Pretty Little Liars - Secret Keepers Game!



This was a Huge Honor for me and I can't tell you just how hard it's been to keep this a secret for me! Although, by now, I'm sure you all know about The Secret Keepers Game that's going on, which is being sponsored by ABC Family! I wanted to post this as close to the premiere date as I could and well, I couldn't get any closer! Tonight, at 8/7c the very highly-anticipated PRETTY LITTLE LIARS television show will be on! This show is based on the amazingly popular novels of the same name by author Sara Shepard!  I know I will be glued infront of infront of my television because I've been waiting for this for SO LONG!

OK... So, back to ABC Family and ME getting the most amazing letter in my inbox on May 18th!  The letter basically said that I was chosen to be one of the "SECRET KEEPERS" by ABC Family and that if I accepted, I would be able to take part in a three week game PRETTY LITTLE LIAR - style from a mobile phone and a Facebook Page! It also said that we would be getting a package to keep and a sneak peek into the world of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!  We had to respond to a separate website by the 19th, be able to play for the three weeks and give a valid address where we could receive a package.  The rest we would find out when it arrived.  Well, I was just too excited for words! I have LOVED ABC Family since I was a little girl and The PRETTY LITTLE LIAR Novels are one of this girls favorite series! ABC Family encourages the players to speak from their own experience during the game and in NO WAY wants us to SAY that we like the show or ABC just because we are taking part in this game. 

What do *I* have to say so far? That ABC certainly does know their ABC's of marketing and I am LOVING this game! I am playing Spencer Hastings.  I had no idea until the box arrived and because of my situation, I didn't get to open it right away! I'll let you know a little bit more about Spencer in a moment! I got the basic idea on how to show off the Spencer character (not exact, but close enough to give her credit) from Kristi at The Story Siren.  She did a wonderful Job.  I have pictures of MY Box and what was in it, but, I am not going to show my secret item yet! But, I will tell you that ABC Family in the letter told us we would receive a "Smart Phone" to keep which would be deactivated after the game and if we wanted, we could reactivate it in our own name.  Below is the character I'm playing and a little bio about what I'm like! Meet Spencer Hastings!



(Picture and Bio Taken from Official ABC Pretty Little Liars Site)


A classic overachiever, Spencer Hastings balances school, a high-powered internship, charity work, the field hockey team and maintaining uber-popularity status -- all without breaking a sweat. This is the girl who could stand up to Alison when no one else would. But when she and her friends begin receiving mysterious messages from "A," even the calm, cool and collected Spencer starts to show a little strain. And when she develops a forbidden crush on her sister's fiancé you have to wonder if Spencer can keep it together.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Inside my box, there was a gorgeous Pretty Black Collector's Box that said "PRETTY LITTLE LIARS"  Wrapped in plastic! Once I saw it, I didn't want to even open it, it was *THAT* pretty! Then I opened the box and  there was a piece of  plastic that said "SOME SECRETS YOU HAVE TO DIG FOR" - A and if you've read the novels and you get something from "-A" you always know to be VERY AFRAID! So when I lifted the plastic there was potting soil! Yes, an entire box of dirt in my gorgeous box! I did just what it said and I started digging! I found my secret object (which each of us got), and then I found a plastic bag that was sealed and it had a card that said PRETTY LITTLE LIARS blocking what was in it. So, I put that aside and then I found one more plastic bag and it had a charger, and headphones and a manual.  On the lid of the box is the cast who is playing Hanna, Spencer, Aria, and Emily and it's such a beautiful picture! It's the one I posted below!

Once I cleaned up and opend the package with the card, that's when I found out that I was playing Spencer, I had my password and website to go to!  Thanks SO much to Alea of Pop Culture Junkie for helping me! She's on MY team as Hanna and has been nothing but the biggest help ever! It also said to go ahead and look through the phone. When I ever looked down and saw that I had a new iPhone to play with I couldn't believe it! Was it worth sifting through the dirt? You betcha'!




This game has been SO much fun and I want to personally thank ABC Family for having me remain a part of their family! Their marketing skills have definitely gotten MY attention and I hope they've gotten yours! There are four teams playing with four girls on each team! We are given missions to do each day some easy and some very hard! If you do it wrong "-A" reveals a secret about YOU to the whole team! You have to try to get the most challenges correct without making any mistakes. Each day she sends us our missions through a text on the phone! We post on our FaceBook and also on our private FaceBook pages! You may follow me by requesting me over to the left on my FB button! This game runs until June 18th, which is three days after my birthday! Happy Birthday to me...I feel a contest in the air!!

Believe me, there are missions where I may need you to go over to the boards and post about me so that I don't get any secrets revealed and I hope that I can count on my friends to help me! :)

Dont forget to watch PRETTY LITTLE LIARS tonight! In the mean time you can visit them on their Official Website which houses the boards that I was talking about! But I will post a separate link for that! Speaking of links -- Here's the link for the sneak peak of tonight's episode! Happy Watching!

Have fun tonight!! I know I will!

Oh, I know I have some prizes coming up! This does *not have to do with ABC Family or PRETTY LITTLE LIARS! But, since I've almost reached 1,000 followers, I just wanted to say I've got some great things coming up! Including a Nook! So Stay tuned!





KISSES and TOODLES!!

  1. Did you get headphones and a secret object? I only got the phone and charger... I guess a lot of people got secret objects. Weird.

    It's been fun though, some of the tasks are harder than others but I've only let one secret slip :P

  5. Sherry - You definitely should have gotten a secret object. From what I understand, some of the objects were pretty small. Did you sift through the dirt really well? Did you use one of those sifters that little children take to the beach? Try contacting the person that originally contacted you from ABC. You need your object as you can tell for one of the missions! Good luck!

    Anon - I didn't! None of us did! Until I got the letter! My letter stated that they thought I would make a good candidate and that I was chosen to participate by ABC FAMILY! That's why I was SO EXCITED! ALEA from Pop Culture Junkie is Playing, Sherry from Page Flipper above if playing, I know the Story Siren, Green Bean Teen Queen, Trish from Trish's Book Nook and all in all there are 16 of us. Four groups. Each playing a character. So, that's 4 Hanna's, 4 Spencer's, 4 Aria's and 4 Emily's ... One per team if that helps. We each got a box. In each box was a phone. I think some got iphones and some droids, there was headphones and a charger with the manual, and a secret item along with dirt and a gorgeous black box!

    Lady Tink! -- The Books are SO GOOD! One of my very favorite series! You LOVE them! I just finished book 8 last week! I couldn't believe it! I want to discuss it with someone else that's read it!! I'm ready to burst!!

    Trini! Thank you SO MUCH!! xoxx
