Hello there, friends! We are so glad you have come to join us in the brand new home of the Edit Me challenge! If you are new to the challenge, here is how it works:
Each week a fabulous guest judge provides an unedited photo, and invites you to take it and make it your own! You can use any editing program you choose. It is all about having fun and giving the photo your own style. You can use effects, textures, frames... or choose to do an amazing clean edit and keep it simple! The beauty of the challenge is that no two edits are identical, and we all get a chance to learn from each other! At the end of the challenge, the guest judge chooses their favorite edits, and occasionally we get to throw in a prize for our winner!
This challenge will be in it's 22nd week when it resumes here on the new blog next Wednesday! If you would like to check out some past challenges, you can find them here. You can also browse through past winner posts right here. Here are some fan favorites from past challenges... you can see these and more (and I would love for you to link up your own!) here.
We are very excited to introduce you to our first guest judge and prize sponsor here in our new home, so make sure you join us bright and early Wednesday morning! Feel free to follow the blog by RSS, Twitter, and Flickr so you don't miss a thing!

Last, but not least, how about getting to know your hosts a bit?!

Branson has been running the challenge since she first took the reigns from the lovely Ashley earlier this year. Here is a little bit about her:

I am the wife of a super-tall guy with a huge heart, a mama to one very sweet little mop-top boy, and an aunt to many. That's my day job! I am a child of God, and a stubborn one at that, who is constantly re-learning the amazing promises that my Heavenly Father has laid out for me. I have a love for photography, and creating art through editing is my passion... that is why I love this challenge so much! I recently closed my blog in a search for balance, but I am still a tweet-a-holic, and an avid emailer (beware, I tend to write novels in my replies) so you will see me here and there in the online world!

Kathryn joined the Edit Me team a couple months ago, and has been an amazing partner! She is the one who designed our fabulous new header and buttons, and always breathes fun and energy into our winner posts. Here is a little bit about her:

My name is Kathryn Adams. I blog. I have a love affair with my vacuum cleaner, and I think coffee is one of God’s greatest gifts. I am the mother of two — Banana and Moose {a.k.a. Anna and Madison}. They are everything I want to be when I grow up: funny, creative, smart, kind, compassionate and forgiving. The forgiving part is crucial, ‘cause sometimes I’m the mom who forgets to pack their lunch or turn in field trip permission slips or sign their homework.
Luckily, I’m married to a forgiving husband, too, ‘cause sometimes I’m the wife who is too busy posting on her blog to cook dinner or who decided to spend the day playing in Lightroom instead of doing laundry. If you get me started on my Nikon, I’ll go on ALL day.

I can’t imagine a life without faith, without grace {I need so much!}, without unconditional love. I’m amazed and awed every day by Jesus — His heart, His Word, His presence. He changes EVERYTHING. I’d love to hear from you, and I hope you’ll stop by Our tiny big Life. Let’s be friends!

Our tiny BIG Life

We can't wait to get to know all of YOU a little bit better! Whether you have been with us since the beginning, or are here for the first time, you will find this challenge community is an amazing group of people! Feel free to introduce yourself here in the comments, or in the discussion over in our flickr group! We also encourage you to check out our guidelines, and perhaps consider being a guest judge or prize sponsor in the coming weeks! Let us know if you have any questions!

Have a wonderful weekend, and we will see you Wednesday!
