My Creative Sketches: Jillibean Macho Nacho

When my son was 2, we entered a contest and won 4 passes to see The Muppets, the sweet and joyful movie version that came out late last year.  It was my son’s first trip to the cinema.  For him, it was a fun outing with popcorn!  For me, it was pure nostalgia: Kermit, Miss Piggy and all the rest. Sigh.  Jim Henson was a genius.

Being a scrapbooking mama, I considered bringing my “big camera” along but thought that might be a bit over the top for our local cinema.  So, I used my iphone instead to snap a couple photos.


For this layout, I used Jillibean Soup’s fun Macho Nacho line. I love the paper with the TV icons. So cute!  And perfect for this page since The Muppets started as a television show. I tried to use the big circle to echo the idea of a film reel or old movie camera.  The TV sticker is from October Afternoon.  I added a couple brads for knobs then pop dotted it on the layout.

The layout is based on this sketch from My Creative Sketches.


This is the new sketch for September and is part of a four-week challenge that kicks of today and ends October 14.  There’s a terrific prize for the winner (see below).  The winner will be chosen by random draw on October 15.  Just link up your page to enter.  


We’d love to have you play along. You can find all the details here on the My Creative Sketches blog.

  1. Here's a little "secret" about me. In college, I used to watch snippets of Sesame Street every once in a while. :) I love that show (and the Muppets). Love your choice of background for this. :) It adds a subtle, neutral background for all of the fun color. The stitching adds some great texture and the brads for TV knobs is such a cute touch!
