NEW BBQ dinner menu challenge

I combined the Get Out the BBQ Menu challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends with the
at 2 Broke Girls scrap March Word  challenge

Good morning and welcome to the first word challenge (aka The Last Bite) for 2 Broke Girls.

It's a nice easy one to begin with. Simply create a layout (traditional or digi), card or other project using the word NEW in your title.

This is the result:

For the full menu selection see the blog forum at :

Menu challenge as posted by Christa...

Spring is officially here . It always makes me think of getting outside, raking leaves, diffing out that BBQ and enjoying how everything is green-ing up!
In honour of these outdoorsy feelings (yes, I do have them occasionally) I thought we'd challenge you to a BBQ themed Menu challenge.

For those of you who don't know how they work, here's the 'skinny':

I will list several BBQ dinner items below. You must choose a minimum of 5 items from the list. Once you have made your choices, list them below in your own post.

On March 18th, I will add the Scrappy Items that correspond to each food item. Once you have the scrappy items that correspond to your BBQ menu list, you create a layout or altered item or card with those items.

My selections are highlighted and resulted in a nice mixture :

8. Potatoes with parsley: Use washi tape
13. Corn on the cob: Use three seperate sized photos
14. Grilled Asparagus with prosciutto: Use red
17. Bratwurst Sausage on a Ben: Use one manufacturuer for all your papers (except Card stock)
19. Hamburger sliders with Cheddar and Bacon: Use the negative of a shape (ie the cut part of a die cut or a font.)

I used a cricut cut from Nate's ABC's cartridge for the negative cut of a shape. (alpha in my case)
The One manufacturer I chose  is Simple Stories...combination of  3 collections.. 24/7, Life Documented and 100 Days of Summer.
Use Red..Simple Stories Alphas Stickers and arrow and  red mist on background.
Use Washi tape...I used 3 different colours and design of washi tape in 3 areas on the page.
And the 3 different size photos are 1- 4 x 6 , 1- 1 3/4 " circle and 1-2 1/4 " circle.

Hope you enjoy....I had fun doing this page.
