Got Buttons? and Tweeks to My Blog Design

Hi Everyone! I am so super duper exited because I have finally got my very own Katie's Nesting Spot button! I hope you all like it, I made it myself as well as the header that you were all so sweet about commenting on.

A big thank you to my blog partner Katie from A List Maker's Life for helping me figure out the code. Please use the html code to add the button graphic and link and not the picture above. That file is pretty big and will show up giant sized on your blog, that is unless you WANT a giant sized button on your blog☺ I think all the kinks are worked out, but let me know if you have any problems, please.

I'd love to exchange buttons with you! Email me or leave a comment on this post if you want to swap!

Krystal Hartley's A Beautiful World digital kit continued to inspire me, and it was really quick to whip up the design. The only thing that would make this kit perfect for me is if it had a tree in it but other than that I'm in love with it. You should all stop by and see her other designs at The Sweet Shoppe Designs. She is so talented, very nice, and even answered my newbie to digi world questions for me.

While I've got you, I'd like to point out I changed the colors for my titles from burgandy to purple and my link color to blue. I thought these matched my new header more. Any thoughts on their readability?

I've had my technical support, i.e. DH Brad working on making a simple text navigation bar and I'm going to try and remove the boxes from around my pictures soon too. I'll also be changing the column color soon, as the green no longer really matches my theme. Or do you think it still looks okay? I really like the subtle pattern and have no idea how to replace that with a different one. I will probably end up changing them to white.

Hope you're all having a great day and I will try not to inundate your inbox with updates tomorrow!

UPDATE Later On the Same Day: Just used this a tute from Split Decisionz to remove my borders around pictures in my post. Lots of great tips there, check it out!

Also, thank you for all your support and kind words of encouragement! If you were one of the first to grab my button and got a white box underneath it, please grab the new code available now and reupload I'd appreciate it! I will be adding all the button exchanges tomorrow, I hope!
