ITS SO UNFAIR ....

There's nothing like a good old moan is there - clears the decks wonderfully so you can stop complaining and get on with whatever you should be doing.  In my case I'd seen an advert in a magazine which had prompted cries of "how could they?" and "its so unfair".  Well it is - very shortly after buying a boring beige car (and that was the best of a bad job believe you me) they brought out a purple model!!  Can you believe it?  Just thoughtless if you ask me.

So you won't be surprised to learn that I was sufficiently moved to record this gross miscarriage of justice in my journal ...
I don't have to explain why I chose the purple obviously, and yellow just sort of goes with it right?  As usual the background is done with the ever so versatile Caran d'Ache crayons, and I left that bald spot near the bottom because I'd already cut out a picture of the offending purple car to stick there.

Then I regret to say that I got so involved in indulging my inner child for a while, that I completely forgot to take my usual stage by stage pictures, so this is the final result.  The numbers and speckly bits are rubber stamps, and the rest is my usual doodly activities.
Quite a simple page for me, but I like to think I've made my point and that there's no more to be said.  After all, there's no point in going on about it is there?  It only makes my nearest and dearest say things like "give it a rest".  However, I do feel that the very least the manufacturers can do is apologise profusely and deliver a purple one to our drive without delay, or I shall be stuck with the beige one for another 2 1/2 years - not a pleasing prospect.

Oh that's a pity, still when you are in the car you don't see the outside o you can pretend its purple. Great page xx

I couldn't agree with you more Rosie, and if I were the dealer, 8'd swap it for you without any hesitation!! lovely pages and the refract place to indulge you inner child!!

Brilliantly expressed and you must have been gutted. Could you art journal on your new car, even just a bit? There must be a market for individual-looking cars too, if you need a business idea! Hoping your inner child had a great stomp. :)

You made me chuckle but I can sympathise. You don't actually see that many purple cars, do you? Wonder why that is.

Oooh, I can see why you're annoyed; that IS gorgeous (sorry, I shouldn't rub it in ;-)
I think you should doodle all over the beige with your purple promarkers. DH won't mind...
