I Found BELLA's

I'm trying to savor what little time is left of my vacation. Some of the highlights of the past week. I finally got to met Vicki in real life. On Wednesday we met up at a LSS relatively close to her and where I had pre-ordered my new copic markers. The new marker colors are fantastic, I love how pale they are. We had a really good time, shopping, laughing and enjoying lunch.

One of the other things I've been attempting to do this week is try and visit some other LSS that I normally don't have time to get to. The one closest to me is part of a "Summer Stroll", where you get a pass for a discount at all of the participating stores. The pass is good until Labor Day and out of 10 stores I only have 4 to go.

So, yesterday I figured I'ld try to hit 2 of the stores just south of where I live. Well, the first store I went into had an entire display of Bella Stamps. I don't mean one or two like the store Vicki & I were at but a big display full. Then to make it even better they were all 30% off - JACKPOT!! The had a bunch of different Bellas, Tiddly Inks, Huggabuggs and some other images. Unfortunately no Kettos and they were out of some of the newer Bellas. But that's ok my online Bella order is just about complete I just need to finalize and hit submit.

This is one of the 'new' Bella's I picked up yesterday. There were several Bella's I wanted and just hadn't gotten around to ordering yet so the timing was perfect. The best part is I added my name to their mailing list and will be notified when new Bella orders come in. In addition to the Bella's they also had tons of Amuse some MFT and more. I guess with a name like "Bella Art" it only makes sense they carry Stamping Bellas I can't wait to go back.

I also acquired some Shimmerz to try during my 'Summer Stroll'. Vicki told me it's awesome to add just a little extra sparkle. I bought a couple of different colors but unfortunately the one I used on Tinker-abella doesn't show up to well in the photo.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.
