Blog Neglect and Camp Scrap Update Motivation

I've posted these to facebook or to my classes or the Fiskateer website but not to here until now. I've been having a blast at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Yes, I love BPS and thus the layout inspired by Stacy Julian's burger color scheme challenge at Camp Scrap that features my feelings about BPS and photos of Stacy, too.
The other layouts were from the Camp Scrap class and also Nic Howard's class. I like more textural and colorful LO's right now. It's fun exploring new things.
Most of the photos are ones I took for the Picture Summer class at BPS. I enjoy the work of my classmates. In general, feel a little out of my league there; but, I am learning a lot . That's the important thing. Yes, sunflowers are an appealing part of summer for me! Went to the State fair yesterday. Even though it was not over 100 three hours, even with rest and the obligatory lemonade and corn dog break, it was tiring. Still, love the fair! It was a somewhat posed photo as that lemonade is nearly empty. (Had to wait for Cal to finish his corndog!) While not over 100, it was hot enough to warrant a "large" lemonade!
Enjoyed talking to the artists at the fair. Loved the bicycle exhibit. Think my stepson Bob and his family would LOVE that one!
Of course, while I liked it all, the historical artsy bits were MY faves!
Cal, naturally, loved the farm and the veggies!
Now, I feel better bringing the blog up-to-date. Thanks for taking a look.

Love the sunflowers and historical pics! Our State Fair is in a few weeks. For us, it's all about whatever they've decided to deep fry!

I loved looking at your layouts (even caught a few on the Camp Scrap gallery...so hard to keep up with the gallery over there!) Your work is great... and I absolutely love your sunflowers (I took a Dahlia picture for my 'Summer Photos-garden' prompt for the workshop from BPS) I haven't been to the CA State Fair in years...should go this year since the summer has been so mild in Sacramento!
