Okay, I have tried my hand at designing my own blog using digital scrapbooking elements....AND....I'm not as pleased as I hoped I would be.
This is actually a "blog in a box" that you can purchase here. I bought this because it came with very good instructions and I thought it would help me understand the how and where of the html code. It basically did, but I'm not happy that there are boxes around some of my elements. I thought they would be transparent around them (i.e. the star where it says "about me"). ********update********
Ken looked at it on his laptop and the squares weren't there. They are definitely there on the desktop....so you may or may not see the squares....oh well.
I did figure out how to create my own header and buttons with scrapbooking stuff so that was helpful. I will keep researching and maybe by the time we have another scrap weekend I'll be able to give everybody free lessons on digital scrapbooking and maybe blog design.
We were hit with the strep bug again....I'm hoping that this is the last time considering this the fourth child. Hopefully, we'll be well enough for church tomorrow.
