Last October, my parents, sister, niece and I went to the Texas State Fair in Dallas. This was a first for Parrish, Ellie, and I. I got lots of great pictures and we had a nice time (despite the fact that it was raining).
I have been working on this layout for over 2 months. It was one that I had to start and stop a lot, because I wanted to do some stitching, but wastn't sure how or where and I found myself putting it on the back burner time and time again.
Finally, I've finished it. I started by crumpling the yellow Cosmo Cricket paper and distressing it a bit. I folded some edges up and stitched all over it with the sewing machine. I printed out some little photos of Ellie enjoying the sights, added a few embellishments and journaling and finally called it done.
