LM 400 - Rub Ons

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is Stash Busting.  This week, our challenge is to use rub-ons.

I had to dig pretty deep into my stash to find some rub ons.  As a rule, I generally don't buy them because I don't really like them.  However, I came across beautiful letter rub ons.  I forgot that I bought them in the dollar bin at Target.

I decided to scrap a photo from a wedding that my husband and I went to this year.  My husband's co-worker had his reception in one of the Boathouse Row houses in Philly, so that was cool.  It was a Cinco de Mayo themed wedding complete with taco bar and LOTS of margaritas.

This layout was a great excuse to use a bunch of cactus die cuts and ephemera that I had lying around.  I have never visited the desert, so I don't know when else I would have the opportunity to use them!

I am entering this layout in the CSI: Color Stories Inspiration challenge for this month.  I just love these colors!
