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)

I made this....

I wanted some way to store my 6 x 12 layouts. Well, I had only done one 6 x 12 layout but I wanted to make an album and I thought that this would be as good a size to make as any. So, from this:

The Supplies

I made this:

The Album

The Inside

The inside of the album is has strips of 3 x 12 inch card with holes punched in them so that the layout can be stuck straight to the card and is then in the album and the pages can be turned. I wasn't worried about page protectors or anything like that because I just want to use the 6 x 12 size for quick layouts or layouts where I want to try something out, you know what I mean. Anyway, I set out to achieve this tonight and I did.

Just showing how I am attaching the layouts

Also, I had to do a quick 6 x 12 layout to put in the album so that there was more than one layout in there so I did the All About Eve challenge to scrap your age - eeeeek.

Quickie Layout

I managed to get quite a bit done tonight considering I was yapping to the lovely Kirsty until about 8.30pm. She kindly remembered that her daughters now unwanted cuddly toy is the same as my daughters beloved and ragged cuddly toy and is going to send it to me as a spare (although I am sure it will be loved together with the current one!). The toys were both bought in Spain so I cannot get a spare, I had noticed it on Kirsty's blog in February and she remembered it and got in touch - I am flabergasted!! Thank you Kirsty, Charlotte is going to be beside herself with joy!

Congratulations to Beckie Dreyer and Kimmy Sonksen for making the Rusty Pickle DT!!!

Sooo excited that Mark comes home on Friday - it can't get here quick enough.
