‘neath the Red, White and Blue”
Have you ever wondered why America salutes the hues of red, white and blue?

And this patriotic palette has clearly stood the test of time!

And with the U.S. Memorial Day observance just around the corner (and for many, the unofficial start of summer!), it’s the perfect time to tap into blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu’s camp scrapbook layout!
