what better way t' carry on than w/ a Bento Booty Treasure Hunt Giveaway sponsored by Allthingsforsale (the motherload of bento packin' booty!!).

Whiles speakin' o' bento-packin', here is me pirate lunch fer me wee little lasses. Packed w/ plenty o' protein and vitamin c, it's sure t' keep 'em from becomin' scurvy little pirates! And th' chocolate coins be sure t' keep 'em comin' back for more.


So, ready t' find yerself some booty? Here's how t' join in th' hunt for treasure:

Every Blogger Buccaneer in this here Hop has a piece of th' treasure map. You'll need t' collect each piece and put 'em together in th' right order t' find ye treasure. Get yerself some parchment (or print this out: Treasure Map - but be sure to renumber spots 26-27-28 ere ya begin 'cause our map maker had a little too much grog last night!) and a quill t' keep a log of each clue with each number, 'cause there be 39 scurvy pirates running amok with 39 pieces o' th' map t' collect. 37 pieces will guide ye t' th' hidden treasure by spelling out the URL where you can enter to win. There be 2 bonus pieces with th' "secret passwords" t' get two chances t' win some pirate booty!

Don't be a blige rat and miss out as th' giveaway only runs this week only, ending Sunday night (9/23/2012) at midnight EST. Arrrr!

This here's me piece o' th' map:


Best of luck t' ye gettin' th' Bento Booty and should YE be th' lucky winner, be sure t' watch out fer this here feisty little pirate. She just may try t' snatch th' booty right out from under ye! Arrrrrr!!


Well shiver me timbers, is that th' next hop me see? T' carry on with yer hop, just click on th' Blog Hop Button or this here link: BentoLunch . Savvy? (got it?) :)

Thanks dear bro! :) I used a pumpkin cookie cutter to make the pirate sandwich (hence the uncanny resemblance to Cartman... hmmm, new possible lunch theme?!?! nah. Oooh, not for the girls but certainly for you and Jeff!!) so I cut some fruit rollup using just the top of the pumpkin cutter. :)
