National For Pete's Sake Day

Yes it truly is National For Pete's Sake Day today! That little fact got me thinking about what other idioms there are out there and which ones would make great scrapbook page titles! Here's a few of my favorites:

Don't count your chickens before they're hatched.
A fool and his money are soon parted.
Rather the devil you know.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
The more the merrier.
A picture paints a thousand words.
When the cat's away, the mice will play.
His bark is worse than his bite.
Between a rock and a hard place.
Back to square one.
Barking up the wrong tree.
Actions speak louder than words.
Close but no cigar.
Curiousity killed the cat.
Dog days of summer.
Down to the wire.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Everything but the kitchen sink.
Go out on a limb.
From rags to riches.
Finger lickin' good.
Head over heels.
Icing on the cake.
It takes two to tango.
Let sleeping dogs lie.
Method to my madness.
Knock on wood.
New kid on the block.
On pins and needles.
Out of the blue.
Pedal to the metal.
Rise and shine.
Practice makes perfect.
Starting from scratch.
The best of both worlds.
To make a long story short.
Three times the charm.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
You are what you eat.
You can't take it with you.
Variety is the spice of life.
Rome wasn't built in a day.

Now go out and use one of these on your pages this weekend!

  1. Barbra,
    Love this. I'm inspired to make a layout using one.
    What a great idea.
