So, lot of my family and friends and fellow bloggers have been asking me a lot of questions about my Prius and whether or not it's really safe and whether or not I will have to have a tiny piece of metal the size of a quarter installed to repair the accelerator issues (which I still find odd). I've also received a lot of questions about whether I will buy another Prius in the future. Let me just start off by saying... I LOVE the car! I drive around 30 miles per day and get right around 50 miles per gallon. So for me, the idea of saving a ton of money AND saving the environment means a lot. I love being able to fill up my tank, drive all week and spend less than $15.00. That's right folks, $15.00 TOTAL! I've been reassured by Toyota that because my car is a 2008, that they software glitches that the newer models have are non-existant in mine. To this date, I have not experienced any issues with the accellerator or the brakes. I did, however, take heed to the the floormat issue that was originally released and removed it, but other than that we are good to go!
Okay, so now for a LO. I'm really pleased with how this LO turned out.
I used my Tim Holtz Crackle Paint on some chipboard pieces to get the effect listed below. It took a good 3 hours for the paint to dry before the letters were ready to be added to my page.
Here is a shot of the journaling spot I used. It was a sticker on an October Afternoon kit that I got about a million years ago. On all of the black and white pieces I tinted them with the new Shimmerz Spritz color - barn door - I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out...
I also utilized a recent purchase of some really cute Jenni Bowlin Bingo Cards and Calendar Cards. In addition, I used some fun Archivers flowers along the ribbon border and added some buttons that I picked up from a kitchy antique store in my little town!
As a Prius owner, I am one of those granola types that loves to recycle and re-use whenever possible. That's why I love visiting antique shops and picking up little pieces here in there... That's where I picked up my Smith Corona too... next on the hunting list... some (really) old door keys!
Re-use, and Recycle when possible...Happy Thursday Everyone!
