well after a very LONG journey we finally arrived in San Diego and ohhhh it's so beautiful !!!
We started off today by having breakfast overlooking the marina... Stunning!!! Then went down to Pacific Beach and took a stroll on the pier and happened to see some dolphins playing in the ocean, I'd like to think Kirsty would be impressed with that shot !!
Then we poodled on down to La Jolla and saw this little scene in one of the coves
Yes it's loads (I couldn't get them all in the shot) of seals just soaking up the sun, and if you wanted to go swim with them you could they just advised you to be careful... You don't say LOL
We spent the rest of the afternoon having a bit of retail therapy.... Now I know a post from the States is not complete without a shot of food.... And what was the first restaurant we visited.... Yep, you got it.... The Cheescake Factory, I'm not that bothered about their cheesecake, but I LOVE their mains, and here is one of my favs. It's a chicken salad sandwich on brioche .... Oh my it's soooooo yummy
I haven't got a clue what the pics are coming out like as blogger doesn't seem to be showing them in order, but I just know you can work out the difference between a sandwich a dolphin and a seal !!!


  1. oh man, the dolphin shot is pure class. You have to go to Fashion Valley Mall. Old Town and, if you have time, the zoo. It's world famous you know!
    Have fun, well more fun I mean

  2. oooohhhh all that and the CHA too???? Soooooooo jealous!

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
