Great collections! I ♥ ladybugs. Did you ever see A Bug's Life? My favorite character was the "man bug". :) *LOL*

Thanks for stopping by my place!

Journeywoman said...

Ladybugs are wonderful. Great pictures!

colleen said...

Do you know that around here we have had lady bug invasions. The cover houses and windows and people have to suck them up with vacuum cleaners. I'm not kidding!

Joyce said...

The beveled edges are a very nice touch, indeed! This is such a cheerful collage. :)

anthonynorth said...

Ah, just about the only insect we like.
Great pics.

Lady bugs are so cute. Haven't seen one in a long time, at least since I left New York. Maybe Florida doesn't have ladybugs? I dunno!

I love ladybugs. Do you know The "Very Grouchy Ladybug" by Eric Carle? It's fun to read with kids.

Gattina said...

Beautiful ! love it ! Now that everybody has automn stuff on its blog, I appreciate spring/summer things ! I hate automn and winter, lol !

Darla said...

Those are beautiful pictures! I love ladybugs.

Patsy said...

Ahhhhhh, they look so sweet in your pictures. Did you know ladybugs will bite though? Many years ago when I had to hang #1 daughter's diapers on the line to dry (I said many years ago) the lady bugs would swarm on them then when I took them off the line I would inverably get pinched or bitten at least a couple of times. Have never been a huge ladybug fan since.

Alice Audrey said...

Interesting that they are all on flowers when they aren't a pollen collecting type of bug.

Ivanhoe said...

Oh these are sooo cute! I love what you've learned in your classes. One day I'll learn how to do my collages, too :o)

Oh, I love these! Like butterflies, ladybugs are nature's charmers. Thanks for lifting my spirit a bit.

Akelamalu said...

Oh I love what you did with those!

We're missing ladybugs around here these days. Now that Fall is in full effect and cooler temps have arrived.

A beautiful collage.

Storyteller,

I have always loved ladybugs since childhood. There is just something about them...

Great collage, my friend. It made me smile.

Blessings,
Mary

Very beautiful Story teller - amazing !

storyteller said...

Thanks everyone!
I’m delighted you dropped by and enjoyed my butterfly collage. I appreciate each of your comments. I’ve been trying to make a ‘single’ collage with 13 items --- one larger picture in the center surrounded by 12 smaller ones --- for quite some time, but this is the first time I succeeded. I’ve seen others do this thing and asked for (and received) suggestions including links to BigLabsDotCom, but haven’t been able to make the site work for me because I can’t make Flickr work … sigh! I finally figured out how to use the ‘grids’ in PSE6 to help me align ‘cropped’ photos (from Flickzzz) and am happy with the results myself. I hope you’ve had an enjoyable weekend. Here’s wishing you a marvelous Monday!
Hugs and blessings,
