"Step Forward" - Scrap Around the World April Palette

This is the first time I have attempted a Scrap Around the World palette, but I loved this one. While I love the butterflies and the cracked paint I think it was colours that really drew me too it.

This is my take on the palette, inspired by the colours in the palette. The photo I've used is another one of the family photos taken by China at our family photos.
Here's a closeup of the journalling, I don't normally use my hand writing for journalling as I don't really like it so this is a rarity :-)
 The journalling is a little hard to read in the picture but it says:
     "A few years ago while going through a very difficult time in my life a very smart friend
       sent me a text that contained this quote:
                                     "If you don't go after what you want,
                                      you'll never have it.
                                      If you don't ask,
                                      the answer will always be no.
                                      If you don't step forward,
                                      you're always in the same place"
     ... Thankfully I took a "Step Forward"."

Here's another close up of the other side of the page. I love the little zip, it's by Prima. I had seen them used but everywhere was always sold out, until finally I managed to get some from The Scrap Cottage, an awesome online store that also has a bricks & mortar store in Toowoomba.
 Well thanks for stopping by, 

Until next time,

Kaye :-)


  1. Stunning layout! Love those tears and embellishments in them! Thank you for drawing inspiration from my mood board and joining us at SATW this month!

  2. Another perfect Kaye page; I love the punch and the zip is just beautiful and symbolic... closing the page on the old life and stepping into the new!

  3. I don't like my handwriting either but I do use it for journaling as I believe it has more meaning to the page rather than having it typed up.... Love the quote, wise words.
    I love the tear and the little zip and I love that border lunch. Colours are gorgeous and the photo is so symbolic of the quote.

  4. Great layout. my favourite part is that tearing on the left side. Funny idea. Thanks for playing at SATW

  5. I love all tears and the way you have used MS punch. Thank you for playing along with us at Scrap Around The World.

  6. This photo is so coolm makes your page really stand out. I love this little cluster with the zipper! Thank you for playing with our SATW moodboard
