Paper Issues Blog Hop Give-Away WINNER! Week 1

Ok I had a VERY HARD TIME with this. 
1. I wanted to be super fair and impartial.
2. I tried and FAILED to learn how to use to pick from both my followers AND the comments.
What to Do?
Daddy-O and Miss Lola came to my rescue.  As truly impartial pickers (neither reads my blog) (ZING!) they volunteered (were cajoled) to pick one of you wonderful readers as the winner for my first give-away ever!
Some pix:
The names all get written on a piece of paper- new followers get 1 extra name in the mix. 
Lola's Easter basket does double duty. (Try to say THAT twice)
Trial run with Kashi so Miss Lola gets into "picking mode".
She's going in!
AAARGH! Several names are chosen- DISASTER!
Daddy steps in for final pick (he put all the names back in except one).
We have a WINNER!
Congratulations VANILLA CARMEL!!!!!!! Please email me your info: hernandm1-at-yahoo-dot-com (had to write it out because- get THIS- I'm now getting spam email from dating services all over the world! WOO HOOOO!) and the package will be on it's way over to you.
