All Dressed Up

So, what do you think of the new blogwear?

I wanted something different...preferably black and white.

I was inspired by our family portraits and asked my dear friend, August, if she could help me come up with something. Something like a newspaper, since this is where I report our family happenings...but still something cute...and with our family portraits...and cute...and sophisticated. Did I mention cute?

This is what I found in my inbox this morning.

Don't you just love it?

I do!

Thanks August!

I owe you dinner!

Love it! One thing I don't like about these blog backgrounds is that they don't move when you scroll. It would be neat as you scroll down to see more photos.

Cute??? Not the "C" word I would use. Classy. Very classy. Love it!!!

@ Tammy, the reason the background is stationary is because it would take too long to load. If your readers have slower internet connection and if your site is graphics intensive, then it would be even slower.

It's easy enough to change the code for the background to move. But since it would be the same "look" there's not much reason to do it.

guess I commented how I liked the new look on the wrong blog - oops! do love it!

Fonda, here's a link to preview if you want the background to move. Let me know if you want the code and you can play with it. :)
