Watching the 4th of July Parade Layout

July 4th photos aren't usually my favorite to scrapbook, not because they aren't fun pictures, but because I struggle with the red, white, and blue combo for some mysterious reason. This time, I pulled out some old DCWV papers that featured more muted tones of those colors, and it seemed a little easier to create my pages.

Here's the left side:
And the facing pocket page:
And both pages together:
July Word Puzzle & 10 Things stamp sets
The Summer Stack papers (DCWV)
White cardstock
Outdoor Denim, Cranberry & Bamboo ink
Outdoor Denim marker
White enamel stars
Color Kaleidoscope sticker book, puffy stickers & Thickers
Petticoats & Pinstrips ephemera (Echo Park)
Pattern: Let's Scrap 6-1-19 sketch (with the right side as a pocket page). The diamond shapes didn't work with my layout, so I used circles instead.
Challenges: Use Your Stuff #361 - Summer Fun (and what says summer fun like watching a July 4th parade for the first time?); The Paper Girls #177 Top Five (I chose "5 Things that make today great")
