Viva Cinco de Mayo, Feliz Cumpleaños y Feliz Navidad

Viva Cinco de Mayo, Feliz Cumpleaños y Feliz Navidad
So do I have you wondering what this weeks challenge is over at lasting memories?
I can give you a hint that all my Spanish references are related by color.
This week we are asking you to crate a layout using Red, White and Green.
I like winter and the fresh crisp air after a snow storm
 the peace and stillness that follows said storm.
I am however not a Christmassy person.
  I don't go all out decorating, making card or even buying gifts.  
Also I've scrapped all of my Christmas' past
so this challenge is going to be just that a challenge to see what I can create without doing a Christmas layout.
Here's what I came up with just using Red, White and Green
My daughter Jessica is a May baby, so for her 3rd birthday we did a Cinco de Mayo party.
Soft tacos, piñatas and cake.
(Didn't think the kids would eat Flan and I'm not sure how to do fried ice cream)

Just because it's not a Christmas layout didn't mean I'd skip using some embellishments from a few holiday packs siting in my stash.  The Epoxy frame/tag is from one and the star brads are from another, both of which I picked up post Christmas clearance years ago.

Then I mixed in some stars and rhinestones to carry the color scheme and there you have it a layout using Red, White and Green and not Christmas.
 I hope you'll share your Red, White and Green with us.  Christmas or not


  1. Awesome Haven! Great stash busting LO. I love the frames!

  3. Very nice! Love the fact that you didn't do Christmas!

  4. Awesome layout Haven. Love the idea using christmas colour for non christmas page.
