Hi everyone!

Today's layout is focusing on Bo Bunny's gorgeous Trinkets!  These were such a beautiful addition to Bo Bunny's collections and are so fun to work with!  There are so many uses for them and you can see a few on the Bo Bunny blog.  I decided to do a layout using Vicki-B and have used four of the Vicki-B trinkets on it!

The journaling is hidden behind one of the photos and is just about how my Mom loves taking photos and me and my elder sister both hate having our photos taken!  So every time my Mom tries to take photos of us together we are always pulling faces and acting silly so it is not very often that she manages to get a photo of both of us smiling properly at the same time! (with these photos I think we were feeling sorry for her as I was about to return to the UK from our holiday to SA to visit them)  My poor Mommy!  Luckily for her, my younger sister has a really soft heart and is way more accommodating than her unruly older kids ;)
For the trim under the photos I wanted the top to be straight and the bottom gathered.  To do this I put a strip of double sided running below the photos and then stuck the top of the Vicki-B trim along it.  I then folded the fabric up neatly and poked two holes, one through the double sided tape and one a bit lower so I could use a large stitch to hold the fabric up.

I then stuck a piece of double sided tape under the 'hanging' part of the trim and then just manipulated the folds to sit how I wanted them and pushed them down onto the tape so they stay in place.

Then lastly of course added the trinkets with some foam dots to finish it off :)
