Falling Behind

Hello everyone! I bet some of you read the title and thought this post was about getting behind in work. Some of you, however, know what falling behind means this time of year. On Sunday, those of us living in a time zone that recognizes Daylight Savings Time, had to set our clocks back an hour.

Personally, I find the whole time change confusing. To help me remember, I think of the phrase "Spring Ahead, Fall Behind." Fortunately, the fall time change isn't so bad because we feel like we're getting an extra hour of sleep, but in spring ... watch out!! We are all out of whack for at least a week because we "lose" an hour. It's like jet lag without the flying! (Okay, maybe not as bad as jet lag, but it's still an adjustment.)

By now, you're probably wondering why I'm writing about the time change on a scrapbook blog. Here's the correlation:

The sentiment is part of a stamp set with animal puns. I wanted to apply it in a different way. Instead of using a bee or any other kind of annoying buzzing creature, I thought outside the box and applied the sentiment to an alarm clock! 

I like to take stamps and apply them in unique ways. It is a fun way to challenge myself, and it also adds an element of surprise to the card.

Now, it's your turn. Go ahead, tear down the side of that box and start thinking outside of it!
