Fall Blog LayOuts

Hi everybody! Sorry I have been MIA from this blog for a few days. I was so excited to start this blog and here I cant even keep it up! LOL! Anyway,
I was having issues with photobucket uploading these and getting them to the right size. Anyway, here is a fall layout and header I made using ShabbyPrincess Harvest Spice kit. You can just open the header in adobe or whatever you use and add photos and/or text to make it your own. So I experimented on my own blog with this layout, and it didn't erase any of my widgets. So, you should be ok. Just save your current Html in case. Remember, I am new to this and I am sure I will get better as time goes on, but please bear with me! :)
Above: Blog Below: Header

Here is how you make this you back ground:
Set your template to Minima
Then click on ‘edit HTML’ You'll see a crazy code with a bunch of funny signs, scroll to where you see this:

body {
background:$bgcolor;
margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;

Change that part of the code to say this:


body {

background:$bgcolor;background-image:url(direct link);background-position: center; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed;

margin:0; color:$textcolor; font:x-small Georgia Serif; font-size/* */:/**/small; font-size: /**/small; text-align: center;


Now, insert this direct link in the parenthesis

And save. To get your header download here.

I plan on making a few more Fall/Autumn backgrounds and headers. Then it's on to Christmas! Yay! I am going to be adding some fun word art for your pages soon. I love making word art. Leave a comment if there is a certain name/saying/color combo you want me to do.
Have a great afternoon!

Those are great! Maybe you can do something with one of my kits... I know I sell Backgrounds, but still, do one at least! Great job!
