I must have gone through every template in Blogger's new template designer and still couldn't find what I really wanted! LOL So I fired up my graphics program and started playing. I love these colours... they are my favourites... and I hope you find this new look pleasing.
BTW the new template designer is much slicker than the old one... give it a try! And, for those of you on Blogger who want to remove the navigation bar from the top of the page, here's how you do it:
Go to your html editor. Download your template before you make any changes. Scroll down the html until you come to the "variables". Right before this, put in this code:
display: none !important;
Save your page and when you view it, the bar should be gone.
Hope you find this useful...
