 Peggy Ell's blue ribbon entry was "Mammy and Kinky Top," published by DeJournette in 1950.  The category was American Paper Doll after 1950.  Click on photo to get a better look.  Love those boxed sets from DeJournette!

The category was Artists Self-Published Book/Folio and Sandra Vanderpool was awarded a blue ribbon with her entry, "Irene Langhorne of Richmond:  The Gibson Girl."

OK, so it's not a blue ribbon winner :-).  But I was pleased to be awarded a red ribbon in the category Original Art, Professional, Done by Competitor.

Jane Rasor was awarded a blue ribbon in the category of Original Art, Non-Professional, done by Competitor.  Jane actually drew this set, "1960's Woman," when she was in high school.  And of course she still has it in her collection!

Second place was awarded to Patricia Courte Rooney for her entry, "Ellowyne Wilde, National Doll and Toy Collectors, 75th Anniversary."  The category was Original Art, Professional, Done by Competitor.  Love this one!

My second place entry in the Commercially Printed Card--Doll category

 Jan McKay won a blue ribbon in the Paper Toy Pre-1900 category. 

       
The category was Paper Toy after 1940 and the blue ribbon winner was Brenda Givens.  The entry was titled, "Lisette."  Take a closer look because it is also a foreign paper toy.

The category was Bridge Tallies, Boxed Set and the blue ribbon winner was Jayne Keller.  The name of this entry was, "Country Fair Bridge Set."

Karen Hunter entered this blue ribbon winner in the Die Cut Scrap category, entitled, "Framed Cock Robin."

 
One of my favorite entries in the competition was this "Shirley Temple Press Sheets for Covers and 8 Pages of Clothing."  The publisher was Saalfield and the year 1935.  Mary Young received a blue ribbon for this entry in the category, Celebrity Paper Dolls 1900 to 1940

This was a very interesting entry.  This is the original artwork for a paper doll book that was never published.  Marilyn Henry explains that the artist is unknown and the book was neither finished or ever published.  Marilyn received a blue ribbon for this unique entry.  I missed the information on this one but I assume that the category was Original Art, not done by owner after 1940.  But I might have the date wrong.

Patricia Courte Rooney received a blue ribbon for this entry, "Fifteenth Century Headwear."  The artist was Susan Sirkis and the category was Original Art not done by Owner. 

Jayne Keller won a blue ribbon for this entry, "Venus" by Dorothy Lange.  The category was Original Art not done by Owner

The category was Die Cut Scrap-Individual, the entry was called, "Two Bloomer Dolls," and the blue ribbon winner was Jan McKay. 

I'm always a sucker for a boxed set.  Just love them.  This boxed set belongs to Peggy Ell and is titled, "Edwina--Gibson Block Doll."  It was published by Selchow and Righter in 1911.  Peggy won a blue ribbon in the category of American Paper Doll 1900-1940

Elaine Price entered this German paper doll in the category,  Foreign Paper Dolls After 1940.  It is called, "Lenchen Oufdem Masked Ball," and it was published circa 1900.  Elaine won a blue ribbon.

This paper doll is called, "Elegant Costumes of the 2nd Empire."  It is from Mon Journal, Paris, November 1, 1902.  Diana Lax won a blue ribbon for this entry in the category of Non-Celebrity Newspaper or Magazine.

Rebecca Walker Chapman entered this original artwork by Charlotte Whatley for Charlotte's book, Native American Costumes.  Still not sure about the category on this one.  It would seem to be Original Art Not Done by Owner.  But it wasn't on the same table with those entries.  Waiting for more information and then I can edit this post.  

This Altered Book was created by Diane (Dee) Radcliffe.  It is titled, "Alice in Halloweenland."  There was much oohing and aahing over this book and Dee was awarded a blue ribbon.  The Category was Altered Books.

This was Sandra Vanderpool's enty in the Altered Books category.  It is titled, "The Real Alice."  Sandra won a blue ribbon for her fabulous entry.
