Here is my contribution to the game.

Seen over at Craftapalooza, Pea soup, and Chapter III ; (oh and at Life in General and Muppinstuff too - its really catching on!!!)

The concept:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name

You can play too.

Its not too hard, you just need to have two windows open and switch between the two.

Its sometimes surprising to see the photos that come up in response to a keyword. That makes it a little difficult to discern the answers to the questions, but I think that preserves a bit of mystery.

Enjoy! The photos on Flickr are amazing!!!!

P.S. I'm so stoked to find the mosaic photo maker tool! I've seen these amazing mosaics on other sites (esp. My Happy Little Life) and thought I had to pay to have a Flickr Pro account or something...I'm not cool enough, or so organised to upload all my photos on Flickr. My account is so understocked, but it is useful to be able to send a photo to my blog from there.

So pretty, and so much fun!
I like the way George has a lemon tart halo with a fork in it!
I was so dumb, doing this, and it took me forever, as I didn't realise that the mosaic maker did absolutely everything, so I took pages of notes of everyone's name and url all the way through it. AND I used only the first picture flickr gave me, as I hadn't read the instructions properly. Duh!
So I did another one, which I haven't posted.
Now I'm trying to work out your answers ...

Fabulous! I really love how your mosaic came out -- I especially love the desserts just over and just under Mr. Clooney....

Laura, go to and you'll be able to set up a list that will let you know whenever each blog has updated. It saves so much time. (It's also pretty much idiot proof, which is very handy for a technophobe like me!)
