If you have any ideas for a theme, please suggest it here! We have main contests every week, and mini contests on a daily basis.

Please review the list of what has already been suggested so we don't have a bunch of posts with the same suggestions over and over.

We are going to keep this list up and add ideas as they are suggested.  We will sometimes use these theme ideas for the main contest, but anyone is free to borrow ideas for their mini contests as well! Keep in mind that themes do need to work for a variety of ages! So for example, something like "first birthday" pictures wouldn't work, since ALL the entries would be in the 1 year old categories, and would completely leave out everyone who isn't 1 yet!
