Hold on a second.............


If you haven't heard....The Trinket Track store will
be having an extended break. At this stage I don't know how long
that break will be. It could be quite a while.
It is a very hard decision to make but I just can't dedicate full time
work to it anymore...and I can't exactly ask you lovelies
to only buy embellies every now and then so I can keep up ;-)
The main reason I started The Trinket Track was because I had
a desire to be involved in the craft industry other than being on DTs, creative
challenges and being published and what a wonderful experience that was!
I met so many people and had so many wonderful opportunities - there
was also the thrill of seeing my pretty embellies on the pages of
magazines - and even the cover thank you!
You are all amazing, so I want to give something back!
Right here on this blog!
I mean, I can't let this awesome blog design go to waste can I?!?!?!?
There is something coming...something BIG!
Please keep reading, because we're not done yet!

Carnival colours!

Hi everyone!
I have this really quick and easy layout to share with you all.

I know I am always glad to see the end of Summer....but living
in QLD, even a Winter's day can be I don't miss it for long!
This particular day was the hottest day of Summer, with temperatures
reaching 40 degrees Celsius. We decided to spend it at the water park with
half of Brisbane lol!
My background is so basic. I used a piece of Kaisercraft base coat
patterned paper - best paper ever!
I added a acrylic heart button and topped it with some rainbow string.
I then scattered some Starfetti across the page.
I adhered them with tacky glue and some tweezers.
I didn't like them all lying down flat so I overlapped them.
I used some of the rainbow string to frame my photo.

Quick and easy!
Adding bright colours to a layout can
add lots of interest to simple layouts!
