  1. The scene I chose and made is in black & white, can I b&w the picture so it’s exact?

    [from tanster: i know exactly the scene you’re talking about. :) since it is shown in the episode in B&W, yes, you can B&W the photo, but no other photoshopping effects. thanks!]

  2. Tanster- Can I submit an entry just for fun? I live in Canada. I don’t mind if I can’t win anything. I just think it would be fun!

    [from tanster: worldwide entries are accepted — see “Prizes” section!]

  3. Okay, now I’m really curious. What scene was in B&W? I don’t remember that at all, but I know haven’t missed an episode.

  4. Are we allowed to use an image that was used in the scene we are depicting? i.e. print out the original image and use it in the Peeps scene?

  5. My BFF just said she’d help me make one! Yay! Now I just need to think of a scene that everyone else won’t do…hmmm….

  6. @ 4 (jj)

    I’m 99% sure they’re talking about the security-tape footage of Michael’s fall in ‘Koi Pond’. Great scene, can’t wait to see your entry!! :]

  7. I think that the B&W scene is probably the security footage from Koi Pond. I was thinking about doing that scene too, its a great one.

  8. Where are all the entries people? Kick it up a notch, BAM! Can’t wait to see them all.

  9. We had to wait until after easter to get the on-sale peeps :) I was thinking of doing the koi pond scene, too. I have some good ideas for it so I still might. I have some other ideas, too, so we’ll see.

  10. A scene I am thinking about doing has a Vance Refrigeration sign in the background. Can I include that?
