My cousin Roxanne got a powder blue Ford Mustang in the early 1970's. I remember the first time I saw it and I knew that was the car I wanted.
Several years later my dream came true. They no longer had a light blue or any really fun colors. I ordered black by default since I couldn't decide on anything else.
I drove that car for 13 years and 187,500 miles. It was wonderful.
Eventually though it wasn't large enough to accomodate my window treatment business. A year after starting the business and a year of borrowing just about everyone's vehicles to haul things to customer's homes, I broke down and ordered my first van. I like the space of a van but I certainly miss the Mustang. I sold it to a man who had always wanted one like mine - the LX model with the larger engine.
All this was many years ago but the events never got scrapped until now. I actually have the photos my dad took after I received the car for college graduation. It came in a little early so I actually had it on my birthday. Mother put the pink bow on top.
I got to use one of these little wood veneer cards from Prima for the page. Also I had fun playing with mist and Perfect Pearls on the background.
In today's video, I start by showing the completed page. Of course if you are getting to the video via the blog, you have seen the completed page but I wondered if you like seeing the project before seeing the process. It came up on a discussion board so I thought I'd try setting up the video that way.
Watch at YouTube:
And here is the sketch for the page:
