If you want one better, just use RetroPie/EmulationStation. It does GB, GBC, SNES, NES, PSX, and a lot of other old consoles. And it can be run with only a joystick/joypad without use of a keyboard/mouse once it is properly setup the first time. If you want directions for essentially what you are wanting to do, check this out:
He does it primarily for SNES, but it is all the same to get the GB side working. If you want purely GB, then you can disable all the other emulators really easily and then emulationStation will still serve as the game select screen.
