Re: POTM Line up

Scott, this is a fantastic theme for the month of May or for any month. Original and inspired, can’t wait to see the eyes in the entries. This will be a great contest.

Spike gazing at himself in the mirror. If the mirror looks dirty it's because he is always licking it, he really loves himself.

Re: May 2019 POTM contest!

I took this picture of Bella when she was sitting on the cupboard door protecting her nest.
I am looking strait up at her looking strait down.
I think it's the expression on her face more that the look in her eyes but that's good to.

Re: May 2019 POTM contest!

Love Kise's Ice Ice Baby look. Just come a bit closer.....!

Great image of Spike's virtual "friend!"

Bella is certainly primed for action!

"Eyes, Eyes Baby!" I'm LOVING the beautiful Kise's remix version! And I'm always a sucker for the female SI's blue "eyeliner".

Hahahahaha! Can't say his appreciation for his appearance is misplaced. Cute lil' fella!
