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)

A Poorly Little Poppet

I am feeling tired today.

Charlotte was terribly sick last night, poor little thing! I won't go into detail because it would be too much information and not pleasant reading for you. Thankfully Mum popped over to help me clear it up but I didn't sleep great as Charlotte then shared the bed with me and kicked me in the back all night!

Anyhow, I haven't done much today and don't plan to do anything this evening. I am just going to watch the telly and browse the web on the laptop so that I can relax on the sofa :o)

I have been sorting out my favourite websites today and categorizing them a bit better. I have so many scrapbooking sites in my favourites that they are now in sub-categories (Blogs, online stores, inspiration etc). Talking of inspiration and challenge blogs I found Mojo Holder this week and it is fab - if you like Scrapjacked then go here (especially if your mojo needs a kick up the butt).

Yesterday Jakey was teasing us on her blog and on SIStv about some big announcement that she had to make. Well it was worth the wait because a new challenge blog was launched and it looks great. Go and have a look at All About Eve (have the love it as it is a Marilyn Monroe film title), it looks like it is going to be a great inspiration for all those layouts you have been meaning to do of yourself!

However, my mojo has been fine lately and I have done loads of scrapping over the last couple of days - it is best to do it when you are feeling creative isn't it?

I need to get my submission of for the Pencil Lines DT call tomorrow. I don't know why I am bothering to enter really but loads of people are so I may as well give it a go - you never know. I would love to be part of it, it has such a well respected team and exciting challenges and guests - I love it.
