Cricut at the Fair.

Hi everyone, it has been super busy around here this week.  Our County fair has been going on and my daughter shows her dog in Dog Club.  We showed last Friday, Saturday, she rode on the Dog club float on Sunday, she showed Wednesday and then had 2 classes yesterday.  One of the classes was Dog Costume Class.  The theme this year was book characters, she chose Charlotte's Web.  She was responsible for making her costume, and with a little of mommy's help, this is what we came up with.

She is Wilbur and Gavin the dog is Charlotte.  We pulled out the Expression and using Old West, Happy Halloween, and A Country Life, she cut the boards, feed sack, ribbon, spider's web, the words SOME PIG, and the vegetables for the feed trough hanging on the back of the wagon. 

To get the web that big, it had to be cut at 28" wide and manipulated using the Gypsy.  The boards were cut at 24" long and we did 3 full mat's worth.

There were some very cute costumes in class, including,

Lucy and the Lion from Narnia
The Daschund was Lucy, it was too too cute.

There were also 2 sets of Thing one and Thing two from the Cat in the Hat, and a Princess and the Frog.

There was about 10 entries in the whole class.  My Daughter took first.  Once again, thanks Cricut for coming to the rescue.  You can't beat if for costume classes.

Thanks for stopping by today.

What cute pictures, and adorable costumes!!! I particular like the costume with the lion's mane.

I sure wish I would have tried to get Buster some training to enter contests -- well, he's too darned spoiled now!!! LOL!
