LRW Beads

I haven't played along at LRW in a while. This week's challenge is to use beads. I love beading and have tons of beads. I made this card for my sister in laws as they just moved into a new house. I strung pink seed and bugle beads and wound the length around my card several times. I really like the effect!

We got to see their new home during our recent weekend trip to St. John's, Newfoundland. The first day was typical rain, drizzle and fog (RDF to locals). You could barely see Fort Amherst from Signal Hill. The city itself was entirely shrouded in fog.

Then the sun came out and we went to Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America. What a view!

National Service Dogs Crop

This past weekend, a scrapbook friend Dianne hosted a charity crop for National Service Dogs. She is currently raising "Lindor" and is a dedicated volunteer for the program. It was a fantastic day crop with great food, tons of generously donated prizes, games and a bake sale. Several new puppies in the program were special guests. This little guy was too cute! We love Goldens and have had many in our family.

My mom attended with me and she made some great cards. Her first ever! I had lots of layouts to catch up on. I started with this TSF kit that I have had for a long time. It was the last layout in my album of our trip to the German Alps in March 2009. It seems most of my layouts of that trip are of eating and drinking!

Next I did this layout of our trip to Florida last summer.

I finished off the day with this layout of our trip to the Singapore Botanic Gardens last summer. Did I mention it was hot there?!!

What a fantastic day. Thanks Dianne!

I love the sketches over at ilovesketches. I recently made this layout of our trip to Vaduz, Liechtenstein using sketch #2. Thanks Joanne!
