Product Shuffle : Mesh

Hello friends!

What a beautiful day today.  The sun is shining and I'm hiding in my basement scrapbooking summer pictures!  It's perfect!
I love to cook and spend a great chunk of my day in the kitchen.  This week's product shuffle came to me in the kitchen.  As I was preparing my ingredients for my chili, I cut the top of my onion bag and set it to the side while I started chopping them.
Later, when everything was simmering, I started cleaning up and found the mesh bag top of my onions that lay in a perfect circle on my counter.  That was the starting point of my layout.  How perfect was this Page Maps sketch to incorporate my mesh circle?

All I had to do now was find the perfect paper to use with the orange mesh.  I finaly chose some delicious Carta Bella and the Hello Again 6X6 paper pad.

To make the circle, I just placed a big glue dot in the center of where I wanted to place my mesh.  I then cut the metal tie from the onion bag and placed the center of the opening on the glue dot.  The rest of the circle simply stretched away and I added the picture and the embelishments on top.

Along with the Carta Bella, I also used Studio Calico paper, a Jillibean Soup vellum butterfly, Prima flowers, Basic Grey Buttons and stickers, CTMH cardstock and stickers and a Teresa Collins brad.
Here is the finished layout.  I love how the mesh gives it just a suttle little something to tie everything together.  Have you ever found scrappy inspiration in your kitchen?  Let us know and see you soon!
