I thought I would show what I used for my background. I'm going to redo my banner but haven't decided what to use yet. I want it to have a fun feeling but not "cutesy". I used part of the image on the left for the background side panels and part of the image on the right for the border of the side panels.
I love the class I'm taking through Jessica Sprague. I'm just so delighted to feel okay with editing HTML -- not worried about destroying my blog. Whew!!! I still need to work on the sidebar and signature. But we're getting there.
