Oh well all good things must come to an end...
The sun has shone, we managed FOUR trips to the cheesecake factory and no it doesn't just sell cheesecake!!!
Our second from last trip was with Kirsty,Amanda and Simon, Kirsty decided on one of the small burgers

Gosh... She's gonna kill me for that!!!
Although we mainly go in there for the main course meals (YUMMY) they are pretty damn good at cheesecake (as the name would imply), these are the 3 that Kirsty ordered ...

But she did let us share....thanks Kirsty.
While we were at Fairfax we saw Mario Lopez being interviewed (saved by the bell) if you remember that, then you're showing your age!!!
Then we went on to Laguna Beach.... Well what can I say .... STUNNING

Albeit empty!!! If you look closely me and rick are in a dinghy in the far distance... I wish!!!! (OK, admit it, who looked ?)
Looking forward to getting back home although not looking forward to the cold weather and the 11 hour flight... Hey ho !!

Oh the Cheesecake Factory.......please just let me drool. They make the yummiest of cheesecakes, if you have ever seen the calorie count on those just take it as a one off (last one I ate was over 1000 calories a slice)

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


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


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…
