New Month - New Theme!!

And its my month too!   Its going to be a month of "Things with Wings" over at Make My Monday and this week we would like to see:-

Butterflies and/or Dragonflies

Now flora, fauna, butterflies are my favourite subject when crafting - I opted for a chipboard Maya Road album which I have decorated with butterflies galore and quotes that I just love!

I have used a mixture of Mariposa papers - this paper stack is just to die for and was a present from my niece.  Now I am a rare crafter I have no qualms about cutting into my gorgeous papers.  I have also used old pages from a butterfly guide and some elements of Bo Bunny's Gabrielle papers.

I have used a variety of stamps including Crafty Individuals, Fancy Pants and Elusive Images.
The quote on the first page of the album says:-  "The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough"  Rabindranath Tagore
The quote on the page above reads:-  "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty"  Author Unknown.
This double page has a quote from Hans Christian Anderson:-  "Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little freedom; said the butterfly".
"Just like the butterfly I too will awaken in my own time"  Deborah Chaskin

"If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies"  Author Unknown.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  I would love to flutter by your blogs to see your butterflies and/or dragonflies.  Take Care.  Suzanne ~x~

Wow, wow, wow Suzanne - what an amazing album. As you know butterflies are one of my favourite things in crafting and to see a whole book of them made in such a gorgeous style is breathtaking.
The Mariposa papers mixed with the vintage ones, the colours, the quotes and whole design make it a treasure to behold. Thanks for sharing the pics of every page, I loved looking at them.
Great theme this month - sorry won't be able to enter many as I am away on holiday soon.
Take care.
