First Post, My First Blog Layout!

I am just starting my blog, and trying things out!  I couldn't find a blogger layout template that appealed.  I noticed a lot of the cute layouts have a credit in the corner for thecutestblogontheblock.  What a great site!  I did not use any of their wonderful free backgrounds, but I did rely on their Blog Secrets to customize this blog layout and create my own background!

I started with the Minima layout because it looked the easiest to alter.  Just like my love of altered art, I had to start my blog by altering it.  I added a third column, changed the width,  and it went on from there!  

They recommended the Digi Scrap Depot website for freebies, and were my eyes opened!  I am a graphic/web designer and had never known about digital scrapbooking.  I went a little crazy on my background, but I was having such a good time with digital paper and elements from the Beautiful collection by Bel Vidotti!

I hope it is not too much.  Let me know what you think. Future posts will contain info and pictures on cards and other projects, so please check back.
