Where In The World Is Huckleberry?


Recommended Posts

Where in the World is Huckleberry?

 

An idea for a fun game was born at breakfast on the last day of our St.

Louis Scrap Girls get-together. Somehow we got on the subject of Flat

Stanley and Sandi said we should do a Scrap Girls version of it. She had

purchased a cute little purple monkey at the St. Louis Zoo gift shop and we

thought he would be the perfect Scrap Girls ambassador and we named him

Huckleberry, because he is from Missouri (Twain country) and huckleberries

are kinda purple.

 

So, Huckleberry is beginning a journey, one we hope will be worldwide, and

we want you to be a part of it. To participate you have to agree to:

 

1) Receive Huckleberry

2) Take some photos with him in them showing something about where you live

or are visiting

3) Scrap a layout and post it in the Travel Gallery

4) Pass (ship) Huckleberry onto another Scrap Girl to continue his journey

5) To love, respect and protect Huckleberry while he is in your possession

 

If you want to participate, post to this thread and I will compile a list.

When it is your turn, I will contact you by PM for your mailing address. We

can't guarantee that we will go strictly in the order that you post to the

thread because there may be some person-to-person hand offs, but we will

endeavor to follow the order. If it's not convenient for you to accept

Huckleberry at the time you are contacted, you will not be dropped from the

list and will be offered another chance later. If you decide that you no longer are

interested in participating when you are contacted, that is ok too.

 

Sound like fun? We think so!

 

Sandi has started Huck on his journey and here is the first layout - Huckleberry in Hannibal

 

Here is the list so far. This is not including those that were there at St. Louis which includes Sandi, Theresa,Conda, Angie, Cheri, Amy, Laura, Danna and me. I'm not sure what the order among us will be.

Since his Travel Agent was no longer active, Huck was retired back to St Louis where he originated from. It would be fun to start another traveling friend - we sure had fun with Huck. So funny, I

Just a thought. Awhile back all the school kids were playing a game called flat Stanley. Basically a paper doll that could be mailed around I expensively. Maybe we could have a flat Huck?

I was wondering what happened to the little guy. Will he ever travel again? Maybe he'll join us on our world trip this year.

Count me in Pat. This sounds like lots of fun. My kitties would love to meet Huck and have their picture taken with him. That's if they would stand still for two seconds. Safe travels Huck and I'm looking forward to seeing you in The Bronx real soon.

 

I know of a couple of places that Huck would love to visit while he is here.

I can vouch for Huckleberry as a very easy guest and traveling companion. He is very well behaved and is always pleasant and smiling. Never any trouble at all. Its only been a little over 24 hours since we said goodbye and I miss him already. Hopefully we'll hear from him in the next day or two. it sounds as though he's going to be on the road a lot in the near future. I know you all will just love him to pieces.

ME! I want Huckleberry to visit me. What a wonderful idea!

Tee hee........Sarah, your name came up as someone who would be interested when we were discussing this and I said "she'll probably knit him a purple monkey friend"! LOL :) He will have fun at your place for sure!

LOL! What a great idea! He can come and visit me in PA anytime, and I will even take him along to Hawaii if we go back as we hope to do, as long as Sandi is sure he will behave on the flight. :superhero:

 

Well, I can't verify the air travel yet, but since he was last seen by me at the St. Louis airport, but I'll bet there will be some ScrapGirl out there who can verify that he is a delightful traveling companion. And I bet he would love Hawaii. Do they make flowered shirts that small? He does travel by car very well though he did get a little rambunctious on the trolley.

Well, I might not get a purple one knit before then, but I have an orange, blue and a lot of brown ones. Plus, a blonde and 2 redheaded monkeys here. My 5 yr old DS LOVES monkeys.
