July Red, White and Blue challenge by Christy

Design Team Member Christy submitted this layout for the July Red, White & Blue Challenge.  She said:

If you had come to me last month and asked me which papers from my stash would be used to scrap our Fourth of July memories, Floral prints would definitely not have been on the list. Yet here they are on this next page! I got the idea from the counterfeit kit club challenge. The idea is to scraplift a kit from a kit club using what you have in your stash. One of the kits I saw had a lot of blue and red  floral papers in them. Since flowers are not always easy to use on a page for boys, I felt this would be a great opportunity to use them. Oh...and would you believe there are travel themed items on the page too!?!? The journal spot and the tab sticker on the corner of the photo are from a travel collections.

page maps sketch
starburst paper- Cosmo Cricket
all other papers Sassafrass
sassafrass border
Prima flowers
foof a la buttons
7 gypsies tab sticker and paper clip
Journal spot unknown( Maybe K and Co.)
Making Memories rub on alphas
hand made denim flowers
Basic grey border stickers cut apart
So the next time you are feeling a little blue about not having the right themed papers in your stash, check out a kit club. It just might give you some ideas to help you rethink how to use products you already own.
