I think that it’s time for introductions. I’m Carla Cotton, an artist, quilter, wife, mother, grandmother, Paparazzi consultant and pageant queen. I am Ms. Classic Texas American Coronet. I live way out in the Texas countryside with my husband. I enjoy painting, cooking, gardening, quilting, knitting, and making beautiful things. I entered my first pageant when I was in my mid-forties. I have won lots of art awards and over 20 pageant titles. When I did my last pageant a few years ago, I had told myself that it was to be my last pageant. But the American Coronet Pageant was the one that I’d never entered. I had to do it! I’m so glad I did. I’ve enjoyed every minute of being Ms. Classic Texas state queen.
