Trudie aka "Scrapbrat Designs"
Here's a little bio about her in her own words so you can get to know Trudie better:
"My name is Trudie Botha otherwise known as Scrapbrat Designs in the Scrapbooking world. I'm 39 years "young" and from sunny South Africa from a little town called Vaalpark.
I'm divorced, but I do have a wonderful, caring and devoted love in my life. I've got 3 kids, 2 girls (Charne-21 and Claudia-10) and there is also my son, Damian-11. They are my everything and reason for living. In short they keep me happy and I love them to bits!
I also have a small zoo at home which consists of a Chihuahua puppy, 2 cats, a 3 month old african grey parrot and a few other birds.
Okay here is a few things about me that you didn't know....
I'm an only child.
I adore anything whimsical/fantasy!
I absolutely love tigers and butterflies.
Love my music, just hate it when it's too quiet around me.
I'm totally in love with my laptop, would have taken it to bed with me if I could!
I started scrapbooking in 2007 by accident. One night I was looking for pictures about fairies when Google suggested a site which had the most beautiful "pictures" of fairies but it also included photos (Which i didn't know then was called layouts!). I immediately fell in love with that kind of creativity and read for hours on end about it and so wished I could be so talented to do something like that. Later on I applied to be a creative team member for designers and by then the bug bit me hard! In the meanwhile I played for hours on my Photoshop and tried my hand in discreet at designing. When I look back now, those kits were horrible!! Before long I signed up for every designing competition there was and although I didn't do as good as I wished I enjoyed every minute of it because I learned new things.
I was accepted as a designer in 2009 and still enjoy it very much and hope to better my designing skills a lot more."
