Smiley Contest!

In honor of all of our new smilies, I have decided to run a smiley story contest. The winner will receive 1,000 points, their "I won" icon for their award showcase, and these fun prizes:
  • Cinderella Special Edition on DVD
  • Chicken Little for Gameboy Advance
  • Toy Story 10th Anniversary Edition on DVD
  • Cinderella Dollhouse 2 PC game
  • Scooby Doo Ghosts On the Go on DVD
  • Everyday Traditions: Simple Family Rituals for Connection and Comforts (book)
  • Growing Your Own Turtleneck... and Other Benefits of Aging (book)
Wow! What an awesome prize package!!

If the judges find it difficult to pick just one winner, we will choose runner up winners that will also receive code word points and their "I won" icon.

The rules: Contest open from today through November 30, 2005 midnight PST. Everyone may enter, however, only U.S. and Canadian residents qualify for physical prizes that require shipping (sorry!). Winner(s) will be chosen by a panel of judges selected by FamilyCorner.com.

To play: Tell a story by using text and smilies. Wherever you can replace a word with smilies, do so. Try not to duplicate too often. For example:

Quote:
I was on when my husband gave me my . Even though it was outside, I was willing to run naked in the and show everyone what he gave me! I gave him a big and a .
We will be looking for creativity, so start telling a story!

Yes, reply to this thread with your entry. Thanks!

P.S. Caron, can you please shorten the text in your location, I believe that is why the page is too large causing a scroll bar.

Thanks!

mmm, got to put my thinking cap on and I'll be back later.

question, I've before when I've tried to type with alot of icons the post wouldnt' take, so how many are to many? As what I've seen in Teresa post she had no problems, so I hope I don't either.

2) the story can be about anything--Right?

Yes, the story can be about anything that you would like to write about.

I dont think that there is a limit for this contest for smilies.
