I'm really not 100% happy with it, but I think I've spent enough of my weekend trying to make my wallpaper and header work right.
Until I'm ready for another brain melt-down - this will have to do.
There is only so much html self-help my brain will absorb.
I will however thank the following pages for their help:
For the idea of re-vamping my blog and for the graphics to start on the header: The Cutest Blog on the block.
For a lovely background & check out all the other design elements on this blog : Tea for Two Scraps
For the sheep (and some tags that I've not yet added to the sidebars because my brain has melted) : Barb
For the Tutorials that did help until my brain fried: Blogger Template Design.
