Now that the indefatigable Christophe, aka ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' gyaban, has finally become a daddy, let's help him out by coming up with an image which he could use to help decorate baby Emilie's nursery...something kinda like the modern-day Disney movies, where although the primary audience is the child, having in a few visual gags for the parents to appreciate helps :-)

Expert editing, of course.

Then he will end up with his umpteenth blue ribbon in a challenge about his own child. lol
Has there been an Expert editing challenge he hasn't won?

I'd be in though, it would be fun to get the practice.

I think mr gyaban will have a lot less photoshop time on his hands now he's a daddy ! maybe he'll only get yellows from now on ?
hehe :-)

That's a lovely suggestion. I'll go write it up!

So what's the theme of a challenge like this "Decorate a nursery"?

Interesting. We put little trains, cars, and airplanes in our sons room when he was a newborn. :-)

"Decorate Baby Emilie's Nursery" is the title in the queue :-)

How about that! Back-to-back nursery challenges :-)

Lame or not, I suggested this challenge so am glad to see it made it here.

Yup -- but I think some people are being extremely limited in their views. It doesn't have to be limited to nursery rhymes, any type of pictures can decorate a nursery! Musical themes, race cars, flowers, calming landscapes with boats, cute construction workers (well, maybe not that... :)

Open your minds, people! Be creative! Have fun with a challenge that celebrates the happiness of one of our own!

Not lame at all, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' snaffles -- excellent suggestion!

(Besides that, if you want to stay in the kid realm, fairy tales are sooooo much more interesting than nursery rhymes. :)

What Wendy said. This isn't ABOUT nursery rhymes or anything like that; it's about creating an image to delight a child (and that child's parents) that might be HUNG in the nursery. It's a FREE STUDY with a bit of focus: let's get creative!

What are the current odds on Christophe winning this one, too?

I think that would be awesome, actually. I'm sooooo looking forward to seeing his entry. :)

After all, he does have a little more insight. However, those of us who are parents might have more experience. :)

Odds on Blue, 3:1 I'd say. Odds on any color ribbon, maybe 1:20 :-) Assuming he has TIME to enter, that is. Diaper duty might reduce available processing time below criticality.

I think that's going to be a major factor, some of us counting on him to not quite have enough time to turn out his usual masterpiece...*snicker snicker* ;-) But he'll probably still kick our butts anyway!

I can say with some confidence that the same odds apply to my entry, if applied to the other end of the results ... ;-)

At least when he kicks our butts -- he should have some extra desitin or baby powder to help with the chafing. ;)

Sorry, but I just see this as lame to the community as a whole and more relevant in the 'Personal Life' category as a side challenge.

Or alternatively, this falls into the same category as the challenges we had for Shez, and Doc. We are a community. It is refreshing to see that we occasionally respond to major changes in each other's lives. One such challenge every other year is hardly "lame".

OMG. There are many challenge topics that I think are lame. That's why I created THIS THREAD. Take the whining over there.
