Challenges, Challenges, Challenges

Love me some scrapbooking challenges. I found an awesome blog called ScrapFIT that offers some very interesting challenges to get your creativity on and they have wonderful give-aways too! 

Once a month ScrapFIT has 1 main challenge and then during the same month they post 2 more mini challenges. So if you are looking for some fabulous scrapbooking challenges you most check out ScrapFIT. This month challenge is:
“Exercise Machines”
For this challenge you must use a “machine”. 
What machines you might ask? 
Punches, Cuttlebug, Sizzix, Slice, Cricut—any or all will do.

Did she say MACHINE????!!! Well, I'm happy to say that my all time favorite scrapbooking medium is my Silhouette Die Cutting Machine. I use it on most of my layouts! So here is my layout I'm submitting:
I used my Silhouette to cut out the Yellow paper border.

Ranger Wives: These Photo was taken back in 1992 when my husband Greg, was an Army Ranger Instructor at Camp Rudder located at Eglin AFB, Florida. Every year the Ranger hosted a Ranger's Wives Swap walk. They would take us out in the swamp and show us how to do their jobs. Of course we wives like to ham it up by dressing to look just like our men! We even imitated them with the “SNUFF look” in our mouths. The Rangers took us out in zodiacs, taught us about the wildlife, had us repelling, shoot their weapons, and even eat their nasty MRE's, it was so much fun, except eating the food! Yuck! I loved dressing up in Greg's Uniform. All my friends told me that I was the only one 
that could make a Ranger's fatigues look feminine! That was my greatest contribution!

I made these flowers and leaves using a new technique 
I've been trying out. I hope to make a video showing how I made them in a few days.

Love these Green Corrugated Letters from Jellibean soup. They add so much dimension! Also love the cute frilly pink gingham trim. All these products came in my June Tallyscrapper kit.
