PTI Make It Monday #162: Paper Scrap Pie Charts

This week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge is a good one! And you know, they usually freak me out, but not this one!! I went to my enormous scrap folder and just started pulling out random scraps of paper. I thought my theme color was going to be turquoise, but it turned out to be green, but turquoise, or in this case, Aqua Mist, looks GREAT with the final project! I nearly ruined the whole thing because I thought I would use a small die so I adhered my pie pieces to a circle. Therefore, when I ran the whole thing through the Cricut using one of the dies from Fabulous Frames, I had bits of paper shooting out all over the place and the frame itself nearly fell apart! Once I put it all back together, I used the large frame and the inner medallion (both from one die) and added a random piece of coral cardstock for contrast. I stamped the sentiment from Round & Round on a banner I cut using another die from Fabulous Frames. I added a piece of Washi tape to the bottom and a button from PTI's Holiday Mix Vintage Button collection.
