Getting sidetracked

The other day, I was picking up some groceries, and I got sidetracked. Now, this wasn't one of those end caps intended to rope you in for a "Mega Sale" or "Deep Discount" - some item you would not have gone out of your way to buy, but now that it's staring you in the face, you can't resist. This was just me browsing and taking a step into the craft aisle. Always dangerous for women.

I found myself flipping through a book of decorative scrapbook pages. The borders were so creative and modern, and I felt a connection with them...almost as though I designed them myself! They seemed to come out of my imagination!

I started to put the book in my basket...but then I stopped. What on earth would I DO with those artsy, decorative pages? Oh, sure, I could make a scrapbook (duh) or work on a collage or mod podge a frame or book cover. Yes, all those things I could do with this paper. But I didn't have a project in mind, and I have a half-used book of the same type of paper at home.

I really do like to be crafty, and it's good to have extras at home to *inspire* when I'm looking for a project to dig into, but I think for now, I'll leave the new scrapbook paper at the store as a treat for another day. And maybe between now and then I'll come up with a new project to dig into.

Maybe it will be a flower project...I sure seem to like taking pictures of flowers.
