A DAY FOR SIGHTSEEING

It started off really sunny and then just as we were about to go out the door it became overcast, made our way to downtown Chicago and went to NAVY PIER.
We were recommended to take the architectual tour or as I would call it the boredom tour, basically it's a boat ride that takes you through a part of the city looking at the buildings, ZZzzzz, ZZzzzz oops sorry I must having dropped off again, BUT it was a good excuse to sit and close my eyes and have a breeze blow on me, By the way by this time the sun has come out in FULL. Check out this piccy, you can even tell the necklace I was wearing, needless to say I'll be putting sun lotion on today.

We then went on to see Soldier Field the home of the CHICAGO BEARS (very impressive) and then to Wrigley Field the home of the CHICAGO CUBS (in case there's any men reading this)

Back homewards bounds (hotel) and to do a bit more shopping, Jane if you're reading this, I think I got you mag today. then obviously we needed some food, I should have bought eleasticated trousers with me. we went to the CHEESECAKE FACTORY and I had the best pizza EVER, Chicken with Pine Nuts, it was amazing, ricky had a lovely pasta dish followed by STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE for ricky and RASPBERRY & LEMON CHEESECAKE for me.

THANKS MUM, this one was on you. xxxxx

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
