Bloggy Hint # 4- Making it Pretty

A Belle and her Beau (who by the way, is beyond precious) asks: next I need to know who creates all these super cute blogs! do you all know how to do that yourselves? I sure hope not or then I will feel really bad. I got my background free from suckmylolly but my mother says i need to remove it bc it sounds like a porn site :) lol.

Well, Belle, (can I call you Belle?), if I can figure out cute, so can you!

First, I had to find a pink template because I'm all about the pink. Now, I just used a blogger template since I didn't know about all those background sites when I was first setting up the blog. So I chose Ms. Moto for all its pinkness.

But I really think it's the header that really gives the blog its "look". I make my headers at Scrapblog. They have lots of super-cute stuff for absolutely free.

After you've made your masterpiece, chose the option under File to export as jpeg. This will save your page as a picture on your computer. Then you'll just upload that on blogger as your header!
Let me know if you have further questions!

I found my background as pyzam.com but I will have to check out that header thing, mine is a bit boring!

OOH I love that scrapblog website I am no officially addicted to it. I love to scrapbook anyways and this is so much fun.

I use a scrapblog header on my "family" blog... I love that site!

Yours is too cute!

I have a custom-made design for my "regular" blog.

Hey, I JUST posted about using Scrapblog for headers today, BEFORE reading your post. Eerie!

You were the one who originally tipped me off to scrapblog many months ago. I love that site.

Thanks for the heads up on Scrapblog. I created a new header for my blog and also created a collage of pics of the family. Not sure what I'm going to do with it... but I was having fun playing...

I had to resort to paying someone who is far more creative than I am to design a cute header for me... so worth it!!!
