A Little Blog Design

As a Digital Scrapbook enthusiast, it only seems natural that I would want my blogs to have a personal design. The stock blogger designs just won't do. After a year or so designing and re-designing my daughters blog (lots of trial and error), I have finally found my rhythm in Blogger HTML and Photoshop. It has gotten easier with each new design. I like to keep the blog design a bit simple, with a little scrapbook flair. The focus for my daughters blog is the photos, so we don't want to detract from that. I also like simple because it makes it easier to change it up. I wouldn't want to change the design every month or two if I spent too many hours designing it in the first place. 

Anyway, I just wanted to share a couple of the blog designs I have worked on in the past month. My friend, Lindy, desperately needed a blog makeover for her daughters blog, so I created one for her as well. 

If you are interested in creating your own blog design I suggest googling it. There are a multitude of bloggers out there that have tutorials. I didn't use just one and a lot of mine was trial and error. 

I would be happy to answer any questions if you have them.
