mexican fiesta

i have been super busy lately......working on so many fun projects...and not slowing down anytime soon..... so i decided to make a birthday shadow box for a friend of mine......

every year she celebrates her birthday at her fav mexican restuarant - which just so happens to be my fav too - Tampicos!!! yum yum.... so in the spirit and tradition of her birthday- i used my creativity and turned an ordinary take out menu into a spicy background.....i added flowers made also from remnants of the menu, as well as napkin rings bearing the resturants name for the flower petals.....to put my special touch, i added a fleur de lis drink stir that she actually gave me to use to scrapbook-since she knows i love using extraordinary pieces in my layouts...and i found it most suiting to use it in the gift i was preparing for her....i added a few (yes just a few) gawdy touches....and voilia!!!! there you have it....i had fun creating this shadow box......check please????? :) ha ha ha
