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)

Bad Girls Top Designer - Class 2!!

I uploaded my entry for Class 2 of the Top Designer contest over at Bad Girls this morning and when I got back from university (just went for pre-enrolment session) I had loads of comments! It makes me feel all happy lol.

The class was to create a layout with texture and dimension which is exactly the kind of layout that I love :) This was my entry:

Sugar and Spice

Close Up

The black paint does go all the way around the edge of the cardstock but I couldn't get it in the picture. I have just got to wait until Friday now to see if I get through to the next round. Either way I can't wait to see what the next class is :o)

Back to uni! I only went for pre-enrolment and it just brought it all back to me and what hard work it is going to be - to be honest I am terrified! Why can't I get paid to scrap? Then I wouldn't have to go back. Even better do you think a computing degree would accept and exceptional layout instead of a final project, or maybe a little bit of cross stitch for the examiners home?? mmm I didn't think so!
