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)

Park Life

Saturday mornings usually mean ballet class these days but as it is half term there is no class on today. Instead Ben and Charlotte have been playing around with my scrapbooking stuff!!! Actually, it is not as bad as it seems I have been making flowers and they have been cutting up the remnants of the patterned paper - when I say cutting up I mean into weany little pieces that are now all over the kitchen floor :o)

I went to Tesco the other day to buy some potatoes but as it is half term the little monsters were with me and the potatoes cost £25! That is because I decided to get sorted for halloween. Charlotte has already got her outfit but I bought her some tights to go with it and got Ben a skeleton outfit and a couple of glow in the dark swords, a fairy wand, some glow in the dark teeth, a large bowl to put sweets in and some sweets. I can't wait for Wednesday to get them all dressed up for their halloween party! i think I am more excited than they are.

Here are some photographs from our trip to the park the other day.

I have been scrapping this week when I get a chance. I have done my layout for Mojo (which went up last night), I am not going to put it here because I am not very happy with it. It was just one of those times when I just couldn't get into the groove! However, the original layout and the other girls efforts are amazing so please do pop over there and grab some inspiration.

I have also done my layout for next weeks All About Eve challenge - it's a good one and it goes live on Monday. Here is a sneak peak of mine.

I also completed this layout which I started at the Plymouth crop a couple of weeks ago. Again, it was one that I just couldn't fathom but I am happy with how it turned out in the end.

I did a layout this morning and I love it - so I am obviously getting my groove back lol. I can't share it though :o(
