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)

Mini Maze Book

Ben and Charlotte have been really enjoying their first week back at school. I think that they really NEED to go to school after such a long break - they miss it.

I have been scrapping over the last couple of days. I did a layout yesterday which I can't show here because it is an upcoming Wednesday class on Mojoholder. I will let you know when the class is online but for the moment here is a sneaky peak of it!

Today I have been getting some washing done and having a bit of a tidy up. Mind you there wasn't much to tidy because although I planned to sit and do nothing the day the kids went back to school I actually gutted the house and cleaned right through (even sweeping up the front and back garden) - I was shattered at the end of the day lol.

This afternoon Mark had an afternoon off but he has gone to play golf so I had a little play and made a mini maze book. It is so cute - only 2" square. I made it by using a piece of 8" x 8" double sided Scenic Route patterned paper (cardstock weight) to make the book instead of a piece of 12" x 12" cardstock.

Mark and I are on a bit of a healthy eating drive at the moment and I want to make some kind of chicken and vegetable risotto for tea so I am off the browse the net for a recipe now. I will probably end up making it up in the end! I hope it is edible lol.
