My profile

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)

Packing has commenced

Well I the packing has begun! I do feel better now that I know I have started packing and I am really excited because it means it won't be long before I get back home. Here is the proof:

Mark has been away all weekend because he wanted to do Tough Guy (advertised as 'One of the hardest events the body can take') because he loves stuff like that. Personally, I can't think of anything more horrible lol - I would much rather sit at home and read a book, do some scrapping or some cross stitch! Am I old before my time? I am certainly not fit enough to do Tough Guy! Hell, I wouldn't be fit enough to an obstacle course at Ben's school :D

He has rung me this afternoon to say that he did it, I expect he will come home brandishing the medal and I will probably do a layout of it lol, He is on his way home as I write.

I have been doing a layout on and off today. I got a bee in my bonnet about the way I wanted to display multiple photos on a layout (which was inspired by a magazine ad) and I just had to get it done. I used the January Scrapagogo kit which has been virtually untouched since it arrived due to various things. I had great fun with some metallic rub ons which I rubbed all over the cardstock to enhance the texture and alter the colour, I have used bronze and blue rub ons (not from the kit), the colours don't really show in the photo. I apologise for the bad image but my scanner is packed so I will get a proper image of it when I have moved (yippee!!!).
