Here is some inspiration for you from the design team...  

A digi I've had for a while and forgot about! 

I've had this digi for ages and never used it.  The foam I used to make the fish I've also had for ages, and the Martha Stewart punch I forgot I had!!!

I've used an older digi and a few other supplies I had in my stash. 

I Had a good spring clean of lots of old stash!!

Unused stamp and papers that I've had for ages...

I used scraps that i had lying around and ribbon cut offs.

Now its over to you....lets see what you can find in that stash thats never been out for a while!
