A Happy Find

Happiness is finding something you knew was missing but gave up on looking for (why can't I write a sentence without a dangling participle?) 

I moved back in December and as I packed up my craft supplies I thought I was very organized.  Apparently I wasn't because to this day there are several things I can't find and for the most part have given up on.  So it was a most happy moment when I stumbled upon my Stampin' Bella stamps.  They now occupy a easy to find spot. 

This week the inspiration photo on Pinspiration is of two fairies in a garden so I got to ink up one of my freshly found Bellas.

I hope my Stampotiques turn up soon.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Stampin' Bella "Maisy Ketto"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Stampin' Up "Orchid Opulence", and "Pale Plum" cs, "Patterns Pack - Subtles" dsp;  K & Co "Susan Winget Spring Blossom" dp; Neenah Classic White Natural cs
miscellaneous - copics; Viva Glitter Liner "Holo Iridescent"; My Favorite things "Mini Rolled Rose" die-namics; Spellbinder's "Peony" and "Circle" dies; ribbon; Stampin' Up pearls; mini brads; lace

Here's the challenges"
Pinspirational #15 - photo
