Edit Me 2012 - Week 16

Welcome to a brand new week of editing fun (and another great prize, too)! This week our guest judge is Kat from Living Like the Kings! Kat describes herself as:

A 20-something blogging about the important things in life - like food, babies, and dogs.  I married my roommate 4 years ago and now we're raising our first baby. Follow along as I try to figure out how to keep up a healthy marriage, take on the challenge of raising our first baby, and still manage to have a little humor in life.

Be sure to visit her on Twitter and Facebook, and thank her for judging! Here is the ADORABLE photo we get to edit this week... (are you as excited as I am?) :

 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.

Now then, this week's prize is provided by our very own co-host, Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming. In addition to being an awesome photographer, Stephanie also loves to do design work. In fact, she is the one who is responsible for the fabulous design here on the Edit Me blog right now! Stephanie also has an etsy shop where she sells printables! For this week's winner, she is offering a blog design! She will work with you to create a new look for your blog, including a header, button, and social network icons. (You may remember Sarah from The Stiles Files won a similar prize a few weeks ago... have you seen her new look?) We can't wait to see who gets a bloggy makeover this week!

Last but not least. here is a review of the challenge guidelines:
  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!
