Out With the Old, In With the New Day 2

Happy 4th of July!  May your day be filled with good food, fun times and safe firework displays to watch.  We are under fire restrictions so if it has a fuse it's outlawed.  'Course all fireworks are always outlawed here - yep even sparklers.  We can do worms though.  But really, how patriotic is that?  A black, smoking thing - not so much.

Also, welcome to day #2 of this month's challenges - Out with the Old, In with the New.  Your challenge today, find a past kit with the following color scheme.  No kits?  Pull some of your older papers.
Seriously, you aren't surprised are you?  I know there are several past kits with this color scheme, so let's think outside the box.  Does it mean you're locked in something patriotic?  Heck no.  I see Christmas pages with this scheme - the blue twinkle of lights and ornaments, red is the color of the season and white of the snow (if you're lucky to have it).

Snow - oh so cold and crisp.  So far, far away from the current 95 degrees.  Sorry, I digress.

This color scheme is also naturally good for sports, baseball in particular. Use these colors for water skiing, sprinkler running, boating, swimming.  It's also great for highlighting those summer pie recipes, county and state fairs and local carnivals.  How will you use it?

Need a sketch?
Your layout for this is due Saturday evening July 9th for a shot and some Summer Treat Goodness.

I want to see your layouts!  So come on and play.

Happy 4th!

Here's my version on the sketch and added my link to "Fun Day at the Fair!"

Thanks for the list of kits including the color scheme, Lori! I'd been saving that kit for circus photos and then we didn't get to go in the Spring so used them for my County Fair photos.
