My Fair Baby

Yesterday my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and I took Peanut to her very first county fair.

It was a bajillion degrees and extremely crowded. Blech! We didn't stay very long. 

Of course my sister-in-law and I had to check on how our Home Arts projects faired in the judging and take pictures of our items on display. This was my main motivation for even wanting to 

My digital scrapbook took 1st place in its category:

My vacation scrapbook got a 5th place:

Neither of my sewing items placed. No shame there considering I'm an extreme novice. You should have seen the incredible pieces they were up against! Not gonna lie, I swelled with pride when I saw them on the display shelves even though there were no ribbons there. Regardless of how well they did, I made those and other people saw them. :)


I kinda wish they would have at least straightened the letters before putting it on the shelf. Oh well.
My sister in law did pretty well with her gift wrapping and baked good projects. This is sort of pathetic, but we're already planning projects and categories to enter for next year. The 2010 fair isn't even over yet!


  1. I think the crooked letter look great! And congrats on the placing in the other categories.

    I can't believe how big Peanut has gotten.

  2. Oh my gosh she is ADORABLE!!! and you made some really cute stuff :)

  3. Cute scrapbooks! I wish I could flip through them to check em out!

    Thanks so much for linking up. Hope you'll swing by ever Saturday!


  4. Wow congrats on winning. Really cute 2nd layouts - makes me want to go relax on a beach.
    I'd love if you linked up to my Scrappy Saturdays.
