North Dakota State Fair July 2010

Finally the first day of the fair has arrived!

The weather?  Just as you might imagine ... rain and about 66 degrees!

As you know Little Companion had really worked on her art the past few months. She entered four pieces.
For her all brush media entry she received an honorable mention. This picture is a unicorn planet (in case you are wondering).

For her colored pencil mechanical teapot, an honorable mention.

For her pencil drawing of what appears to be a cross between a VW bug and an RV, she won a third place ribbon.

For her mixed media watercolor on crayon Indian she won a second place ribbon.

We were all very happy to see her art work displayed. This was the first year she has ever entered and her art work was judged against kids as much as 2 years older. She loves all her ribbons but she really has her eyes set on a blue one for next year!

We had a great time looking at all the creative work displayed. Of course we spent a lot of time looking at the crochet and quilts. A lot of beautiful work was displayed and we enjoyed the time.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!
