Edit Me 2012 - Week 11

First things first - a couple exciting updates: 

As you hopefully know, the amazing Stephanie recently jumped in as our new co-host here. I am excited to announce that she brought a couple awesome ideas with her... two of which are now in the works! First, you will find that we now have an official facebook page! Here we will share not only weekly challenges, but also your posts and editing tips and tricks. We are super excited about this, and hope you will stop over and "like" us

And the second new development is a way to feature some of the really terrific tips, tricks, and tutorials that you guys are sharing when you submit your edits. We have always said that sharing things like that is one of the main objectives of this challenge. So, starting this week, we will be selecting one post each week that has great information for us, and that post will be featured in the sidebar. 

Now then... on with the new challenge!

This week's guest judge is Belle from Belle Pics Photography (her new blog is in the works, stay tuned!). Here is a little bit more about her: "Hi, my name is Belle! I am a teenage photographer... I am from a family of 10 kids! loving it! Jesus is my biggest passion, living each day to his Glory! Photography is my favorite hobby!"

This week she has given us a darling photo to edit! I can't wait to see what you guys do with this one:


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!
And this week we have a little prize for our winner! 
A $5 Digital Gift Card to!
Here are the details from our sponsor:

Hi, I'm Amy, from Mimibeth Photography. I'm assuming you all like free stuff as much as I do, so I have a great website for you! It's a search engine called Swagbucks. You can earn "bucks" by searching, watching videos, taking surveys, inviting your friends to join, voting on polls, or even by playing games! When you earn swagbucks they are saved up in your account and then you can redeem prizes with them. I've gotten over $160 dollars worth of gift cards in just over a year of searching. One of my favorite ways to earn is to invite my friends, because when they earn swagbucks, I earn them too! You can help me out and get started on earning your earn swagbucks by signing up today at this link

Search & Win

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!
