The Ohio State Fair Butter Cow Layout

Today I am sharing another layout featuring pictures from the Ohio State Fair - 2008. For several years we were able to enjoy opening day of the fair. Hubby was a crops judge, so he would spend a couple of hours working and then the rest of the day we enjoyed the sights, sounds and smells of the fair. One thing we always had to see was the Butter Cow. Yeah, until I moved to Columbus I didn't "get it" either. LOL
Don't forget you can click on the photos to see them larger.

 On this layout I used some "antique" designer paper.  In other words- stuff I have had forever. :-)

 If you click on this photo  you can learn more about the Butter Cow. 2008 was the year of "Mount Buckeye." Did you know that Ohio was home to 8 of our Nation's Presidents? 
I will admit that while doing a little research on the Butter Cow I came up with way more information than I had expected. Thank you Google!! :-)

I used the Country Life ("Cow Country") the Gypsy Font ("Butter,") and Animal Kingdom (cows) Cricut cartridges. I used the Upper Crust border punch on the strip of green designer paper. The buttons are from Fancy Pants Designs, with a tiny bit of Baker's Twine tied in one. I added a few shaped brads and finished off the strip by using the Tiny Attacher on both sides.
 Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~
