Sadly this year's state fair has come to a close. I'll have to wait another 365 days until I can get a porkchop on a stick, a roast beef sandwich from the cattleman's stand, or an official state fair funnel cake.
This year was my third year entering and the first that I didn't win something in every class. The judging was a little ecentric, but hey, I scrapbook for me, not a panel of judges so I'm okay with that. :)
Here's the page that I entered in the "Fair Theme" scrapbook page category.

One of my favorite tools lately is the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Rosette dies. They come in 3 sizes (all shown here). The largest one comes on a single die, while the two smaller ones come on a single die. Even if you don't want to invest in a bigshot, you can run these through a Sidekick (smaller and easier to transport plus less expensive).
