Scrap the Boys February Scrapbooking Layout "Text"

The February challenge at Scrap the Boys was "Out of their mouths". 
While my layout is not technically from DH mouth, you get the general idea.
My twins are not talking yet so I went with the other "Boy" in my life.

I've got a wonderful collection of text message from my DH over the years.
Including this one "Can't sleep, clowns will eat me" - from TV show The Simpsons

I knew exactly what I wanted for this layout - something very manly. The touch's of orange were a late addition to break up some of the brown. 
The hardest part of this layout was finding a picture of DH on his phone!
