Bahaha! Today's layout is one using my June Counterfeit Kit & a prompt from their blog to use a humorous quote as your title. I just knew when I saw the prompt that I had the perfect quote!

I also used a lovely sketch from Let's Get Sketchy.

My son was asked to be the ring bear (nope, not bearer, (himym)) for my cousin's wedding, and he was less than thrilled about it. The day of the rehearsal, it was naptime and later than his normal lunch time & he wasn't feeling it. I was trying anything to keep him in good spirits. We were in a beautiful garden, so I pointed to a plant and told him those were "fartberries" and to make sure he didn't eat them because they would make him... well... you know. He thought this was hilarious, of course. He did awful at the rehearsal (he came through at the wedding tho! Praise Jesus!), but made sure to tell everyone at the luncheon following all about the fartberries!

There's the little stinker. I couldn't get enough of that gorgeous patinaed brick wall....

Here's the sketch I used. I adapted it a bit since I didn't want to cut my photo. I just used the other half of the photo as the intended journaling card...

Some details and the hidden journaling tag - you know, because fartberries has some explanation necessary:

Papers - Crate Paper
Berry die and fartberries title - Cricut
Flowers - Crate Paper
Tag - Michael's sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist and distressed with all my memories ink
alphas - Studio Calico

Thanks for looking!
