What would you do with your Darling Penguin?
Entry #1: Chef Penguin by Kaori
I would teach my penguin how to bake and watch him closely so he won't make any mistakes.
Entry #2: Hiking at Echo Mountain by Katy
Finally made it to the top, what an exhilaration!
Entry #3: Knitting Penguin by Linda
Knitting buddy of course! :)
Entry #4: Milo the Penguin by Seth
Milo is a very adventurous, curious, eco-friendly, and friendly penguin. Milo loves fishing. He is wearing his lucky green fishing hat with a gold fish on the front of it. He is wearing an eco blue t-shirt with the recycle sign on it and a fishing pole in his hand with his name on it. He has such a big heart!
I would name my penguin Milo. I would make him clothes, accessories, and give him a little area to chill out and play. I would take him everywhere with me, but no matter what I would take him on adventures with me, field trips, and when I travel I would take him no matter what! I would love Milo with all my heart just like he was a real penguin.
Entry #5 "Will you marry me?" Penguin by Tammy
Where I would take my penguin is still a toss-up between the park or to Carrabbas (our favorite restaurant), so instead, I took a picture of my penguin cut-out illustrating what I would do with the penguin: I would use him to help me propose to my boyfriend.
My guy and I have been dating for over a year now, we met through eHarmony!, and marriage is something we both know we want, and with each other. I can tell he is extremely nervous about proposing, so I'm going to surprise him and pop the question myself! Knowing him, he will still purchase a ring for me for our engagement (I'm positive he will say yes, that's how in love we are with each other), so I haven't actually gotten him an "engagement ring". Instead, in the photo, you see a ring that does hold a lot of sentimental value to me: a national championship ring that I earned in high school, which I will give to him also, along with the penguin (if I do win one). He would get such a kick out of that!
Entry #6: My Big Daddy by Tommy & Erin
A Big Daddy penguin for Brandon's birthday. It's a mix-up of Brandon's Bioshock 2 stuff and Akiyo's My Dear Darling penguin. Plus, he's going to be a Daddy.
The FAN FAVORITE winner will receive a Let's Get Personalized Penguin T-Shirt! The OFFICIAL WINNER will be announced next Monday! (contest info)
