Created using the October 2011 Mega Farmer's Market By the Studio Team

Changes made:
Used Layer Style>Stroke to turn the paper turnip in to a sticker like some of the other veggie elements.
Cropped the leather bow to shorten one end.
Drop shadows, scaling, and rotating used judiciously.

Font used is Old Newspaper Types

Photo is from Flickr, found by searching "free to use vintage farm lady"

I grew up in south central Ohio, in the middle of a corn field. Literally. Corn everywhere! The farmers in the area grew lots of corn, beets, radishes, and lettuce so I focused on those veggies. The rural area where I grew up was farmed by the same families for over a century. Not much happened in those parts, so I always made up stories in my mind about things that took place "in the old days" before I was born. That's where this little story about Betty Sue and "the radish incident" came from.

Text reads:
Betty Sue Greenfield
crowned
Harvest Queen
1912
No one expected the recent
transplant to Ross county to
even place in this year’s
contest. Her threat to reveal
the recent “radish incident”
to the town council ensured
her crown, and revealed her
penchant for scandal. That
innocent smile may have
Farmer Brown fooled, but the
rest of us know her story!

Yes, the font came from dafont.com...er...I think. Either there or Font River. My memory is horrible when I get into a font downloading frenzy!

And thanks, Ladies!

Love, LOVE it!! More beautiful papers to show off and great clusters of the elements. I grew up in Marysville, OH (it was really small and sleepy back then). Yep, not much happenin' when I grew either. Really do need that imagination.

One of my best girlfriends is from the same area in Ohio, and she's a genealogist as well. She spent two hours pouring through local census records and old newspaper archives trying to find Betty Sue and the 'radish incident'! I'm still teasing her about it!
