hard to believe another throwdown has come to an end. bakinccc was a great contender. it was a very close race. thanks to everyone who voted.

for the next throwdown, i have challenged yankeegal to a new cookie bouquet throwdown. we still need to come up with a theme. hopefully we can come up with something by tomorrow at least. we'll turn in our photos on July 16th. bakinccc will post the photos(if that's ok with her). i have attached the rules to follow along.

Cookie Bouquet Throwdown Rules
1. Any member may challenge another CC member to a TD. The TD will begin and end on the specified dates, so all pictures of completed cookie bouquets can be uploaded for judging at the same time. This will make it easier for all CC members to judge each TD photo, and all winners can be announced at the same time.

2. Throw Downs begin on the 1st day of every month. They will end inexactly 3 weeks from the start date, at which time your pictures need to be sent to the poster. Pictures need to be sent to the poster by 3:00 pm CST.

3. You may submit up to 3 photos for judging.

4. You may choose your decorating medium, be it marshmallow fondant, rolled buttercream, royal, glace... Everything must be edible.

5. The loser will be the poster of the new throwdown.

6. A throwdown should be as equal in decorating skills as possible. If you are the throwdown winner, try to choose a member with "equal or greater than" skills as yourself.

7. The throwdown challengers will determine the theme of the bouquet.

8. The winner of the throwdown continues to compete until they lose. Once a contestant has lost, they must wait 12 months before participating again.

9. Only 2 members may compete in any particular throwdown, however, there can be more than one throwdown going on at a time.

10. Bouquets must have between 7 and 11 cookies. All cookies must be arranged in a bouquet, and not just thrown in a basket.

11. Judging may include not only the cookies, but the packaging as well. So, keep this in mind when choosing a container. icon_evil.gif

so far it looks like we're leaning towards maybe a 70's themed bouquet. this could be fun

We decided on the 70's theme-I am so excited!!! The decade that brought us some of the best/worst in fashion!

It's going to come sooner than you think! I'll have to research how to post and do the voting thing but come July 16th I'll be ready hopefully. Remember to take close-ups of any should both submit 3 pics if you can. Good luck to both of you!!!

I have a dumb question icon_redface.gif How do I vote??? Everytime I go to the throwdown threads to vote I don't actually see a place to do it, what am I missing icon_redface.gif

gottabakenow...THANK YOU so much for agreeing to post since my *&^%$ computer wouldn't let me!!

And, SueW, just an FYI...I noticed on the last throwdown that you couldn't see the polls to vote unless you're logged in. I was on someone elses computer once and noticed that I could see the thread but not the polls until I logged in.

GOOD LUCK kneadacookie and yankeegal!!!!!
