A Day in Corona Del Mar...

If you weren't aware, Marlene makes these great images and gives them away FOR FREE for 24 hours. To get them, you  need to check into her FANTABULOUS and ENTERTAINING blog every day.
You can also buy her images if you miss the freebie download at

Here is a card using one of Marlene's images and sentiments.  I made this birthday card for my dear friend.  

We had a lovely birthday celebration walking and shopping in Corona Del Mar.  It was great weather.  Here are some photos I took:
 We ate at a gastropub that is attached to this restaurant.  The Gastropub was called The Side Arm. The Stilton Mac and Cheese was awesome, as was their cheese and meats platter.

This barber shop allowed your dog to come in and sit at your feet as you got your hair cut.  I inquired- they only do men's hair.  (DARN!)

I passed by a florist shop and saw these displays. Gorgeous!

This is a new cheese store that opened up down there.  This is only a small selection of the available cheese.


  1. Heeheehee....I see you created with the Banana Hammock dude! He's looking mighty studly! LOL! I hope your friend appreciates my sense of humor. ;)

    Thanks for playing with him! Errrr...that didn't come out quite right.

    LOVE your, I wish I lived in California some days. (The days with no earthquakes).

  2. Mr Studly! I bet your friend liked her card! LOL!
    Wish I could take my dog in when I'm having a haircut...though my poodles have actually visited to say hello to the ladies!
    And look at that cheese! Yum!

  3. Your card is great fun and I'm sure your friend will love it! Man, that's a lot of cheese!!!

  4. Gotta love Marlene's images. You did a great job with it.
