I’m a scrap-booking addict of epic proportions. I live in a little sea-side village off the east coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa. I share my life with my hubby and seven dogs and I count myself very lucky to have them. I have a beautiful daughter who is now 24 and whom I am very proud of and love dearly. I am also godmother to little Isabella, my niece whom I also love to bits.
Whilst scrapping is my number one hobby, I am also an avid reader and I also enjoy taking long walks with my dogs.
I really do enjoy the simple pleasures in life and one of my greatest pleasures have to be a long hot bath at the end of the day and then getting into my bed. I have a thing for crisp, white cotton sheets that smell like sunshine and summer. I’m addicted to coffee and drink far too much of it. I love the smell of the earth after the rain. I love the exuberant way my dogs greet me every morning and the new challenges brought on by every new day. I love the cry of a fish eagle and I am passionate about wildlife and animals in every respect. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Cathy

GDT project for Scrap Melody
I am extremely honored to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for the blog "Scrap Melody". Have a little peek at their blog at :http://scrap-melody.blogspot.com/2012/05/blog-post_2127.html . The theme is blues or jazz and the twist is to use either notes or a treble clef or both on the project. When I saw this picture of Milana, my step grand-daughter I was totally inspired by Frank Sinatra's "Come Dance With Me". To make the treble clef I simply threaded some beads onto wire and twisted it in the shape of a treble clef..I love working with beads :) I had so much fun doing that and proceeded to make a beaded bow which you can see underneath the flower on the left. Thanks for looking..I hope you like it :)
