Fun At The Fair Blog Hop ~ First Place!


Welcome to Fun At The Fair Blog Hop, hosted by Sandra of 365 Days of Cricut!  First of all I want to thank Sandra for inviting me to join her hop!  It's been awhile since I've been in a hop that doesn't have to do with any of the design teams I'm on!  You should have arrived here from Ana Maria, if not please head over to the start at Sandra's blog, so you don't miss a thing.
 
I have to say that it was a little stumped on what I would do for it.  I really wanted to think out side the box, and I think I did!  Of course when I was younger I thought the fair was all about the rides and the food!  But now that I'm more wise, I know that it's  about the "contests and the food"!  So I thought it would be fun to decorate a jar of gourmet jelly and a make a card to go with it.  Just as if I had won the "first" prize for the best jelly!  (like that would ever really happen)  Hey, in the blogging world anything can happen!  :)
