my favorite car

This month at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things the challenge is to choose any of their past themes to scrap. I chose my favorite car (Carmione like Hermione) because in my school scrapbook I had a page saved to scrapbook the story of when I bought it.

The paper scrap that says Earth Love is a strip I cut off of the bottom of another piece of patterned paper. I was so excited when I found a Prius acrylic stamp and now I got to use it! I also used my library date stamp for the dates. Here's my journaling which I got off of my Myspace blog. Remember Myspace?

6/5/06 Wonder of wonders, my Toyota Prius arrived today!!!

Ooh, it's so pretty and it's like a car from the future.

When I told my class that I was leaving right after school to get my new car they started clapping. It's nice to have my own little group of cheerleaders.

6/6/06 I took my class on a field trip today to the parking lot so they could see my new car! They thought it was very cool (because it is) and there was a general air of excitement.

After going out to my car this evening I noticed it has about 200 little fingerprints all over it now. Pretty cute!

Haha! Maybe your class cheered you up because they wanted to ride in your new car! Did you even let them in? Hehe... Btw, your fave car looks gorgeous. Where is it now?Do you own two cars now? That's awesome!

I also felt what you experienced four years ago, Captain Nick. :P Have you seen the Toyota Prius 2013? I read on a magazine that the starting price could be below $19,000. Isn’t that awesome?!

That's totally awesome! What magazine did you read that in?

With the Toyota Prius 2013, the Prius would definitely continue to be phenomenal - in the most literal sense, I mean. :P If I'm not mistaken, the Toyota Prius 2013 can hit 60 mph in less than 10 seconds.
