Gimme a big smile layout

I have a fun and easy boy layout for you today for the Exploring Cricut daily project-using the Phrases cartridge for the title!  The gears  on the layout are cut from the CM This and That cartridge (you can also find gears on some other cartridges if you don't have that one).

It was all inspired by the cool print paper from the Echo Park A Boy's Life collection.   I added some buttons, brads, and stickers from the paper collection to finish it off.  I have a whole bunch of random silly 3x5 photos of my boys taken with my iPhone to go here, so the title is just perfect!  The gear paper is 4x6, so it will show too.  Sorry the colors didn't photograph too well for whatever reason (i.e. photographer errors, lol....).

CM This and That-gears
Paper-Echo Park A Boy's Life collection prints, CTMH solids
brown chalk ink
buttons and brads-Stampin' Up

FYI:  this title would work for so many layouts and you could change the gears to flowers to make it a girl layout very easily.

Keep checking out all our daily projects over at Exploring Cricut-they are sure to wow you and get you using your cricut!
