Brothers ~ Practical Scrappers ~ Mesh Bag Challenge ~ CHOOSEN AS A TOP 3 OVER AT THE SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTERS CHALLENGE!!!

Hi everyone!!!  Happy weekend!  Here is a layout I created for the Practical Scrappers May Frugal Finds, which is to use one of those plastic mesh grocery bags....   Well, if you haven't guessed, the circle around the photo is my mesh bag.. I used black twine and wrapped it around most of it to keep it together so I could make the circle and left abound 2 inches of each end unwrapped and then just tied it once...  The Prima Flowers are covering the metal staple.

I also used this months sketch from Get Creative...


Here are a few close ups....
