Barton House

Hi you all and welcome to my 2nd post of the day. While I was sorting photos that I had gotten developed over the last 2 weeks, I come across these and wanted to get them scraped since I just did the Jeff Dunham one and that was the same fair. I did some research on the Barton House for my journaling, by what I read the Barton House was the origin of the Bloomsburg Fair, Caleb Barton leased 12 Acres to the Bloomsburg Fair and those grounds are incorporated into today's fairgrounds.
 I used a sketch over at Sketch N Scrap sketch #60 for the layout:

When we go to the fair we love to see the exhibits and somehow we have passed this one by, but not this time:
 I was able to add 8 photos to the layout the sketch made a nice backdrop to it making it look like pages out of an old scrapbook. The colors came by the way of an inspirational challenge on a Yahoo group I'm in.
 The fashions back then were absolutely gorgeous, I included a word sticker in the place of the title and the large Rhinestones in place of the stars. All the papers are from my current counterfeit kit
 The flower cameo was a nice touch and so glad to have it in my current counterfeit kit. I can't imagine washing clothes in that washer :) My husband still hangs herbs that way to dry so some methods do hang around for quite some time
  The computer generated jouranling I got off the interenet, lots of good information about the house and the owner here is just a bit:
The Barton House was the original house on the property, through research on the internet I came to find out that the owner, leased 12 Acres to the fair and now those are incorporated into today's fairgrounds. The farm house built by the owner is the last remaining farm house to sit on any state fairgrounds. This story reminds me of my own family and my Dad's Mother side of the family donated or sold (not totally sure about that part of the story) grounds to the now Clinton County fair. It was nice to tour the place, the fashion and the way things were done back then, we have really been blessed with the modern technologies we have today :)
Have a fantastic day! I'm off to do some more scrappin while I can, August gets awful busy, so I want to take as much time in July as I can to get what I want done :)
