Woo hoo! I won 14 ribbons at the county fair for my layouts

I have been gone on vacation this week and am now home.  I have been waiting all week to show off my fair ribbons.  This year one of my daughters talked me into entering some of my layouts in the County fair.  I had never done anything like this before.  We took the guide and went through categories and I entered 6 single page layouts and 8 double page layouts in different categories.  These were all pages I had done this past year and I did no special pages for entries.  I was so thrilled when we got to the fair and  I won 14 ribbons- 8 !st, 2 2nd, 1 3rd and 3 Honorable Mentions.  Then when I went to pick up my layouts and ribbons I found out I won $37.  Remembering you can click on the pictures to make them bigger if you want to see which layouts I won the ribbons for.  
Here are the first prize winning layouts

  3. How Exciting Suzanne! Isn't it fun seeing those ribbons on your layouts! All your layouts are Great and I think I'm almost as excited as you are, lol! I entered only four this year and won Blue ribbons on them but the exciting thing was McCade entered two pottery projects he did (he took a class with 4-H this year) and won two blue ribbons at our Local Fair so then they went to the State Fair (Kentucky) now which just started Aug 18th so we need to go see it up in Lousiville KY! I'm more excited for him, I already told him I'm putting it on the blog when he gets them all back, lol! Congrats again!
