My Other Creations: Grater Memo Board

Today's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is, "Citrus with a Twist."  The first thing I saw in my mind's eye was my talented chef of a mother grating all sorts of lemons and limes to add zest to...whatever it is you add lemon and lime zest to.  And so I decided to pay homage to her by converting an old grater into a memo board. 

You've seen this girl before, I'm sure, as she's my favorite of Tim Holtz's Found Relatives to spruce up.   I set her against a backdrop of distinguished gentlemen to make her stand out and remind myself to be my best and truest self no matter who's looking on.  The label letters and flash card are also from Tim.  I covered up the grating slices with my image so as to not zest my fingers off when using this board!

The flowers are magnets so I can attach notes, quotes, photos or reminders to my memo board.  Here's how it looks with a note attached:

I thoroughly enjoyed making this project and taking my twist on citrus!  Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
