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)

Sneaky Peek

I kept Charlotte home from School today because she is really poorly, poor little thing. Her nose is red raw from rubbing it and she breaks her heart when I try to put some cream on it because she wants it wiped off. Also, she did get a spot on her arm today which means it could be chicken pox but it has gone down now so maybe not!!! If she is still bad tomorrow I am going to take her to the doctors because she has got a terrible cough as well.

Ben has still been going to school, but he is not happy about it and keeps trying to convince me that he is poorly as well! What is it with boys? He is coming home from school every day at the moment looking like someone has dragged him through a muddy field! He is only five, it can only get worse than this! My washing machine is going to overheat if I do any more washing!

I have just done a layout :o) It is for a design team call so I can't show it all to you but here is a sneaky peak. Actually, I am not convinced I am going to be successful with this as I am still having problems with my scanner and the colours look all wrong and mismatched on the scan which they aren't :o( I have taken a photo of it on the easel so I hope that will suffice for the submission - it is a shame because the layout looks really pretty in real life. As you can see I have used Basic Grey's Tutti Frutti paper for this. I know it is an old one but it is my favourite ever patterned paper in the whole wide world, so there! lol.

I have to do one more layout for this dt call so I had better get cracking!!
