Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #13 - A Year of Choices (And Some Changes)

Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #13
"A Year of Choices"
(And Some Changes)
You have so many options: Spray Inks and Mists, Around the House, Stencils and Paste, Photo Inspiration, Ribbon Twin and Fiber, Stamps, Tic Tac Toe, New to You, Think Pink, Birds of a Feather, April Showers, and finally... May Flowers! 

This month we are celebrating our 1 Year Birthday. We started this blog last June. Rachel and I were looking for a place where crafters who enjoyed mixed media could  find inspiration for and share their mixed media creations. Whether you've been with us since the beginning or just found us recently, we want to thank everyone who participates in our challenge. We are continually blown away by the amazing creations we get to enjoy each month. Our little blog has been more popular and successful than we could have ever imagined. 

Over the past year we have strived to provide you with inspirational projects created by mixed media artists at all levels of experience. Our design team members have spent hours commenting on our players blogs. We have worked hard to feature some of the best mixed media artists as guest designers and we have tried our best to find amazing sponsors who offer fun, crafty, mixed media prizes. 

Since we started, a multitude of "Mixed Media" Challenges have formed. In an effort to maintain the integrity of our challenge and remain relevant, we are changing a few of our Player Requirements. Please note the changes below when you are preparing your June Challenge post. 

1. You must use our challenge graphic in your challenge post. 
2. You must comment on at least 3 design team members blogs to be eligible for prizes and recognitions.
3. You may combine with up to 4 more challenges

I can't wait to see what you all create this month. Thanks for making this such an awesome challenge!

We're SO excited to announce our awesome June sponsor and prize! Maya Road is offering two prizes for our TWO random winners this month!!! Maya Road also generously sent our Design Team Members some awesome products that they each used in their projects this month.
