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)

Out and About

We went to see the Simpson movie the other day and it was quite good. I wouldn't rave about it but I suppose it is worth seeing. I think sometimes you get hyped up about a film and it just doesn't live up to you expectations it will probably be better on a second viewing.

Also this week we went to the Barbican and had a little walk around and ate the obligitory bag of chips. Mark and I took some photographs of the Mayflower Steps so I could put them on my blog for any American readers could see where the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from. A lot of people who live in Plymouth moan about it and I agree that there are things to moan about but I love Plymouth. I think when you live in a place that is on the coast on one side, has moorland on another and is the gateway to Cornwall you can't complain about your location - it is only the weather that spoils it!

We are all getting excited about going on holiday on Saturday. I can't wait as I love staying in the big mobile home type caravans and Haven is such a good place for the kids (not that I have been before but I am sure it will be great fun for them). It is just nice to get away for a little while.

I had a lovely box of stash from Scrapgenie the other day. I am packing my tote express and taking it with me to the caravan, you never know I may get some scrapping done! I can't stop looking at all the goodies and I just don't want to leave it all at home.

I have completed my DT layout for Mojo Holder and the new layouts will go live tomorrow night so be sure to take a look at everyone's layouts. Here is a little sneaky peak of mine.
