LMCB # 109 "Hometown" - The State Fair

Good Sunday Afternoon!!  I have a fun layout to share with you for the newest challenge over at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges.

"My Hometown"
is the theme of the challenge.
Scrap about anything that tells a little something about your hometown or where you grew up as a child.  This could be a memory, moment, annual event, school spirit,  simply the personality of where you live... so many different avenues for this one!!

This happens to be my current hometown.  I grew up about 45 minutes away.  So I guess you would say I stay close to the nest.  Every year we have a Annual State Fair that bombards our streets!  10 days of traffic jams, parades, concerts and lots of fun.


And here are some close-ups...


I was determined to use LOTS of photos.  I think I still have 30 more from the day.  

I am also entering this into the latest challenge over at Just Add Ink # 10 where it's a color challenge to use BRIGHT colors!  Being that the fair photos are all over the place with different happenings... I loved the idea of using bright, bold rainbow colors.  Says happy and cheery to me!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I hope you find some time to join Lasting Memories and show us a little about your Hometown.
Challenge closes Saturday, 10/13 at 6pm EST.
We are also looking for a Guest Designer for November!!  Be sure to put GDT after your name.

Love your 2 pager, especially how you incorporated so many fun shapes, colors & patterns! I'm thinking hard on what I could try to scrap for this challenge.

What a great idea on using the State Fair! We have the State Fair here, unfortunately when we think state Fair though it is in connection with the stage collapse.

Love how you spread the photos across the two pages. Beautiful layout!
