Awards and Rambles

~ Last year at the OC Fair I walked away with 4 ribbons, 1st thru 4th. But them the theme was more to my liking and I was able to apply myself better! You can see those entries here.
This year the theme was odd. "Say Cheese!" They never really emphasized on the theme until a week before the fair opened! I just could not get myself into it this year. I entered 6 items and came away with 2 ribbons. I'm hoping to win the judges over with a hot artichoke dip I'm entering on the 20th for a "live" judging.

~ Here is a crown I made for the recycled division. It was not until after I made and entered it that I realized I should have used cheese wrappers! But instead I used chip and candy wrappers to make up the "Junk Food Queen" She got a Honorary Ribbon!

~ Since I'm so infatuated with my birds nest creations, I thought of playing up to the fair theme with a birds nest photo bracelet and placed 3rd! Not bad.

~ I Like my stamped and embossed ornament but felt it really needs more dimension. At least it sparked some idea's for Christmas ornaments!

~ I made a elaborate mini book for the Scrapbook section. I was inspired by "Sex and the City"
Please go here to see all the inside pages I made for this book!

~ This "Cow" was my attempt to combine the two fair themes in to one. Ghastly is it not?
When the fair is over, I'm going to re-do it and list it in my shop.

~ Lastly, simple and sweet. I love this bracelet! I even made the acrylic charms!
