put your best flair forward

To follow up with the picture accompanying yesterday's post...I have a confession. I was a brownie-drop-out. Yep, it's true. While I adored the uniform, I stunk at peddling cookies [my parents ended up buying my entire share] and preferred not to sing songs in unison. So, after a year in brownies, I called it quits and ended my career in girl-scouting.

As a result, I hardly earned a single badge...by far, the COOLEST part of being a brownie. But, luckily today, I can create my own.

I'm still working on this one:

Please feel free to accept any and all of these special badges as my treat. You can take a screen shot and use them on your own blogs and websites [in posts or on your sidebar]...all I ask is that you kindly link back here for credit. Cheers!

Thank you Annie and Steph! :)

Danielle said...

I quit too. Though I was in the Bluebirds. So I love these patches!

Jen said...

Love these!!! I quit too when we moved. Some activity had to go and for me it was the scouts. I might have to steal the "I see the glass half full" one for my website :)

Wendee said...

OMG. How precious are these?! Yes, I'm going to take up your offer.

What I want to know is how Edgar feels about these Bob people that you love... [smirk]

Liz Steel said...

I can't believe that all of these perfectly describe me too - except for the fact that i have got rid of my bob!!
BTW I finally got around to flicking through your symposium moleskine - what a treat! I LOVED seeing all those sketches again and being a part of your book. Also loving seeing the bear in other peoples sketchbooks (he does too - can't imagine how big his head is these days!)

If girl scout badges looked anything like this, I'd be tempted to join now just so I could wear a sash full of them!! I'm definitely going to put some on my blog- thank you!!

Claire said...

fun fact: I designed some patches for Y-guides in Charlotte. They had a machine that mass-stiched patches that looked just like my drawings - not girl scout patches, but just as much fun

aimee said...

these are the best doodled badges i've ever seen, suzanne! do you mind if i mention this in my next post?

suzanne cabrera said...

Wendee---surprisingly, he's comfortable with Bob's and my relationship :D

Claire---how do I get this job?!?!

Aimee---but of course, such an honor.

Suzanne-
Were these colored on cardboard? I'm trying to figure out the texture...or is that something you did in the editing?

Really cool badges! I especially love the right and left one, but I'm still working on that one myself. I'm what you might call, directionally challenged. ;)

Melissa---

The texture actually comes from a layer of 'texture' that I added in photoshop. Basically it was a close-up photo of burlap.

Eden said...

Will of course link back :D
