Time for a Treasure Hunt!

I was wondering if you would like to have a little fun today and earn a chance at winning some more of Kris' awesome images?!!  Well if 'YES' is your answer then stay tuned. We have one last special birthday event planned for you all.  It is time for a treasure hunt!!!

We have a three word sentence that you need to figure out:

_?_  _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_        _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_          _?_   _?_ !

Every hour for the next 12 hours, you are going to be given a clue to figure out what the letters are.  When you receive a clue, you must go to the store and figure out what letter it is we are looking for.  The last clue will be posted at 7:00 p.m. PDT tonight.  Once you have all the letters and have figured out the sentence, you will need to send me your guess by email (address will be provided in the post at 8:00 p.m. when the last clue is released).

All clues can be found in the 'Birthday' section of the store.  You can click HERE for a direct link to that section.  Once that page appears, you will see sets from that section laid out over two pages (at the bottom right hand side of the page you can click to head to page two).  To help you find the sets I'm looking for, think of each page as having four columns and twelve rows.  Each clue will send you to find a letter in one of the set names appearing in the 'Birthday' section. I will tell you which page you need to be on, the column number, and the row number and then have you count across from the left to find the correct letter you need to fill in the blank.  Please note that when I refer to a column number, I will be counting from left to right.  For rows, I will count top to bottom.

Just to make sure you understand, I'm going to walk you through the process, which will give you your first letter.

Clue #1 
  1. Click HERE to go to the 'Birthday' section of the store.
  2. Make sure you are on the FIRST page in the section.
  3. Find the set that is in ROW 2, COLUMN 3.
  4. What is the TENTH letter in the first word of the set name?  Take that letter and write it down.  This is your first of twelve letters.

Now to make sure that you did it correctly, you should have found the set called, "Triceratops Balloons".  The tenth letter of the first word is a 'P'.

_P_  _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_        _?_  _?_  _?_  _?_         _?_   _?_ !

You now have one of your blanks filled in.  Just eleven more letters to collect!

 Ready to Start?
A new clue will be released every hour on the hour until all clues are finished. So, be sure to come back at 9:00 a.m. for your next clue!
Now don't worry, if you aren't around for the day, or perhaps sleeping, or if you live in a different part of the world, that is okay too. You will have until 3:00 p.m. PDT on Thursday, to complete the treasure hunt and email me your answers. We want to make sure that all of our readers have the chance to participate.

What is a Treasure Hunt without prizes?! Everyone who gets the three word phrase correct and sends their guess by email will have a chance to win one of the Kits/Bundles located in the store HERE.  There are 16 in total to choose from including the Dinosaur Party Bundle which was released especially for our Birthday Celebration (preview featured below). All correct entries will be placed into a draw and one person will win ONE kit/bundle of their choice from the selection offered!  To make things fair for everyone, we ask that you please NOT leave your guess in a comment.  Simply email your guess to the address provided at the end of the hunt.

We look forward to seeing you participate!!! 
Be sure to come back at 9:00 a.m. PDT for your next clue.
