I think it would be much simpler to buy a "Genie Garage Door Opener Photocell Safety Sensors" on ebay for about $25.

I have sensors i just need a circuit to run them

Have you established that your sensors work at the distance (10 - 12') without optics? If you got a circuit how would you know if would it work with your sensors? There are lots of information on IR remote control devices, think TV.
IMHO if you cant design such a simple circuit, how are you going to troubleshoot it?
