My new Car
Just before Christmas my car (which I had had for 14 years) gave up the ghost. Since it was going to cost more to fix that the car was worth we decided it was time to buy a new one. I have always dreamed of owning a pink Porsche or a yellow VW beetle, but with 6 kids both those options are a little impractical (not to mention expensive!).
I settled for the white Toyota Estima in my picture. It was the first car that I test drove, and despite seeing many more cars over the subsequent few days, I came back to it. It is in pristine condition, is a nice cool white colour and best of all as far as the kids are concerned it has a ladder running up to the roof :)
I used up some older OA papers and combined them with the newer 'Boarding Pass' collection. The challenge for 'Fabulous Fridays' over at 'Frosted Designs' is to incorporate ribbin or twine onto your page (easy right!) so I added some twine to my clustered elements and a little ribbon along the top. I have had the chippie arrow and the green shipping tag in my stash for years so it wa nice to finally use them up - I find that the current trend of clustering elements on the page (which I love) is great for using up those odds and ends that have been in your stash for years but you no longer know what to do with!.
