Chopped and High Hopes

I was working on a layout today that completed two separate challenges on the web. Challenge Masters is having a contest called "Chopped" for the next four weeks that is based on the Food Network show by the same name. The premise of the show is that the contestants, all chefs, are given a basket of food ingredients and they have a certain amount of time to complete a dish with those items. I had never heard of the show before, but did go on the web to catch a couple of episodes before the challenge for the scrappers started. I am totally hooked on the show now.

We were given a list of ingredients and a week to complete our challenge. Some of us will advance to the next week. Some of us will be eliminated. Our ingredients this week are; the color lime green, circles and paint. While we are allowed to use other "ingredients" to complete our layouts, these items must be the predominant eye catchers on the layout. To find out more about this challenge, click onto  Challenge Masters and follow the links to "Chopped".

I also decided to use this layout to complete a Scraplift challenge on Scrapping the Moments. The ladies working on that site do a dandy job and have some lovely sketches and scraplift ideas to enhance even the best "scrappers" layouts. New projects become available on the 1st and 15th of every month with some Friday night specials and  other impromptu challenges along the way. Check them out at the link above.

And without further adieu, here is my latest layout....

Until next time...
