I was checking out some digital scrapbooking blogs and came across a card like the one I made above. It was using a kit one of the designers made. Seeing all the squares, I was thinking it was a fun way to show the paper in our Designer Series Paper. I still have way too much DP and every time I get another pack, I promise myself I will use it. I don't. Island Oasis has been sitting on my desk for a couple of months. I've even made several cards with Tropical Party. Today I used some. I have to keep telling myself it is OK to use this set still, it is after all, still summer. Today was the first day of school so I'm feeling like summer is over even though it is mid-90s and won't be fall-like for about 3 more months.
Stamps: Tropical Party, Thank You Kindly, Frames w/ a Flourish CS: Old Olive, So Saffron, WW Ink: Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red Misc.: Island Oasis DSP, Fire Circles Brads, Dimensionals, corner rounder
Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
