Create Features Error

Hello. I am attempting to create a feature outlining a specified boundary. Within this layer (polygon) I would like to add 2 more layers depicting differing areas of fishing (this will be similar to a contour map with increasing values for each layer). This is my process of thought to complete this objective:
-create a new layer in ArcCatalog with specified projection
-add layer to ArcMap
-edit feature
-draw area with polygon or freehand tool
-save edits

After completing these steps I receive an error that states "the number of shapes does not match the number of table records". I am attempting to draw 3 polygons, 1 inside the other. I receive this error regardless if I draw 1 polygon or multiple. Any insight into the solution of this problem would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I am using ArcGIS 10
