Wow!! I love blogland..........

Thank you guys!!!!

I found the perfect header and background at hippo scraps i have put a link in my side bar please go and check it out there is some totally scrummy stuff there!............

Can anyone point me in the right direction????

I have been blog hopping a lot recently and I am seeing lots of fabulous spring blog makeovers...beautiful,beautiful blogs!!
then I head home to mine and although I love it its a little dark and wintery so i would love to change it for something a little more 'spring like' with a brown, mint and pink theme (and butterflies..of course lol!!) so I maybe wouldn't have to change my header (as this was one I bought as I am much too rubbish to make my own... hmmm! maybe I should try that again this aft) so if you know of any free sites apart from 'the cutest blog on the block' as i have scoured their files lol I would be grate ful if you would give me a nudge in the right direction......
lots of love hugs'n' stuff
