Prize winning entries into Newington Fair

I entered a few layouts and cards into our County Fair, five entries to be exact - and every entry placed!  This was the first year I've exhibited in the fair.  I think this was a good debut if I do say so myself. 

The first category was "Enjoying the 2010 county fair" so I did a photo of my daughter standing next to the sign that dictates if you are tall enough to ride on the ride.  She is a shorty, and well, she never did get to go on any rides that year.  I took the idea for the title from a Beatles tune "Ticket To Ride"

Journaling reads:
You are not quite tall enough to ride the rides yet at the Newington Fair.  Maybe next year you will get your "Ticket To Ride"  Vanessa Sept 2010
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey (Cappella), Echo Park (Sweet Summertime - yellow polka dot), Little Yellow Bicycle (measuring tape), Echo Park (Walk In The Park - letters), Bazzil Basics - cardstock
Embelishments: Girls Paperie (brads), Basic Grey - Opaline (bling), Prima (rub-on & flowers) Dollar Store (flowers and doily), seam binding ribbon, October Afternoon (twine)
Machine stiching and typewriter.

The Second layout I'm calling School Days. The category for this exhibit was photos earlier than 1960. This is a photo of my late father, taken around 1956.  

Journaling reads:

Dad, I know you weren't very scholarly. But you were one of the wisest men I have ever known.  You use to know the answer to every question we asked as kids, and when you didn't know the answer you would make something so farfetched up that we had no choice but to laugh!  I miss your wisecracks, your smart ass remarks and your tough lessons that you taught me.  Life isn't the same without you here.  Frederick Paul Rice Sept 19 1948 - Nov 23 2008, photo taken 1956

Patterned Paper: background paper - unknown, Bazzil Basics - cardstock, Bo Bunny - Timepiece collection (subtitles and watches)
Embellishments: 7Gypsies - key, Ranger -Ultra Thick embossing powder, twine
Other: Cricut, and old typewriter font for journaling

The other layouts you should recognize from previous posts Avonmore Berry Farm, and Baby's First Halloween. I've added links to the previous posts so you can see close up's of those two layouts.
