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)

Even more scrapping has been done!

I seem to be getting loads of scrapping done at the moment - it's great. It's only because it was all over the kitchen and I didn't put it away for a few days, it makes me do it if I haven't got to drag it all out each time. My scrapbooking stash is kept in a cupboard upstairs and I have to scrap in the kitchen so it is not ideal and sometimes I just can't be bothered to get it all out. I have just put everything away now though and the only thing on the kitchen worktop is my cutting mat and my AMM tote bag :o) It looks lovely and tidy and I am happy!

I am also happy because I did a layout of Ben last night and I have just done a very quick one of Charlotte whilst I was cooking Spaghetti Bolognaise! It only took about 20 minutes and although it is really plain it looks beautiful in my album, I love it. Mind you I always love my most recent layout best!

Still not much going on here! Charlotte seems much better which is a relief but Ben is coughing now and I think he may be getting poorly!! If it's not one it's the other.

I was supposed to be having my mirrors fitted today but it is 4.30pm and it doesn't look like that is going to happen! We haven't been anywhere today as we had a lay in this morning. The kids were in Ben's bedroom trashing it and I decided to lay in bed and read a chapter of my book. Bliss! I had to get up though because Noodles (the cat) started crawling over my head reminding me that he, if no-one else, really wanted to be fed! I got up and sure enough Charlotte had taken every one of her teddy's to Ben's bedroom and they were having a tea party with Ben's toys, bless them - but what a mess lol.

I am going to take the kids to Jump tomorrow as they have been stuck in the house all day. They can't even go in the garden because it is so horrible and rainy outside!

Well, Mum is coming over tonight for a scrappy evening so I am looking forward to that :o)
