2301 - Love is like a butterfly,

it goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes. ~Anonymous

A spread in my Blue Journal for our new theme of
over at Moo Mania & More.

I am happy that it fits also the lovely 
theme hosted this April so wonderful by Jo over at

 This is the lovely die I used to create the butterflies. I own it for nearly a decade, but  unfortunately do not use it often. 

All started with the ATC above that I made for last week's theme
of TAGS at TMTA.

Hope to meet you at all the mentioned challenges.

  6. A beautiful page Susi - love your butterflies, the wonderful summery colours, and that awesome quote.

  7. It's a lovely page Susi with those sweet butterfly die cuts, but my favourite bit is the quote! The addition of the twine is such a cool idea, it looks fantastic!

  9. What wonderful butterfly pages! The colours are so amazing and so beautifully designed with your string of pretty butterflies 😁. I'm loving your tag with that great quote too! Great theme too and I now have a great excuse to use my Big Shot to create some die cuts so I can join in the fun at MM& 😉. Thanks very much for joining AJJ with your fabulous page and wishing you a wonderful day! J 😊 x

  10. Liebe Susi,
    Du hast ein untrügliches Gespür dafür, jedes Thema gekonnt und ansprechend in Kunst zu übersetzen. Von all den Werken, die ich bis jetzt von Dir gesehen habe, und das sind viele, denn Du bist auch noch sehr kreativ, hat mich nur eines nicht auf Anhieb angesprochen.
    Die vielen verschiedenen Facetten der Liebe, dargestellt durch die Farben, aber auch die immer wieder auftauchenden Tiefs, sind für mich sichtbar durch die schwarzen Punkte. Aber es gibt das immer verbindende Band der Liebe und das kann man durch die Schmetterlinge sehen. Sind es nicht gerade die Schmetterlinge im Bauch, die Ausdruck sind der echten Liebe?
    Und jetzt hoffe ich mal, ich habe nicht zu viel interpretiert und wünsche Dir einen schönen Feiertag.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  11. That is a great little die. I don't use my dies as often as I used to either. Maybe I am just getting lazy-hee-hee. This is such a joyful summery page-I love all those little butterflies and that is a great challenge for Moo Mania. I hope to find some more art time if I can get my gardening done.. We have having a gorgeous weather week-hope you are too! Enjoy. Hugs-Erika

  12. Wowwww, this page is so so wonderful Susi !! I love the colours, the butterflies, and the quote too. Great page !!

  14. What a beautiful page and great quote. I never heard it before. I'll keep it in my mind 😀 Love, Lenie

  15. Dear Susi, such loving note , you used here, and so adorable together with the sweet butterflies. I love the watercolor feeling , the way you painted them, and the soft doodling of flowers. You are a master, with paints ( too ) and in creating beautiful nature scenes , like this.
    Thank you for your loving note to me, I treasure your words, and that we met here.
    Love from Dorthe xoxo

  19. It is a beautiful die cut and the butterflies you created for the page seem to be flying away. It looks so light and airy. Lovely colours and another super quote.

  20. Ah, love is like a butterfly, and how like a butterfly is your page, Susi, so pretty and delicate that it looks as if it is about to fly away.

  21. I fear I need to buy some dies, since they seem to be so popular in challenges lately. I printed off that same quote and was going to use it, but didn't find anything I could match it to. I adore how you connected all the butterflies, signifying they were in flight. It's a gorgeous entry and most welcome at Art Journal Journey.

  22. Awww! Very pretty page and so sweet! :)

  23. Such lovely summer colours for the butterflies to hover over. Great pages Susi xxx

  24. Susi I am in love with those colors! Gorgeous work xoxo

  25. Beautiful page as always Susi - love the fresh colours. And thats a super die which looks like it could be a butterfly or flower - very useful. As soon as I saw the title it made me think of the Dolly Parton song so I will be humming that all day now :)
    Happy Thursday - hpe its a great one!

  26. This layout is soft,flowing and the embodiment of summer! I love the pastel colors and the little bit of dimension that you added to the butterflies. So pretty, Susi.

  27. Oh, this is super cute, Susi! Love it. :)

  28. So schön deine zart gefärbten frühlingsfrischen Seiten mit den schönen Schmetterlingen.
    Liebe Grüsse und schönes Wochenende.

  29. Deine Doppelseite ist ganz zauberhaft! Diese zarten Farben und wie du sie aufgeteilt hast, dieser tolle Spruch und die wundervollen ausgestanzten Schmetterlinge! Ein Gesamt-Bild zum Verlieben :)
    Sei lieb gegrüßt, Rike oxo

  30. Such pretty colours here, and I love the simple look of the butterfly die - great that it got to come out and play.

  31. Susi! How delightful this spread is! It totally speaks of summer to me! I really love how you used the string to tie the flowers together- reminds me of a butterfly trail!
    much love xo
