Just a quick update...will write more hopefully tonight cause I have a lot to talk about but...here are the results from my fair entries....
My black & white pictorial received 2nd place:
My black & white flower picture won 1st!!:
Then my black and white fair scene pic won first also!! Isn't that cute...my hubby's face won me first place!! Love ya honey...and he didn't want me to enter this picture...I'm glad I went with my instincts on this one.
I also won first for my ripple afghan, second for my indian afghan and third for my infant afghan (which shocked me). Though I didn't get any ribbon for my scrapbook...which I was really disappointed about, but people around here just don't get the art of scrapbooking so I'm not totally shocked either, though people told me that they loved my work, which means more than a ribbon truly anyway...but I'm just so tickled with how well I did with my photography this year...I've competed in photography for the past 3 years with nothing...this year I got three ribbons! I'm so excited...I feel like my photgraphy has truly evolved in the last year especially...I get the difference between a picture and a photograph...it's truly an art...one that I hope to continue to grow in over the years...I'm so blessed...God has bestowed me with some amazing gifts...I give Him all the glory for what I do withthe gifts He has given me...I feel this year, actually the last two years, have been so full of growth for me...and this coming year and the next...so much on the horizon...so much change in store for me...but that is for the next post....not right now...
Well getting ready to take the family to the fair this afternoon along with our neighbors probably. Can we say cotton candy and greasy fries?!?!
