Templates

When I first started blogging, I didn't really care about my template. Everyone seemed to have the same generic design. And life was simple. But then suddenly everyone started getting customized headers. I was jealous. I wanted my blog to look fabulous too. A few months later, Mary graciously agreed to make me a header for free. And it was lovely...
But then the kids' pictures became outdated. I thought about contacting Mary again, but decided that she would think that I was annoying. So instead, I kept my header for a few more months. Then one day Z's Mom had a fancy new template on her blog that she uploaded for free from Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates. I was super excited! A FREE TEMPLATE!

So I picked out a nice summery theme. This is my current template, but guess what? I am bored and want another template. I am so damn annoying. But instead of going the free template route again, I followed Z's Mom's advice. I have been messing around with scrapblog, trying to make my own custom header. I have narrowed it down to two options, and I would love to know which one you like best.

Option A...Option B...

Midwest Mommy said...

Ok, I told myself I had to make up my mind before I read the other comments and I have to say they all agreed with me...such smart people!
B is the best!

I like option B. It's got nice colours in it for the Fall ~ and a couple of cute kids!

Danielle said...

I like them both. But I think I like B a smidge better.

I love the top one, very nice!

dani said...

i like them both, christy;) a is probably my favorite (i love the color green, though). good luck changing it.
when you changed it the last time, did you lose your widgets??? i have lost them once, and now i'm kind of afraid to change anything by my background (which sucks because my collumn background is transparent).
love,
dani

Amber said...

Dana said...

now ya see.... i like A better.. I like how the pictures are with the white behind them.. I also like the green with the brown ribbon.. But I will say I like B also... Decisions decisions....

Jeninacide said...

Option B. Totally..

Z's Mom said...

Hey Christy....dang...you and I are related... I'm so bored with my template right now and if I hadn't been so busy I would have changed it already again too!

Both of those options are great...but, sis, I think I agree with the others that I like the 2nd one the best!

Mekhismom said...

I like A.

iMommy said...

I like A! It's easier to see the tag line, and the green is soothing and shows of your kids pics. :-)

(PS. I've totally been playing scrapblog trying to get some bloggy design on, too! Maybe I'll reveal mine in the next weeks...)

Steph said...
