Who's Ready for Cinco De Mayo?

Hello, Hello, Hello!
Welcome to my post for the Cuttin' and Stampin' Design Team today.  I am so glad you stopped by.
Coming up in just a couple of weeks is Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) and we were asked to create projects to celebrate this holiday.  Well, as you can probably see by my blog design, I am a big fan of margaritas and Cinco De Mayo is the perfect reason to enjoy them!
There is a  local family run Mexican restaurant that I frequent and have had the opportunity to get to the know owners/staff.  Today I created a poster that they can hang up to advertise the specials they will be offering on Cinco De Mayo.
Let me show you my project and I'll give you more details!
The name of my local restaurant is LaPinita, so when I found a cut file for this cute Pinata  I knew that was the perfect image to use on the sign! 
This restaurant is decorated in very bright, cheerful colors and I wanted to create the sign so that it would blend right in with their style.  
Sorry for this being rotated, but in my photo editing it was facing the correct way, but I could not make adjustments here in blogger!

I added a "googly eye" to the Pinita's face and attached the pinata to the base of the sign with foam squares to give it dimension.
And another rotated photo...UGGGGHHH!  Blogger doesn't play fair sometimes!


I loved the arched Cinco De Mayo topper I found in the Silhouette store!  I welded letters together to form the word, "specials".  

There is my finished sign! It will be fun seeing it hanging in the restaurant prior to Cinco De Mayo!
Cheers!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will enter into the Cinco de Mayo challenge with us!
We love to see your creations!
