My chance to go to Paper Tales!!!!! ...and other adventures at the Del

We are having such an amazing time here at the Del in San Diego!!  This resort is so beautiful here on Coronado Island.  We can't believe that 10 years have gone by so fast.  We are loving just laying on the beach!

I got to go to Paper Tales and meet up with a couple of friends!!!  When I walked into the store, I saw that it  had everything that makes my creative heart pound out of my chest!  My blog friend, Karin, works at this fantasy store.  I was so excited to get to meet her!
Karin and I hit it off from the very second I stepped through the door!  She is hilarious, sweet, witty, pretty and super creative!  I hated having to leave but had to get back to the beach:)
Karin and I 

I took a picture of all the loot I got while there! (I got it all out to look at and threw it on the bed while Ryan was in the shower)  I didn't need his heart stopping too! lol!  Hey I only get by here once every 36 years so I had to make the most of it!!! lol

 We later got back and laid our on the beach for ours in rented cabana for hours.  I loved that!  
We then went to a wonderful Seafood Restaurant Peohe's.  We sat on the water with a view of the San Diego skyline.  So beautiful:) We had a great bottle of Conundrum. 
Ryan got fried while he went deep sea fishing in the morning.
The food was amazing!!!
Not a good pic of me but you can see what the view was like.  We definitely were not in OKC! LOL

I want to end with this t-shirt I saw at breakfast.  So stinkin cute!!!!!!!


  1. Looks like you are having a wonderful time. Isn't the Coronado great? I do miss San Diego just a bit.
    Keep having fun and get your Sweetie some sun screen (())

  2. Oh please send some of that sunshine north to Washington. It is another dark and rainy day. At least I get to share in your sunshine, thanks for sharing.

  3. I am so jealous that you are in San Diego and went to Paper Tales. I have followed Michelle/Helle for years and never have been to the store since they opened. But I know it is a wonderful place and it sounds like you had fun..............Coronado Island is a heavenly place. Love it.
    Have fun on the remainder of your Anniversary Holiday. Remember to come back to your friends in Oklahoma

  4. Hi and what a gorgeous place! I love Coronado Island! We were blessed to stay at The Del two times! It's such a gorgeous place.
    I'm sure the scrap store was wonderful! I love to scrap but haven't been able to in a couple of years!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  5. Thanks for the sweet words about my studio. You should join the event next year! But, being at The Del is sooooooooooooo amazing that I know you are having a BLAST! The photos look like you are. AND Ryan is FRIED! Aren't you glad you shopped instead of fishing/frying. And your stash made my heart go pitter pat. You'll have to share it better when you aren't afraid of getting caught. Hee Hee I KNOW how that goes... "what this stuff? I've had it a long time" OK... does 30 minutes count as LONG? Enjoy! And congrats again on the 10 years! HUGS! Charlene

  6. Shelley, I like that "once every 36 years". Oh what fun! I wish I was there. I love your pics, they make me want to plan a vacation :)Sylvia

  7. Oh what a fun vacation! I have been to the Del once. So beautiful! I may have to take a trip down that way. I am about an hour and half away. Have fun and enjoy the beach!


  8. OmGosh!!! You were in myneck of the woods!!! Vignettes was right down the way from Paper Tales!! Boo Hoo!!I could have met you there!!! I got engaged at the del!! Isn't it amazing!!!??
