I have a sweet photo of my baby boy on the 4th of July with a big slice of watermelon that I want to scrap. I am looking for some cute navy blue papers that don't scream Fourth of July.

I prefer double sided pp but I'd be happy to have any recommendations for pp that is mostly navy blue. Other colors/elements in the photo are light blue, red, green (grass) and a wood fence and basket.

I did look at the July 4th stuff in the SuperStore here but most of it is too holiday-ish for my tastes. Of those, I liked the Scenic Route "Liberty" line the best.

Any other ideas?

Here's just a few. If you look under color in the superstore (I used "blue" and then scrolled through), you can find a lot more.

Yes, thank you. I did that search first, before I posted here. Not much came up that excited me.

I figure that there likely are cute papers with Navy Blue in them either on the reverse side or maybe navy mixed into a pattern. But that papers like that might not come up in a search for "blue."

I thought maybe someone who had recently done boy pages or July 4th pages might have a recommendation for cute pp with navy blue in it.

Anyone else have suggestions?

I used the Scenic Route Liberty collection on this lo......if I had used navy for the bg cardstock vs. the red it would've made the navy stand out more.

Paper Pizazz makes a real nice collection called "Coordinating Navy," which includes not only patterned papers but also some small frames. The papers are, however, single sided and only 8 1/2 X 11. They are all in the same shade of navy so they mix and match very well.

How about just using Denim paper. I have used it with metal brads to look like jeans pockets and with red bandana paper for a country look.

I really like the basic grey boxer collection for dark blue pages.

Do you mean the Traveler line???

Patti, that layout you posted with the SR papers is just adorable. Thanks for linking that here.

Another vote for Boxer. I've used it for quite a few of my ds's lo's.

The navy blue star paper in Scenic Route Liberty is nice.

Jenni Bowlin also has a line of navy blue.
