New Look

I've given my blog a little facelift. If only it were that easy for me! Once I changed it, then I realized that I would have to redo my header, then I changed my "tunes" to pink. After flipping in and out of my blog a few time, my music was beginning to get on my nerves...and I wondered if it bothered everybody who stopped by my blog as much as it did me....so.....I changed that too. Now, if you'd like to listen to my tunes while you're here, just scroll down and click on the arrow to play. Changing out the blog was a lot more work than I thought it would be. I had to figure out how to change the font colors so that they showed up. Yep! It's been a real learning experience. I've done a little scrapping this weekend and tried out something new I'd been thinking about. I wanted this layout to look like peeling wallpaper. I'm not sure I really got exactly what I was trying to do, but this is close. This is a photo of me taken in about 1956, that I scanned and changed to sepia tones. I added hidden journaling behind the large photo mat. It tells a little about why I was dressed up like this and a few memories that I wanted to jot down for my children. Thanks so much for stopping by! Leave a comment and let me know that you've been here!
