Scrap the Boys - January Challenge 2014

Good evening!  Well... last night, after a big drive home from our holiday, I thought I would be a bit crazy and try and fit in a bit of scrapping time.  I was tired... but it feels like forever since I even sat down in my space to do a layout.  So while the boys were getting their Xbox 360 fix I had a go at Scrap the Boys January Challenge.  And what do your know... I got it finished!!! 
So I thought I'd quickly share it while the boys are settled down playing... you guessed it... the Xbox.
For this challenge the topic was "something new".  My first thought was of course the new Xbox, but I haven't got photos of that yet, so I thought I would get  page done that's been sitting around waiting for a challenge just like this!  A few years ago my hubby FINALLY upgraded his vehicle.  It so needed to be done, particularly since I still had my little two door Hyundai Excel... so we really did need a decent sized family car (holidays were just a nightmare)  Although, he still misses 'The Ol' Girl' lol
Here is my page:
Nothing too fancy schmancy here.  Some old Sassafrass paper, some gesso used with a Kaisercraft background stamp, and some Jillibean Soup stickers and finally, some pretty badges from Greatest View :-)
If you would like to take a look at the challenge yourself head here.  I hope you like my take on it.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxox
