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

This is my take on the current challenge ending 31st July over at Once Upon A Sketch. And here is the very talented Nadia's sketch.
We spent the afternoon at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary during my visit to my family in Australia at the beginning of July and as usual Isabella makes it her life's ambition to befriend every conceivable animal we come across. She firmly believes that the path to friendship is through the tummy and if she can just feed them then all is well and good :) Love this child so much :)
