Cinco de Mayo Freebie!

Cinco de Mayo photo DCD_CincoDeMayo_TS.png

On May 5, 1862, 4,000 Mexican troops using machetes, cattle and one really good Calvary unit held off a combined French-Mex force of 8,000 just outside of Mexico City. The smashing of the French troops stopped them from supplying the American Rebel forces and led to the end of the American Civil war 18 months later at Gettysburg.

It's a historical event, not just for Mexicans, but for Americans as well. And - you know me - any excuse for party is a good one!

With that in mind I've put together a festive, fun, little taggers size kit for you all to play with. It's filled with Southwestern, and Mexican elements and is a great way to have a little fun while tipping our hats to this bit of history.

Yes, I slept through American History in the 9th grade. But no, all history doesn't have to be that boring.

Included in the kit are 24 papers and 101 elements. You are getting 12 frames, 8 bows, 8 flowers, 6 stickers, 4 charms, 4 doodles, 4 dragonflies, 4 flairs, 4 knotted ribbons, 4 ribbons, 4 ribbon wraps, 4 roses, 4 strings, 4 string wraps, 4 tags, 3 cute flowers, 3 fireworks, 2 birdilicious, 2 chili peppers, 2 guitars, 2 maracas, 2 sombrero, 1 cactus, 1 cerveza, 1 chihuahua, 1 Cinco de May mari, 1 margarita, 1 salsa lady, and 1 sun.

300 DPI. Personal use only.
