Weekly Challenge - "My Town"

Now that the auction has come and gone it is time for another weekly challenge here at Inspiration Avenue. The theme for this week is "My Town".
The members and participants from IA are a group of people from all over the globe. I thought it would be nice to learn a little something about the places we all call home.
Where do you come from? Do you live in a big thriving metropolis or do you come from a small rural town? What is unique or special about your town?

Maybe it is the county seat with the best county fair....

Or maybe it is a famous tourist destination.....

So....for this weeks challenge take a picture, make a postcard or atc, collage a piece of art, use whatever art form you desire. The sky is the limit. There are no rules just be creative. Come back next Sunday March 21, before noon with your submission. Leave a link to your blog in the comments section so we can find you. This will automatically enter you in the monthly giveaway. This month the prize is from our lovely team member Angie from Artangel.
Have fun and see you next week!

I am very proud of my base for world domination, better than any dull underground lair and it has craft shops!
