For the 3rd mini contest, The Perfect Date:
Jenna DeTrapani!!!! Here is Jenna's perfect date with Ren:
"Ren. I would take him (the man) to LegoLand in Orlando, where we will build Lego tigers all day long... Then maybe we will hop-skip on over to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay where he can watch his white tiger brothers as they laze around in the park... Perhaps he could pop his head up in the bubble viewing area (a window underground that puts your head in the midst of the tigers) and turn into a white tiger himself to create some pandemonium in the park! Of course we would have to hightail it home after that! ;)~"
And Jenna's prize:
Golden Tigers Eye and black onyx beaded necklace
(Made by me)
(Sorry there is no picture for this prize at the moment. I will post the picture when I have one)
For the 4th mini contest, Written Love:
McElwain Family!! Here is the poem!
You're the one I trustAnd the only thing I lust
You're the one I truly love
And everything that I dream of
My redemption from myselfAnd the one thing that makes my heart melt
The one who calms my mind
And holds me when I cry at night
You're the one who helps me breath
When everything else is against me
The one I truly need
To be myself absolute complete
Forever's not long enough
To express all my love
And snuggles tight
And tickle fights
You're something special
When you sing softly
And when you hold my hand
I feel – free
You know what you are?
Your special to me.
And for McElwain Family's prize:

One more thing. . . because Elizabeth Hughes entries were e-mailed to me, no one else got to see everything. I posted her casting choices but I would like to share her poem and date because they made me fall out of my chair I was laughing so hard.
Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
Kishan is Sexy
But not as much as you!
And Elizabeth's date:
Well, to start off with, I would apologize to Kishan for asking him out, because I still think it should be guys who have that priveledge. With that out of the way, I would kidnap him and take him to Vernon, Utah, where we would both dress up in Hawaiian shorts and bermuda T-shirts with ridiculous huge sunglasses and those old fashioned, massive cameras. Then we would both fake the most horrific accents we could (of any language, although Russian or French would be best), and explore the town as tourists! We'd ask EVERYONE to take our picture in front of the most ridiculous things--like the cactus plants or those signs that say "Vernon--where everyone knows the name of you, your family, and your horse." We would frequently "get lost" and have to ask for directions, always making sure to ask what the best site-seeing places are. We'd stop for lunch at the Silver Sage and marvel at "American food." We would end our date at the reservoir with ridiculous, completely wrong fishing methods! :D
