A Simple Twist on Red, White and Blue

I loved the patriotic feel of the July kits. Who wouldn't! However, I decided to challenge myself to use the kits for a non patriotic layout. Though red, white and blue remind many people of the Fourth of July, simply adding in an unexpected color can change the feel of the layout. I chose to add pink and gold.

Making pink letters was a breeze. I simply painted the chipboard letters from the kit with some pink paint. I added some vintage pink buttons and chose one of the cards from the Historian kit. I cut the card down to fit my page. Most people don't expect pink on a boy's layout. I like how it brings an unexpected pop of color to the red, white and blue palette.
