In the Spotlight for 2013 at try it on Tuesdays.

The TIOT Team, would like to thank you all for  the wonderful Challenge entries you have all  shared with us during the past year. We have thoroughly enjoyed looking though your projects this year and look forward to seeing you all join us again in 2014. 

To celebrate the end of the year we have asked our design team to share with you some of their favorite picks from 2013.  We picked our favorite 15 projects from all the 2013 entries and have decided to put you in our  'Spotlight for 2013.  Now I must tell you this was no easy task as there were so many wonderful entries for our design team to go through but they tirelessly searched through them all and found this to be a very hard choice to be made but in the end we have each chosen a favorite.
So without further ado here they are in order by months.

Alison shared this mixed media canvas in January in our "New Stash" challenge.

 Rosie shared this fantastic tag with us in our "Time Flies" challenge back in February.


This is one of Zandra's favorites for a steampunk look. This is from February "Time Flies" Challenge.

Fern Riley
Fern wowed us with a beautiful layout in out "Eyes" challenge. What a great photo and brilliant pops of color.

Rocky really went outside the box on this one during our "Steampunk" challenge in April.

 Myra joined us with this  delightful diva, in our "Feminine and Fancy" challenge in May.

Sujana's entry in our "Home is where the heart is" July Challenge was amazing with all the quilling detail.

 Sally joined in our "Metal" challenge in July with this wonderful piece.


This was one of the Top 5 for the "Collage with a twist challenge". Laura said 'I wish I could do collages like this!  It is so beautiful!

 Wendy is a regular entrant, this one from the "Halloween" challenge in October caught  Avril's eye.

Nancy H
We loved the card and verse on Nancy's entry for our "Halloween" challenge.


This gorgeous tag was one of the Top 5 for the "Halloween Challenge". We loved all the details and the glamorous witch is wonderful!

 This mixed media collage caught Ellie' s eye in our "Colour Explosion"  challenge in November
