Happiness Is....Chicago Burritos

We love Chicago food and eat plenty of it when we are visiting the Windy City.  One of Dave's favorites for burritos is El Famous Burritos.  So when we were in town last month this was one our stops for dinner.  Their football sized burritos are as good as they are large.  I opted for a smaller sized (though it was not small) version of the chili relleno burrito and it was quite possibly one of the best things I have eaten in a LONG time. (see the smile on my face??)

This 2 page layout is using the above sketch from Let's Scrap and by submitting it to them I am applying for a position on their design team.  So keep your fingers crossed for  me.  My current term on The Paper Variety design team is coming to a close in mid-December and I am looking for another team to join. If you are interested in also submitting an application to Let's Scrap you can check out the info HERE.

The right hand side of the page (see above) also followed the current recipe challenge on
Frosted Designs. I used:
1. The color yellow
2. Chipboard (the sombrero in the upper left corner and the design under my picture are all chipboard)
3.Stickers (my Thickers title, phrase Ole' and the red pepper)
4. Buttons (the centers of the flowers embellishing the journal box are Nikki Sivils burlap buttons)

I had a lot of fun yesterday watching college football and scrapping while it rained all day.  Today is looking to be rainy as well so I will be back later to share more hopefully after a day of NASCAR, football and playing with paper.
