Dragon Boat Races

Good Morning,

I have actually posted 3 different post today so scroll down to view all of them. I live in Youngsville and there is a development called Sugar Mill Pond that is along the same lines as River Ranch just a little smaller scale. I have only been here 5 years and this subdivision started after I moved here. They are always having different activities and anyone is invited to attend. Since I live right across the highway we go to some of the activities. Every year they have what is called Reaux for Miles Dragon Boat Races. It's to raise money for the Miles Perret Center. I had never gone before, but this year my husband and I decided to go. It starts very early in the morning and there are all these groups there to race to help raise money for this center. It's wonderful to see the boats gliding across the calm water. Some teams are very serious and some are just there to have a laugh. But one thing is the same across the board, they are there because they care!!!
I enjoyed taking pictures that moring and knew I would have to do a layout. I used Bazzill dotted cardstock, K& Company paper for my matting of the pictures, I put together different swirlie stamps in the bottom corner, stamped a few dragon flies, stickled on top those, bling, and took different fibers and twisted them together for the dragons fire. A couple of the dragonflies are stickers that I put on black cardstock cut them out and then used the Perfect Pearls to give it a stained glass look.
