He Had Blue Bubbles

Ok, so sometimes I  am a sucker for those little items right beside the cash register. They are in, what is often know in retail as the impulse bins. When my son requested the blue bubbles, I immediately said yes without thinking. We did have a blast, but let's make one thing known... they are an absolute MESS!

Blue Bubbles by Christy Strickler Supplies| cardstock: Colorbok; Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup; Alphas: Creative Memories; Mist: Tattered Angels, Ranger; Ink: SEI; Other: vellum, sequins; as seen in Scrapbook News and Review Magazine

Blue was the obvious choice to scrapbook these photos with. I loved the little circular elements in the Jillibean Soup papers.

 I used vellum to create pockets in the page. Simply cut away a shape, in this case, a circle, and glue vellum in the window it creates. Add a layer of solid cardstock behind with sequins glued into place. Glue some sequins on top of your pocket. Since the sequins are glued down, they won't move inside the pocket, however they still provide a sense of depth and movement.
