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)

Bam Pop-ping

Last night was the Plymouth crop. It was lovely to see everyone but, as usual, I was yapping a lot and only managed to get one ATC done. I gave that to Anna so I actually came home with nothing lol. Well, Anna loved the ATC and tried to steal it so I thought it would be nice to let her have it :o)

When I went to the Little Cottage Crafts workshop in December I won some Bam Pop papers in the raffle. Well these have been in my stack of papers ever since and every time I take them out to use on a layout I find something that seems to 'go' a bit better. It is not that I don't like the Bam Pop papers, in fact I really love them I just haven't had the right layout for them. Well, last night I set myself a challenge to use the papers on my next layout. I have done it today so here it is!

These papers really do 'pop', they are so bright and colourful!

Ben is home from school today. He felt really hot this morning and was complaining of feeling itchy so I thought it would be best to make sure he is ok. Actually, he seems fine now. I was probably being a a bit over protective but better safe than sorry. He is laying on the settee watching Spiderman and routinely sniping at Charlotte so I don't think there is much wrong with him now.

ETA: Here is a pic of the ATC I made last night. Anna kindly scanned it for me :o)
