U R A Barrel Of Laughs-Whimsical Wednesday Reveal

happy hump day everyone.. Wednesdays are such a nice break in the week, aren't they? and well, I like Wednesdays since we get to reveal out Whimsical Wednesday projects to you all... This time were asked to had " HUMOR!" to the layout by either using a funny photo or the words: Laugh, funny, etc.. or even combine the two..
I combined.. the photo is of my daughter Amber goofing around a portrait studio and it was taken about 5 yrs ago.. I thought the photo was so funny and wanted to make a layout with it and no time like the present, right?.. 

Here is my take on our Challenge:

You all should know by now, that I luv the " Old West!" cartridge and I think its very versatile even if being just country style cuts...

and for a few close ups of the layout:

The words "HA-HA" in the barrel...LOL
and I did some embossing on this layout.. I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder "Woodgrain!" on the barrel and the photomat..

and for supplies used:

Cricut Expression
Cricut Cartridges: 
Old West: Barrel, photomat, snake, hay, wagon wheels, font, hat, feed sack and rope
Heritage: scroll
Design Studio software

papers by: K & Co
Cardstock: black, white and cream
Edge Distress Tool
Tim Holtz Distress inks: rusty Hinge, Vintage photo and Black Soot
pop dots
