A NEW blog look!

When I was searching through the pictures for my previous blog post I came across this gorgeous picture that my oldest daughter took.  I’ve been wanting a photo header for my blog but hadn’t really put in any effort to take one or find one.

But this picture? It just screamed “I’m the ONE! Use me.  I’m the right colors.  I bring a smile to your face.  I make you think of life.” 

I tried using photobucket to jazz up the picture and add text but that just didn’t work for me.  A fellow Review Crew team member had mentioned something about picmonkey so I checked it out.  (I really liked it!  It was easy to use and I could save the picture to my computer. I did not even have to register or create an account! Pic Monkey.)

I pulled BooBear away (multiple times!) from her piano practice so help me decide.  This frame or that?  This effect or the other one?  I used the text feature to add the name of my blog.  Then of course she had to help me pick just the right combo of colors for the blog background.

So what do you think?  Isn’t the photo gorgeous!
