July Red, White & Blue Challenge by Karen

Design team member, Karen submitted this layout for the July Red, White and Blue challenge.  She said:

Wij Houden van Oranje
While red, white and blue may be the colours of the Netherlands ( where I live) the colour they wear to show their patriotism is orange
Its the colour of the sports teams, everyone wears orange on Queen's day and apparently it used to be the colour on the flag instead of red but the orange faded so badly that they changed to to red
these photos are from the world cup final last year. It was great to be living in the Netherlands when they reached the final of the world cup- the boys went to watch it on the big screen in town to enjoy the atmosphere and make their own noise (unfortunately Holland didn't win).

On one photo if you look carefully you can see a man dressed on the Dutch flag- it even has the words to the national anthem printed on it (and that's another odd thing- the national anthem I mean).

Now it's your turn to take the July Red, White & Blue Challenge. See all the details HERE!
