What Do You Think?

As you can see, I have a brand new look.  I get restless in the cyber world so I like to play.  I have Incredimail which is a really fun email program.  I change its look regularly.  My Yahoo is also changed on a regular basis; as well as my avatar for it.  I suppose if I had the means and the drive, I would paint my house at least once a year, changing the look entirely.  Since I don't have either, I live that dream in the cyber world.

I spent most of the weekend working on it.  Here is what I did...

The Header:  For the header I used the picture below.
 
I opened Paint Shop Pro and did a panoramic crop.  Then, I copied a section of the picture with no people, and pasted it wherever there were people.  The lettering I selected inner beveling.

The Background:  The background is from The Cutest Blog on the Block.  The link can be found in the upper left hand corner.

I have been wanting a three column blog for ages.  Finally I found a very simple -- and by simple I mean SIMPLE--tutorial on how to do it.  You don't have to speak computer.  I have no clue what all that HTML stuff means.  I just know that after did what the tutorial said, I had three columns.  You can find the tut here.
The same site will link you to another post to adjust the margins.  This one was a little bit trickier, but I did it!!!  

Now, did you notice that cute CA GIRL button on the left?  Isn't she darling?  A dear bloggy friend of mine made her.  Thank you, muah!  I love it, but it didn't have a code.  So how do you do that?  I love those.  I want one.  Most of you have one.  So I found another simple tutorial here. 

So tell me, what do you think!?

I am SOOO SOOO impressed with your header picture. I would have never thought to edit the people out like that. I went back and looked at it and I can't even tell. Amazing!!!

I love the new look. It is so fresh!

I got the three column look, too. I was so tired of all of my stuff being jumbled on the right side of my page. Everything feels more spread out and accessible now. Love the look. It's really cute, especially the header. :)

Go you! Looks great.
I get that change-it-up bug all the time. Right now it's been about my hair. If I could change it and know that I could just switch templates if I don't like it I would!
