New look with my new skillzzz

Reader readers, pop on over for a peek at the new style around here.  I’ve been learning new things, like I mentioned a few days ago, and I put together a bit of a makeover.  It’s not fully complete, but it’ll do for now.  I need to still work on my widget images for the sidebar, but I just don’t have the stamina to stay up and do it.  (Kinlee’s been terrible in the sleeping and (un)pleasant department…my total sleep time in the last 4 nights is right about 14 hours.  You can imagine my temperament. Wish I had the ability to NOT let the fatigue take over like that…but I digress…)

See what you think… this was my first attempt at a popular style of backgrounds/headers and digiscrapping trends that I’m not as familiar with, but it didn’t turn out too badly, in my opinion.  I’ve incorporated some fun CSS and html things, but no one will probably notice them specifically unless you play with them too.  But the overall picture is kind of cool, I think.

Also, if you’re interested… There are free Blogger backgrounds here, there’s info here about Just RK Designs, which is simply a name I threw onto a button when it was recommended(thanks, Shelley!), and there is a gallery here to show some of the makeovers I’ve done.

I’m no pro.  Don’t think I’m saying I’m all that.  Far from it.  But I like to do it and I’m learning all the time, so for now, it’s fun, and it’s even more fun to share… so let me know if you need something!


  1. Looks great! I got Photoshop Elements for Christmas with the intention of doing some really neat things, but right now it overwhelms me a bit...where did you get your instruction from or did you just learn by doing?

  2. OMG, It's beautiful!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tulips!!!!
