2269 .... Try It On Tuesday

We start a new theme over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY today!
Our new theme this fortnight for you is:

mums the word

 I have a digital page made with my own photos and 
some different free elements, which I will also link to
Rosie's " SPRING" theme over at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY
and to 
where our next theme
already starts tomorrow. 
I will also link to Wen's

 And for all my friends at Elizabeth's  TSFT and in blogland 
I have to share a slice of my freshly
made charlotte cake. We call it Malakofftorte 
in Austria and I like it , specially in summer, when it is hot and I won't use the oven to bake a cake. Some herbal tea for you or I can offer coffee for you as well !

 I am not online very often these days since I have started a big
spring cleaning here at my studio and well all the other parts of the house need some tender loving care  and decluttering as well.
So please don't think I am unwell or my muse is on vacation.
I will return soon with fresh new ideas for sure after the decluttering of my studio and house. And tomorrow I will show you what our new theme at Moo Mania & More is. So call in tomorrow again  please! I love your visits and nice comments-
so much appreciated!




  1. Eine schöne Seite Susi. Die Torte sieht so lecker aus, ich nehme eine Tasse Kaffee dazu.
    LG Dagmar

  2. Liebe Susi
    ein tolles Thema und das Bild ist traumhaft schön.
    Ich wünsche dir viel Vergnügen beim Umräumen, das muss auch mal sein ;-)) Ballast abwerfen, neu ordnen usw.
    LG Sadie

  3. Hi Susi,love your page and that cake looks so yummy. Good luck with your spring cleaning g I have also been doing a little bit at my place as well xx

  4. What a sweet page, I like this!

  5. Was für eine wunder-wunderschöne Seite, liebe Susi. Mit neidischem Blick auf Dein Stück Torte, wünsche ich Dir einen schönen Frühjahrsputz.

    AJJ und MMM freuen sich auch

  6. Liebe Susi,
    ein sehr schönes Thema klasse umgesetzt!!! wunderschöne Seite
    und der Kuchen sieht auch lecker aus:) auf den ersten Blick habe ich gedacht, dass es ein Tiramisu-Kuchen ist.
    Ganz liebe Grüße

  7. That's what I needed to do. My studio is a MESS! It was one of my vacation goals, but then when the weather got nice I decided to hit the rest of the house and make it fresh. :) Good for you. I hope you get your happy space cleaned and ready for a new wave of creativity. And boy, your malakofftorte looks soooo yummy. I would take a piece for sure. I bet it tastes good. I need to look that up and see how it is made as I love trying new things, especially tasty things. :) And your mothering page is beautiful also. :) Hope you are warming up Susi. We have a huge snowstorm coming tomorrow-the biggest of the winter they are saying. UGH-and I thought we were ready for spring. :) Hope all else is well. Hugs-Erika

  8. Beautiful post and love your digi use.xx 💖 [Aussie aNNie's Blog]

  9. Love your use of the digital images Susi, I especially adore how the dragonfly sweeps in from the corner almost in disguise.
    Good Luck with your Spring Clean, it's the next thing on my to do list, i'm not looking forward starting but know I will be uplifting when it's done.
    Hugs Tracey xx

  10. Die Seite ist frühlingshaft und zart. Ich mag den Eierschalenton, die Freude der Mutter (und die niedliche Frisur des Babys :D) und die zarte botanische Illustration.

    Liebe Grüße,

  11. eine superschöne digitale seite (bevor ich das gelesen hatte, habe ich herumgerätselt...). diese torte scheint so ein bisschen in richtung tiramisu zu gehen? boah, was gäbe ich jetzt für ein solches stückchen...
    liebe grüße, johanna - auch am rumräumen (ein gefühltes dauerthema...)

  12. It is a gorgeous and loving page Susi. I loved the images of the mother and baby you used.
    I need a tidy in my craft room, I often start but get tempted into adding more to the mess. So good luck with your Spring Clean plans.
    The cake looks delicious, it sounds like it doesn't need the oven to make, so I will have to look the recipe up on the internet soon.
    Happy T day wishes
    Yvonne xx

  13. What a really lovely collage Susi. So tender and loving. Sounds like you're on a mission-good for you! My cleaning out/purging is ongoing, a little at a time. What a decadent looking piece of cake-you'll need the sugar high to get your cleaning done:) Happy T day!

