Dangerous Boy :-)

I have so many unfinished layouts .... this is one of them!  DH on his birthday last year, with a very appropriate pressie!
Started - and actually almost finished - at the ATDML retreat last month, but I needed to cut a title .... and do a little journalling ... and I didn't like the way the stamped gears looked on the punched circles.  The papers are from a Hot off the Press steampunk collection, mostly, with a cogs paper from Craft Creations and a scrap of cream/gold foiled paper which I think may be from them too.  I cut around the design in the corner of the background paper to slide the cogs strip behind it.
I robo-cut the title, the 'watch out' and 'dangerous' are cut using the 'Boys r gross' font .... I like a good font joke LOL.  Still wasn't happy with the stamped circles... but DH had laser cut me a whole selection of gears in different sizes from white card, so I inked some up and placed them over the circles - it has made all the difference!
A little bit of journalling along the top of the photo mat and it was finished at last.
