Sometimes it takes longer for me to use a paper I love than one I don't love as much. I keep on waiting for the "perfect" layout for my "perfect" paper.
It is an absolute silliness, what's the point of having beautiful papers if I don't use them? I'm working on it - I used one of my favourite papers in my latest LO. It doesn't do the paper justice, but I am OK with that. And I still have another sheet with the same pattern in a blue background left... ;-)
