Hey, everyone! As you know, we've been planning yet another contest, and it starts TODAY!
Yaaay! :dummy:


A month ago, our dearest maytel became a mommy. Now, prepare yourself, the next image is overloaded with cuteness and it's too powerful for the weak-minded!!
:love:My little guy by maytel:love:

To celebrate this joyous occasion we planned a contest!
The :bulletpurple:Super Exciting Maytel Inspired - Sweet Win Everyone Enters Themed In Each Style:bulletpurple: Contest!
Or the SEMI-SWEETIES Contest for short.

We want you to make something for maytel. Imagine you are making a dinner or a party for her. Perhaps you are dropping by to see a movie. Or you are taking her out for a snack! What would you prepare for her? Here's a list of her favorites, maytel will pick the winners so make sure to enter something she will like.

  • DRINKS: Tea, Milkshake..
  • SAVORY FOODS: Japanese Chicken Curry, Steak, Pho, Spicy Sushi, Beef/Shrimp or Chicken Teriyaki...
  • SNACKS: Chocolate, Berries and Whipped Cream, Veggies and Dip, Edamame
  • DESSERTS: Strawberry Shortcake, Crepes, Ice-Cream, Angel Cake and so many more!
  • You can also get ideas from her gallery, she has posted some of her favorite foods:


The deadline for this contest is two months from today: September 23rd

i have one more question. i noticed on the other entries there is about 3 items in one picture. yet your rules says "limit is 2 per member" does that mean two picture per member?
can we have more than one item in one picture?
