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)

A Busy Blogger

Well I have to say that I am really enjoying taking part in the HS:MS photo blog. I t is great fun trying to think of something to take a photo of that fits in with the word of the day! In case you are wondering where my photographs actually are, I created a separate blog for them as I didn't want this one to turn into just a photo blog. You can see my pics at Sarah and the Camera - there is a link in the right hand menu.

I have also been sorting out a gallery for my layouts. I was getting fed up of the slide thingy scrolling on my site so if you want to see my layouts you can click the layout animation at the top of the right hand colomn of this blog. Or click HERE.

I still love the SIStv forum but I was a little disappointed in the catwalk this week. Not because of the people who were chosen but because 18/20 of the Fashionistas had chosen a layout using the Kelli Crowe collection that the site sold last month. I got bored about half way down the list and stopped looking. I saw dozens of absolutely fabulous layouts being uploaded last week that didn't use the KC Collection! Something like the catwalk should surely show a variety of talent, it is there to inspire people who are viewing it and not to promote products the site sells (well, maybe that is what they were doing so that people buy the next collection). I am glad I didn't buy the KC collection, I am sick of it already!

I don't like being controversial but this really bugged me this week as I look forward to seeing the catwalk so much!
