Default July Color Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to the July color challenge!
Thank you all for the wonderful layouts and gorgeous minis last month.

July, being the middle of the summer at most parts of the world, always reminds me of the sea and the beach.
Growing up in the heart of Europe we tried to spend some time at one of the beautiful beaches every summer thanks to my parents.

I choose colors as I remember the different shades of the sea and I hope it will inspire many of you

Here is the palette for July:


and here is my starter kit for the month:


Link expired

Create a layout with the palette posted here or using my starter kit and post it in the Gallery until July 31st, or create a mini kit and share it with us, post the preview in the Gallery. If you have a blog where you post your layout or mini kit for the challenge, leave a link here and I'll be happy to visit and leave you some love
Have fun!

I'm getting ready to post my mini-kit and I just realized that my BGs' file sizes must be way bigger than average. I never paid attention until now, but I see that I can only put about 4 BGs in a zip file if I want to keep the zip file below 45 MB. At what quality do ppl usually save their .jpg BGs?

Here's mine - thanks for the lovely color choices!

Preview: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...hp?photo=60843

Update: I just learned that Windows users have trouble with files having asterisks in the file name, so I renamed all my files to have no asterisks, rezipped them and re-uploaded to 4shared. This is the only site at which I use an asterisk in my designer name and the only site at which problems have been reported, so I hope the files will unzip OK now.
I posted new 4shared links in the gallery.

Old edit:
A couple of ppl have had trouble d/l'ing the files, so I rearranged the file contents to make the file sizes smaller, recompressed them and uploaded them to MediaFire. I spot checked the 4shared zip files and am able to decompress all of them with four different Mac decompression utilities and I spot checked one of the MediaFire downloads, which downloads and unzips fine. One of my utilities, Zipeg, is donationware available for both Mac and Windows, so it might be worth trying that program. The MediaFire links are:
