Must come to an end !!!
Well, we spent our last day here at San Diego (sheds tears) it has been the most amazing week, this city is beautiful, everyone is so happy and nice, possibly because they live in such a gorgeous place.:) :)
We went to downtown and just caught the last of a Chinese festival ( even though I'm loading these photos in order, I know they're not necessarily coming out in order... Don't like this new blogger app)
We then went down to the front where there were some rather impressive ships, one of them being the Medway or Midway, I can't remember the name #fail !!! Anyhoo's it's a rather impressive US Navy aircraft carrier.
Whilst Ricky isn't a Navy Seal or anything like that, I really do have the best husband in the world, he drove me around San Diego taking me to scrapbook shops, Target, Michaels etc and not once complaining, so to say thank you I treated him to getting his teeth done !!
We then went on to see the sun go down at La Jolla, this place is rather spechhhh !!
And I couldn't leave without getting one last shot of this gorgeous little seal just playing in the ocean.
Our next stop is CHA. So the next lot of photos will be all about craft and maybe a bit of food.
I was able to speak to my wonderful mum this morning via FaceTime...... Technology... You gotta love it !!!!
Well apart from Blogger and the photo sort LOL !!

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…
