You both are very welcome!! I couldn't get onto CC for a coupla days because of the maintenance -- I checked every so often. Finally I got on, but I couldn't open the PM SweetDreams sent me explaining how to post the pictures and start a poll!!! My hands were really starting to sweat!

Since I "hosted" the throwdown I don't think it's appropriate for me to vote. Can someone tell me how to view the results? (BTW, I'm glad for that. It would not be easy!)

Truly incredible work ladies!!
(I tried to PM you, I guess it's still not working.)

Edited to add: Duh! Clicking on the "view results" link might let me view the results. dunce.gif

After much thought, I finally cast my vote. It was really difficult to pick one over the other. Honestly, I think this could be one of the closest throwdowns yet!

I just voted, but I couldn't decide, so I let my 6 year old son choose. I thought who better than a kid to decide Dr Seuss! Great job both of you!

I hope everybody gets to vote before the deadline! This is the first time in two days I've been able to access CC, what with the site maintenance going on. Bumping this to the top so people will see it and vote!
