I was born and raised in southeast Kansas, and there really is NO PLACE LIKE HOME!
I you're going though, you'll want to be sure to go to 'the exact middle of the United States,' THE WORLD'S LARGEST BALL OF TWINE, and of COURSE, Dorthy's house (located in Liberal.
This Layout features my Wizard Of Oz collection, with special attention given to a TON of symbolism....
I created the YELLOW BRICK ROAD base page with a glue pen and gold embossing powder, the photo mat is in the shape of the state, of course, the RAINBOW (though we actually see more of those here in New Mexico), A hand sewn tornado-or TWISTER, blue and white gingham paper to resemble Dorthy's dress, and the letters are stickled to sparkle like ruby slippers!
I cherish the snow globe pictured here. It plays 'Somewehere Over the Rainbow' and clicks the slippers together! It was my going away gift when my best friend Chrissy threw my surprise party!
This photo is of my sweet daughter, at home on our family farm. The John Deere tractor is my grandpas.
It really is a state of agriculture, harvesting mostly wheat and milo.
