My Brownie experience
Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has it's latest sketch challenge up and it is all about Brownies and guides.
February 22nd is Baden Powell Day – Baden Powell was the founder of Boy Scouts, and his sister Agnes was the founder of Girl Guides. Scrap a memory of you in Scouting or Girl Guides (brownies, Sparks, Guides, etc.) or a memory of a group you belonged to when you were a child or teen. You may include a momento or journal a memory of what belonging meant to you.
I lasted approximately 2hours in brownies - I even held out longer at Gymnastics than that!
Growing up on a farm, going to school in a small town, the only place my friends in primary school met out of school hours was at Brownies. So my best friend got me along one day convinced I would love it..
I just didn't get it.
I couldn't understand why Mrs Cooper became Brown Owl and would only answer to that. She took it very seriously. I giggled at the sing alongs and was just a bit disruptive, nothing too big, I was still a pretty quiet kid.
I wasn't invited back.
and I didn't really ask to go back either.
Meaghan joined guides and lasted for 3 terms. It didn't help that the only girl she knew was fond of the sound of her own voice and was very impressed with how clever she was compared to every one else. Not Meaghan's type at all.
Come and play and playing along also gives you a chance to win prizes from our on going Valentines blog hop. Lots of little prizes to be won on individual blogs as well (including mine). Well worth visiting all the girls.
And i am also currently the guest Designer at Use it Tuesday's, the theme this challenge is birthdays - and they have a blog hop going as well. Go check it out here.
Ok, that's all for now. xxx
