Meet Mort

I'd like you to meet Mort & one of my darling nieces, Ashley B...

Aren't they both the cutest?? 
For a school project, Ashley B. designed, cut & stitched the lovely, lavender Mort all by herself! The girl has talent, I tell ya. The other puppet peeking over her shoulder is Mini Me Mr. Lee, a puppet made by her teacher...with a very striking resemblance to himself.

In this layout I used paper & rub-ons from American Crafts' Craft Fair line. Don't you just love that little sewing machine rub-on? I do! I cut the buttons out of the 'Ruth Buttonham' paper (this paper line also has the best names - 'Lola Threadgood', 'Doris Spooler' & 'Pearl Bobbinhauser', to name a few - aren't those names just too darn cute?). I backed the paper buttons with chipboard & covered them with a layer of Diamond Glaze for a shiny coating.

And now, for some odd reason, I have the catchy theme song to The Muppet Show stuck in my head! You know the one...'It's time to play the music, It's time to light the lights, It's time to meet the muppets on The Muppet Show tonight!' Ah, that tune brings back memories! (I loved eating popcorn & watching The Muppet Show with my grandpa Morrow - such good times.) And with that my friends, it's time for me to sign off AND apologize for getting that song stuck in your head too.


  1. Gorgeous LO, I love the crinkled and sewn down felt strip. The puppet is very cool too, my mum always had an obsession with puppets (she's a professional clown) so I'd love to try and make her one some day. Thanks for the inspiration on many levels!

  2. cute layout and even cuter niece! wyatt and i had the muppet show theme (without lyrics) played as our recessional at our wedding. it's a classic!

  3. Creativity definitely runs in the family! Both of your creations are super cute! And yep...the song is now stuck in my head....that's okay, at least it's not "It's a small world"...that one is much worse! hahaha
