New Mexico State Fair

It's September and fall so that means it's time for the New Mexico State Fair. The fair starts this Friday, last week I went to submit my entries for the fair. Last year was the first year I entered and I won first and second place on a couple entries. So I'm entering stuff again this year. I'm entering 4 things and I forgot to take a picture of 2 of them, so you'll see 2 now and 2 when I get them back on September 28. I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of them! So here's what I entered
All Occasions card (I don't have this picture but it's my favorite card that I'm entering)
A Christmas card (again no picture, but it's all glittery and pretty!)
Framed art--here it is...

I used the Charming set from the mini and I just love this set. Every card that I make with it is just so stunning and I love this frame. While it's away visiting the fair I'm trying to find a place in my stamp room to hang it when it comes back. Here are some close ups of the frame.

Note: Added 9/14

Went to the fair yesterday and found out this frame won 3rd. Not too bad. None of my cards won though. But there's next year right!

Pretty huh! I just love it and it came out so much better then I thought it would.
Ok and last but not least is the birthday card I entered. I love this card, and it would be so cute for a little girls birthday. Of course you could do the same thing but with the little boy bear.
I watercolored her and ran the background through my embossing plates.
And here's the inside!

She pops up inside, isn't that just the cutest thing ever!

Well those are my fair entries this year. I'm hoping to get to the fair soon so I'll let you know if I win!
