EDIT: Please do not submit work that was done before I posted the challenge. Its ok to make items for this challenge that you made for other challenges but if your work was done before I even posted the challenge thats not fair to other who worked hard to make something for this challenge and have posted their blog entry or SCS including a link to this challenge. Your entry will be deleted. Sorry.
