So Dog Gone Cute - Layout Featuring a Pie Chart!

Happy Friday blog world! It seemed like Friday took forever to arrive this week but finally it's here!

Today I have a layout I created for Sketches in Thyme. I was asked to be a guest designer after I won the February sketch challenge. If you haven't been to their blog, they post three sketches per month. I love the variety of pages and photos in their sketches. And the "Sketchy Mavens" always have some amazing inspiration!

This week's sketch is a two-pager but I turned it into a one-pager to feature this Instagram photo I took of my cute dog and my cute shoes! I was trying to send my friend a picture of my new shoes and the doggie decided to photobomb!

Sketch #109


This was my first time making pie charts and I think I am hooked! They are so easy and make the perfect embellishment. I am also in love with this beautiful Amy Tangerine line, Ready Set Go.

Side note: Did you know that you can now print Instagram pictures at Walgreens??? And with their phone app it is SUPER DUPER easy!

Submissions for this week's sketch challenge are due by the end of the month. To see the other two sketches and the Design Team's take on this sketch, head on over to the Sketches in Thyme blog. They are also currently holding a Design Team call.

Thanks for reading!

Challenges:
Paper Issues - Instagram Link Party
Use Your Stuff - Challenge #80 Music & Lyrics - Marvin Gaye "I'll be DogGone" and the Martha Stewart doily has been in my stash for at least two years!

XOXO,

I think everything published made a great deal of sense.

But, what about this? what if you composed a catchier post title?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean "So Dog Gone Cute - Layout Featuring a Pie Chart!" is a little plain. You could look at Yahoo's front
page and see how they create news titles to
grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to
get readers excited about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
