Best of Show!

So I entered scrapbook layouts into our county fair and today was judging day. I have never entered anything in the fair before, and since I've only been scrapping since September 2008, I was a little nervous!

I entered 5 out of 6 categories. I placed in all of them! I couldn't believe it! But what really shocked me (in a good way!) is that one of my layouts took Best of Show! Wow!!!

Here's a picture of Kim Garner judging, who is on the DT for my local scrappy store, Scrapaganza and also on the DT for Rusty Pickle.

Here is my "beginner's category" entry. This is the one that took best of show.

This was my entry for the "paper manipulation" category. It took a first ribbon.

My entry in the "purchased elements" category got a second place ribbon.

And my entries in the "memorabilia" and "mixed media" categories got third place ribbons. I really didn't expect to place with these two layouts at all, so that was a surprise! In fact, all I hoped for at all was to get one ribbon, any place, and I'd have been happy. What a wonderful boost to find out all my pages took ribbons!

Thanks for looking!
