Take a Word - Butterflies

Butterflies are one of nature's great miracles.  The transition from caterpillar to butterfly never ceases to amaze us.  Credit for my butterflies to Dover Samples, and for my background to Eena's Designs at Deviantscrap.  Overlay by Berna at Scrapbookgraphics. Thanks for stopping by.

Three Muses - Numbers

It's good to get back to creating after a wonderful week of family visits.  The challenge is numbers, which always conjure up mysterious graphs, cogs, and stodgy number-crunchers in my mind.   Obviously, math was not my favorite subject!!!  Credits:  Finecrafted Designs; Maya (SBG); Laurin Bavin.

Take a Word - Happiness

Happy was a good choice for me, having just enjoyed the visit of my daughter and granddaughter from Oregon, and relatives from Illinois for a glorious week of family togetherness and exchange of family stories.  That is the best happiness of all!  My happy person is a collaboration with Olive Oil's body and my own sketched face.  The border is credit to Berna at Scrapbookgraphics.   Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Word - Botanical

I'm not very good at botanicals, for some reason, but nonetheless, here's my effort.  Bird is credit to Land of Nod, bow and "splatters" Eena's Creations, and floral sprigs were googled.  I forget where I got the bumblebee, but he is majestic!!   Thanks for stopping by.

Three Muses - Bird

The first here is a collage using a Jesse Wilcox Smith child, Jenn U Designs Window, and my imagination.  The second is a nod to the past.  Come June 30th, I would've been married 56 years.  My husband died in 1979, so I have been alone far longer than we were married.  The elements for this piece are credit to Eena's Creations at Deviantscrap, and the "bluebird of happiness" was given to me by June Yarham (thanks June!)

Take a Word - Cool Colors

I was running a bit short of time for this challenge, so I've dredged up something in blues and greens from the far distant past.  Instead of remembering, this little cherub might have been wondering why our water heater has sprung a leak.  Looks like cold showers for a couple of days!!  Why do these things happen on weekends?  Thanks for stopping by, blog friends!

Three Muses - Gothic/Gothic

Ann's challenge is Gothic art/Gothic arch, and she asked for dark.  This is about as dark as I get, and I've scared myself!!!   Thanks for having the courage to visit!!
