Blogger Template

Just messing around a bit with my background and header. I plan to do more but for now this will do. I would like to set up a 3 column layout (using this tutorial) and make my posting space wider. I am amazed at all the beautiful blogs I have been seeing on the blog list for Shimelle’s class. My biggest frustration today was trying to get my background image to appear the correct size. I wanted to use my images from Picassa but they just wouldn’t size properly. I had to resort to using Photobucket. Can anyone tell me how to  get my images the correct size using Picassa?

Anyway…no photo for today. It was very cold and windy by the time I got up and about today. We did plant tulip, crocus and daffodil bulbs. I love these springtime flowers!

Here is a layout that I have in progress:


I still need to to the title and journaling.

Today’s prompt was “Public vs Private”. I’m somewhere in the middle ground on this. I don’t publish too much personal information but don’t feel like I have to hide either. If I had journaling that I felt was too personal, I would probably just blur it with PhotoShop.

Off to view some of the blogs of other class participants!

Love the colors in your blog template. I love red, cream & black, and your colors are a very interesting variant of that. I also love how you posted a layout that doesn't show much of the subject's face . . . nice use of the prompt.
