Saturday Share: Explore • Dream • Discover

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain -

Happy Saturday, my dear scrappy friends! And welcome back to another week of Saturday Share.

This week's layout is a bit special, because it has no story. The photo for this layout was taken a few years back in Sydney, when I was at Bondi Beach and they were having this Sculpture by the Sea Exhibition. I really liked and enjoyed the exhibition, but I did not get to see all of the art pieces on displayed because it was freezing cold, and my camera just ran out of battery!

Before my camera died, I managed to capture this piece by Kathy Allam, a Happy Floating Dream Cloud made entirely of colorful children's toys. It is so beautiful, I decided to have it print out, even though I have no idea what to do with the photo. 

Fast forward 2 years, I have finally decided to scrapbook the photo, without a story, but with one of my favorite quotes.

The quote by Mark Twain at the beginning of this post is one of my favorites, but it is too long and impossible to squeeze every word on my layout, so I decided to use only the last part of the quote, "Explore. Dream. Discover."

A little embellishing going diagonal from top left to bottom right, and my layout is done!

Love this cluster!

The sketch for this layout is based on Stuck?! Sketches April 1st Challenge. And I am also submitting this layout for Picture This! April 1st Challenge (1 Photo + Corners + Splatters).

And this is me trying to multitask on a Saturday morning.

That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely weekend.
