Edit Me 2012 - Week 1

I love the start of a new year! Everything seems fresh. A blank page and a new beginning. So, it is only fitting that I take a moment to introduce you to our NEW co-host!

Sarah is the newest member of the Edit Me team, although she has been a participant from the very beginning! She is an awesome friend, and is going to be an amazing partner! Here is a little bit more about her:

Hello, I'm Sarah! Married to my high school sweetheart.Mom to a wild almost 4 year old, named Dustyn, and a lovable, sweet 20 month old, named Carsyn who has MIH HPE and Cerebral Palsy. You can find me hanging around twitter, pinning my next project, and sharing my crazy life with two boys and tips for photography on my blog. If you ever have any questions you can always email me.
She is also our judge for this week! If you are a fan of her blog, you will recognize the little guy in her photo right away. It is the adorable Dustyn, and his dog, Dudley. To edit: (click the photo to download the large version!)
This challenge is all about taking a photo and making it your own with the editing program of your choice! It is also about learning a little bit from each other, and exploring new styles! There are no restrictions (unless specifically stated within the post for the week), but we do ask that you share a little bit about how you arrived at your finished product.

Here are the details:
  1. When you link up, please use your edited photo as the thumbnail!
  2. If you use the mouseover code or right-click protect your images, you need to either add a copy to the flickr pool (preferred) or it will be assumed that you agree to allow us to use a screenshot of your entry if you are a winner!
  3. The judge for the week will choose the top 3 edits from the entries, and the overall winner of the 3 
  4. If you would like to post multiple edits, specify which one is your choice for judging. Only one photo is eligible for judging, and it must be clear which one you are entering.
  5. Don't forget so share your editing steps, or some tips and tricks so we can learn from each other!
  6. Don't forget to use the #editmechallenge tag when you share your posts on Twitter. 
  7. The linky will open at the time of the post on Wednesday, and close the following Saturday at 11:59 PM (central time).
  8. Winners will be announced the following Tuesday.
  9. Don't forget to visit the other participants, and leave some comment love! As usual, the more you participate the more feedback you will get!
So, there you have it! Have fun, and can't wait to see what you come up with! And, as always, if you are interested in judging or sponsoring a challenge, be sure to let us know!
