    SO cute! What a great idea with ice cream cones! I voted for it. If you are inclined to check it out, I have an intsructable entered (a DIY custom t-shirt quilt) in "Before & After", "Sew Warm," and "Handmade Gifts". No pressure, entering my own project made me want to check out all the other contests. Good luck!
