Aloha,
  Well, we made it through the first two months with an already fantastic bunch of altered artwork. It's exciting to get to know some of you by learning your style, techniques and sense of humor even though we have not met. We can't wait to see what the month of May will bring our way. With so many unique themes this round is gonna be a lot of fun!
