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

Through Eyes Of Love
Hi there everyone:) Finally I got to finish my layout for the challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. It feels like I've been working on it for a whole month but the truth is that I have had the busiest six weeks of my life. So much to do and so little time and foumd myself scrapping through the night to get everything done. No time for scrapping during the day lately. Anyways, this is my take on Nadia's beautiful sketch, and this month the theme is all about LOVE. Now, for those of you who know me well enough, you will know that I totally connect that little four-letter word with my dogs, who are my life and my loves and who gives me so much more than I could ever wish to give. There are so many things I love, in fact I love everything on Nadia's little list but my canine children is always at the top of that list and always seem to be my priority, no matter what, much to my hubby's chagrin at times...lol! Well, this is Delta, one of my many shadows. She is now 3 years old and she never takes her eyes off me...hence the title of my page. Often I look at her and I wonder what she's thinking when she stares at me like she does, but it doesn't really matter because all I see is "LOVE" and that is all that counts. :) Oh dear, I could just go on and on about my dogs but best I show you the beautiful sketch before I forget.:)
