At the Fair





Over on the Crafty Ribbons blog we are celebrating fetes. 
For my contribution I made a scrapbook page of the wonderful day out we had at Dorset Steam Fair a couple of years ago. It was the biggest fair I have ever been to and it turned out to be really hot Summer's day. I've used DCWV Nantucket papers, ric rac and striped ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, K&Co bunting, Scrabble letters and some foam glitter stars I found in my stash. I have wanted some of these Scrabble letters for ages and when I managed to buy some of Facebook I was delighted. I chose to but them without the segmented box as I had one I could use and it saved on postage. The only trouble was that meant I received an envelope full of letters which had to be sorted so I could put them in the box alphabetically making them easier to find. I have a lot of other alphabets which are loose in their boxes and it take ssuch a long time to find the ones you want, if indeed I have all the letters I need.
