The sponsor I was honored to work with this week is A & T Digital Designs and the image I choose was Willie & Mia. These are two adorable fairies and we all know how much I like Fairies now don't we? The challenge was "Fall/Autumn" though so I decided to use fall colors and to have these two love birds "Fall"ing in Love!

 Here is a close up

Creative Knockouts ~ Themed Challenge ~ "Charming" Featuring Lacy Sunshine

Hi Everyone,

Today the Creative Knockouts has a fun new themed challenge starting. Our theme this week is "Charming". Our amazing sponsor is Lacy Sunshine. Her images are very fun to color so make sure you check out all her wonderful images over on her website. I think a lot of Lacy Sunshine images are "Charming" but when I was shopping for a image for this challenge I spotted this Lizabeth image called "Key to My Heart" and I immediately wanted to color her up. She is Charming don't you think? I also added the Key "charm" to the lock which just added more "Charm", So as you can see there are a lot of fun ways to participate this week. Lets see your "Charming" work. :-)

Here is a close up of they locket and key.
 Here is the close up of my coloring. Her hair was quite challenging but oh so worth the time.
