I first tried several different backgrounds from The Cutest Blog on the Block, and didn't find one that really went well. On their website they have some instructions on how to create your own, so I followed the steps, used some digital scrapbook papers, some fun elements, and thought I had it. Unfortunately, it just wasn't that simple. It would come out repeating the background, way too big, or too small.
Here is one where it is way too big-
With lots of help, from tcbotb, and some very kind etsy members, we actually problem solved this. My screen is a wide screen, so I needed to make the images much, much smaller, since it enlarges and stretches everything. For the repeating, MovieProps from etsy figured that one out, and even a few more glitches. He even gave me the html coding to finally get it all right.
THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who helped out with getting my little blog looking like new!!!