  14. Susi that Charlotte cake looks divine and i bet it tastes good too.. I'm going to have to look it up as i have never heard of it. Best wishes on your Spring cleaning... i need (should) do the same but i'am being pulled in other directions..still working on the house.. Hard to worry too much about cleanliness wit all this construction and dust going on.. Big T day hugs! deb

  15. Beautiful photo and page for the new theme, the cake looks so good!

  16. love that gentle page and the cake looks delicious..its a nice time of year to declutter ..that is what I have been doing too

  17. Your digital page is stunning! I love the soft neutral shades of colour that you used and the different images look breathtaking together 😁. The way you positioned the wings behind the baby made me smile! Your cake looks delicious and a lovely reminder of summertime, which will soon be here as time just seems to fly by, how did we get to March already ...lol 😉. Enjoy your spring cleaning and wishing you much happiness this T Day dear Susi! J 😊

  18. I am in LOVE with your journal page. It's incredible. I think it is simply perfect for Rosie's theme at Art Journal Journey, too. I really wish I had your digital skills. I love how this looks. I'm delighted you shared it with Art Journal Journey today.

    Now I really, really want that cake. I'll be diabetic if I ate as much as that (grin), but I love it anyway. I'll share your tea with you, but please don't make mine decaf! I need the energy if I'm going to help you with your cleaning (another grin). Thanks for sharing this with us today for T.

    BTW, I think you just inspired me to do a bit of cleaning in my basement studio and my craft room, too.

  19. A beautiful page Susi, it's a lovely image of the Mother and Baby.
    Your cake looks delicious, I certainly wouldn't mind a slice.
    Good luck with the decluttering, I keep starting in my craft space but get distracted very easily!

  27. Hi Susi, your page is wonderful, beautiful and your cake delicious. I love to de clutter and keep my craft room and house organized. I have not been on line as much as I'm trying to spend more time with art. But it's good to come and see what my blog friends are doing. Take care, Shirleyx

  28. Hi Susi, good luck with de cluttering I so need to do that too especially in my craft room-I can hardly work in there any more

  30. Oh, I just love this sweet image and that bright flower. Your Charlotte cake looks so yummy. I have never made one of these but all the layers look pretty. I am off to look up a recipe.
    Happy Tea Day,

  31. An absolutely delicate and beautiful collage full of love and joy Susi! Loving the shades in neutrals too!
    Thanks for sharing your beauty dear!

  32. I am in the process of decluttering my whole house! I know it gets worse before it gets better! But I just seem to be making one mess after another! Am I just rearranging it? LOL The pie looks good, and that is a really neat cup! Happy T Day!

    May your spring cleaning bring you pleasure and fulfilment, and may it stimulate your muse into more beautiful works

  36. Such a sweet and heartwarming collage, dear Susi! That photo is priceless! You created a beautiful, honouring collage with it.

  37. What a beautiful page!
    I am sugar free, so not looking at your cake Susi, hahaha
    Good luck with the spring clean.
    Alison xx

  38. That's a beautiful page you made Susie. I love the idea of giving the baby wings.
    The Malakoff cake looks delicious. My mouth is watering (as I'm on a diet and I can't have cake these days)
    I wish you strength spring cleaning and decluttering. It has to be done sometimes. Afterwards it will be so much more pleasant to craft in your studio.
    Happy belated T-Day,

  39. That's an amazing image, Susi. The idea of putting angel wings on the baby is wonderful. It's a beautiful and very meaningful page. Love it <3

    Thank you for sharing that wonderful looking charlotte cake. I bet it was delicious.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  41. susi, your image is so tender, so joyous. What a lovely moment you have captured. The collage adds special touches too. Beautiful!

  42. Wunderschön hast du diese Collage digital zusammengestellt! Der Flügel am Baby "kleiner Engel" - der Schmetterlingsflügel, der Blütenstempel der Tulpe ident mit der Form der Libelle, die Schrift, die Farben - einfach traumhaft!
    Traumhaft auch dieses Stück Torte (das es mittlerweile sicher nur mehr am Foto zu sehen gibt :))- ach, das hätte ich jetzt gerne ...
    Knuddel, Rike ❤❤❤
