I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles!

Couldn't resist that, being a lifelong West Ham fan ( I appeared in the newspaper having just turned 5 years old, for singing it in a talent competition!)
Well life has been a little hectic for me, which has meant my blogging has been put on the back burner for a while, so I am pleased to say that I am getting back into the swing of things and returning to, "Duties", for the Scribble and Scrap Design Team. Whilst I have been away Lexie has been busy designing some really fabulous paper sets. I love having lots and lots of digi papers as they are always there when you need them and don't take up space!!
For my project I decided to use the "One for the Boys", paper set, for £5 you receive 62 patterned 6 x 6 papers and 8 plain papers!
As you can see the papers are extremely versatile and not just for the boys (girl power too!) I used a digi by Miran (her work is so fabulous and exceptionally colourable) which I just love because of the bubble blowing.
As always the theme of the challenge is, "ANYTHING GOES", and there are £15 worth of Scribble and Scrap vouchers available to the winning entry :)
I cut the papers on my Cameo and coloured the image with my copics, it was a challenge to try and get the right effect where the bubbles are in front of the hair. As an embellishment, I made a bubble wand from wire. I twisted it into shape added beads to the handle and glued tissue paper to the head. I typed "Make a wish", in Silhouette studio, reversed it and cut it in vinyl. This was then stuck on the back of the tissue paper. The front was heat embossed with UTEE and some frantage glitter was sprinkled in before it set.
Hope you like it!
Happy Crafting,
Denyse x
