DOLPHINS, SEALS AND BRIOCHE...

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 !!!

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!

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…
