Sarah Youde (aka monroegirl)
Plymouth, UK.

I love to scrap and I love to stitch. I also love reading, eating and the odd glass of red wine! I only wish I had more time to do all the things I love. Most of my time is taken up looking after a couple of other things I love and they are my two gorgeous children Ben and Charlotte. They ARE gorgeous, I am not biased, I have been blessed with beautiful children which is a good thing because I have such wonderful subjects for my scrapbooking addiction.

I am married to Mark and we will celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary in July - we are just as happy now as when we first met. He would rather I didn't spend any money on scrapbooking or cross stitch stash but if I didn't do that I would be perfect and surely that would be really boring! Anyway, this blog is a sort of diary / gallery and I enjoy updating my blog for myself and my family but any visitors are welcome :o)

Kirsty's Scrap Yourself Challenge

Well I haven't really got into this blog thing yet, but I am sure I will eventually :)

I have spent the last couple of days being wowed by the fantabulous layouts that everyone is creating for Kirsty (wanna_scraps) 'Scrap Yourself' challenge. The work is utterly gorgeous and can be seen on the UK Scrappers BOM gallery.

I have ~ of course ~ done a lo for it myself. It is the first time I have really tried to do a 6 x 6 lo and I have to say I loved it. I used just scraps of patterned paper and card left over from other lo's which made me feel very frugal. That was until I used half a bottle of prima's and loads of brads too :). Anyhow, here it is!

I quite like it but I think I can do better so I may have another go at it next week. It is really an excuse to get my hubby to actually take some photo's of me and also to do another 6 x 6 lo - I loved it.
