all about me

Welcome! If you've come from Kitty Scrapper, thanks for stopping by, if you're just checking out my blog, there's a blog hop going on today, hosted by Mel, you can go back to the start, or follow along from here.


The wonderful Deb sent me some altoids tins, cause I'm a bit of a stickler for following projects.


I'm still shopping my stash, and rediscovered the American Crafts Amplified range


The paint on the tin is still tacky, as they only arrived yesterday, but I love the end result


"time for tea and a tart" is often seen on facebook


I'm not sure how I would cope if we ever ran out


I asked friends for words to describe me


It's a different store to the American one, but it's my one-stop shop


Winter only lasts a couple of months in Queensland, but it's still my favourite


I had forgotten about this quote, but it still speaks to me


I spend a lot of time at my desk, working, playing, reading


collections 
{I didn't have any "c"s left}


iPod Touch, and facebook


I love to bake for my family

Now you're off to check out CurlyScrapbooker. Happy scrapping!

  11. Ok, Cate. You are amazing! I am VERY impressed that you were able to use that tin with such a short timeframe - I never thought it would arrive in time for you to use it for this project, and I'm so glad it did.

    I love your book! Love the quotes you used and the papers and design. My favorite page is the Facebook comments you copied and printed. VERY clever! :o)
