Ta-Dah!!

Well, what does everyone think about my first attempt at creating my own blog template? Thanks to Caroline Bingham's step-by-step 'how-to', I gave it a whirl today. It took some time, but, like she says, once you get used to all the codes, it's no big deal.
Thanks Caroline!!
Her blog link is on my sidebar if anyone wants to try for themselves. The first time, you might want to try during nap time. However, it may have just taken me longer because I'm so indecisive. Even now, I'm thinking, "What else can I change?"......... "There's a lot of cute paper out there."....... I haven't figured out how to make a spectacular header yet, so any suggestions on that would help.
Also, does anyone know why I'm having trouble getting spaces between my paragraphs?

very cute page!! I love the green and black

cute cute! I ♥ this paper.

In your settings tab, there's a section for spacing, go there and change it. (I think the options are like, single hard return or something.) Anyways. That's where it's located.

Plus, in your HTML, in the section where it has text-alignment, change yours from "center" to "left".

Love it!! I can do headers, but playing with the html makes my brain hurt. I'm very impressed!!

Hi Carolyn!! I've checked you out a few times and now it's time to reveal myself. Cute blog and Cute fam!

I know the HTML code for paragraphs, but it won't let me put it here on comments. Argghhh.

No, we live in a townhouse (which is pretty nice) in the Sunnyside neighborhood (which is not pretty nice).

Very cute! I have no idea how to do this and I keep asking Jared to change mine for me, but apparently it isn't on the top of his list!
