Welcome to my new look blog!

Do you like my new look blog?  I have Shimelle to thank for this.  I recently took her online Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers, and was lucky enough to be one of her few blog ‘makeovers’.  The idea is to showcase my photos, but I love how pretty it looks!  I’d love your feedback to please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Can you read it OK?

 

On another note, I just had to show this off:

LOAD511 010LOAD511 011

This is my LO for day 13 and 14 of LOAD.  (By the way I forgot to put a link on yesterday’s post – click here for more information)  It is a page kit from Basic Grey.  I more or less followed the design, and I love it!  It goes so well with these photos of Lucy when she was little.  I decided not to have such big kit after I stopped subscribing to Cocoa Daisy, as I have way too much stash (don’t we all?).  I saw this kit at a crop I went to recently with Cre8tive shop.  Katie from Cre8tive handles the Basic Grey kits,  which just have enough stash for a double page spread like this.  This one is absolutely gorgeous, it’s the Hello Luscious line.  I’m looking forward to my next kit arriving at any moment! So if you fancy a page kit, I would definately recommend this one!

Gorgeous bloggy makeover Linda and that page is stunning. Now you know I want to buy those page kits too! Everything is really clear, but I am having to squint a bit to read the links (probably my eyesight!), the colour is very pale on my screen. x

Love the look but I find it a bit hard to read the pink writing over the grey stripes

As soon as your blog page opened I thought - Oh I love that! It is stunning and such a lovely photo.

It looks fantastic, Linda! I love the clean, crisp look. And that banner photos is beautiful - so sharp. I am in such bad need of my own makeover. I am working on a blog banner, but it is taking me a long time. Thank you so much for listing me on your blog list! I am humbled by that. I'm so glad you enjoy my blog. : )

I love the makeover. The photo header is stunning and everything else really allows that to stand out. Gorgeous layout too, btw!

Hi Linda! Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog. I hadn't had a chance to come look at yours yet.... well, not since the makeover! It's looking fab!! I especially love the header. Did you take that photo?? Congrats on winning the makeover, I bet you're pleased that you got in there early... I know I definitely am!

I really like the look of your blog - the punch of color in the header and the clean look for your content is wonderful! Lovely layouts also and they pop off the white background!

Hi Linda.... popping over from BBFS.
Love the mosaics you used, a good idea if you want to show lots of photos. I did not see your earlier blog so not sure what changes you have made, but I love how it looks now and the header is stunning. It immediatly grabbed my attention. Agree with some of the other comments that the links are too light - hard to see on the screen. Hope to have time to update my blog soon. I loved the course and it is good classmates are still popping in and using the forum.
