Scrapping with Red, White and Blue

July 4, 2012

Here in the US, we’re in the middle of summer. For me, the month of July is “the” summer month.  I have fond memories of family vacations, Fourth of July celebrations, baseball games, and time spent hanging out at the neighborhood pool and riding bikes to the creek. The red, white and blue color scheme epitomizes this time of year. It reflects the colors of the American flag and is strongly associated with our Independence Day.

This month’s reader challenge is to scrap a layout in a red, white and blue color scheme that isn’t documenting a Fourth of July event. Next week, we’ll be sharing inspiration from the Simple Scrapper Team.

In the meantime, a number of traditional and digital scrapbook designers have recently released red, white and blue collections. There’s quite a variety amongst the selections, including classic takes on the scheme as well as those that have a bit of a twist.
