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)

I did! For the first time this month I actually cut n stuck some paper. I made a layout of Charlotte on the beach. The photo's were taken on our first holiday with the children on a particularly horrible day on the beach! It was a lovely sunny day but the beach was far too hot and the sand was far too gritty for children aged just over one and just over two. We stayed on the beach for all of about 30 minutes before packing up and going to the safety of a swimming pool instead! Having said that I got some lovely snaps of Charlotte on the beach which enabled me to do this layout so it wasn't a wasted day after all.

I have just found out about a crop that is going on in Cornwall next Saturday so I will be going along to that and I am really looking forward to it. I usually go to a crop in Exeter (which I love and will still be going to when I can get there) but I haven't been able to go for a few months so I can't wait till Saturday now :o)

I am off now as I want to watch the Big Brother eviction! Sad, I know, but I have to admit that I am a fan. I first watched BB2 and I think they have gone downhill since then but I always watch it in the hope that it will be better this year!!
