New Blog Background & Header

I finally learned how to create a new background AND header! Woo Hoo!  I am having so much fun.

It seems, however, that depending on your screen resolution it may not look right. Sorry for that!

This color palette is my FAVORITE!! I'll probably be tweaking it often as I learn new tricks in PhotoShop Elements. What a great program! I can't believe I waited so long to buy it!

Have a wonderful day!

Wow, that is gorgeous! Very nice work! The picture of Eli is my favorite part of the re-design, though!

I love all that you're sharing about Eli. I teach students with special needs (K-5) that are severe/profound. Most of my students have CP, so I can understand so much of what you were sharing! Eli is absolutely gorgeous! I so want to be his teacher! I want all the kids!!!

Your blog background totally ROCKS! I'm working on a "one size fits all" background plan, but have come to any solution yet.

Thanks for taking time to stop by, and have a super fantastic day!

Here's to more happy scrapping, and
Hugs from the heart,

Thanks for your comment on my blog and I'm glad your sister could use them on her blog...they look good!!!

So, maybe to make your screen look better you could do the following: Go to Start; Control Panel; Display...once you are in Display click on "Settings" and move the pixel bar as far over as possible...this will give you the best resolution possible on your screen. See if it works for you.

Your son is adorable!!!!! And he is precious in all your sleeping photos! I love his age group that's why I work with the preschoolers. They are so much fun, and LOVE school! It is very rewarding!
