HAPPY PINK SATURDAY BACKGROUNDS


Pink is this year's colour - it's official! Home & Garden (a French blog) says so! So it must be true! Oh la la, what a colour!


However, it's not the same colour in my Photoshop7 programme - I had to use ColorZilla (a free Firefox app) to get the exact colour coding!

'Cup of Rose' by RegularJane on Deviant Art


Due to computer problems I haven't been participating lately, but as it's behaving itself again - AND I've sorted out my keyboard (see the post below this one) so I'm back to normal (ish) again. To celebrate, I've made a background and header set in two colourways - a little Spring-like (I'm positive Spring is just around the corner...)

LACE FLOWERS - PINK


As you can see, this works for a 3-colum blog - also the new Designer Templates! Here, I used Awesome No 2, then adjusted it to tone in with my background. This template will also work with some free WordPress templates (eg: Bueno) as well as the older Blogger templates (eg: Minima). It will also work with wide 2-col blogs etc.

Copy ALL the code and paste into an html widget box (it'll load fastest if the widget is at the bottom of your blog):
<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu313/1stFloorFlatComputery/749b8e3a.jpg"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
</style>
<div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top:50px; z-index:50; width:150px; height:30px;">
<a href="http://1stfloorflatblogology.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">

</a></div>
HEADER

Header design copyright Susie Jefferson - bee border from Penniwig's
Custom Text
Either left-click to bring the header up to full size, then right-click to copy to your computer. Add your own text using your favourite graphics programme. Upload to Blogger and tick 'Instead of title and description'. If using a 3-col or wide 2-col template, DON'T click the 'shrink to fit' option.

Blogger's Default Text
Either left-click to bring the header up to full size, right-click to copy to your computer, then upload to Blogger, using the default header text by ticking 'Behind title and description'. OR download the header code instead (above). Upload to Blogger using the default header text by ticking 'Behind title and description'.
LACE FLOWERS - BLUE

See the background in action live on Blade Rubber Stamps blog
This is using the old Editor, and a modified (to 3 columns) Minima template, so you can see how the same background design (although a different colourway) can work on different templates. You can also see that I customised the header with my own fonts. If you need to adjust the placement of the header in Minima or any of the older templates, here's my tutorial.

Copy ALL the code into an html widget:
<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url("http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu313/1stFloorFlatComputery/4d11cc0c.jpg"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
</style>
<div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top:50px; z-index:50; width:150px; height:30px;">
<a href="http://1stfloorflatblogology.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">
<img border="0" src="http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu313/1stFloorFlatComputery/9061ddc2.png"/>
</a></div>

    Hi Susie,

    I love these backgrounds...yes, I'm sure there will be a springtime this year..hee hee....I've been snowed in most of the past 5 weeks...and now this coming week is saying MORE snow!!! OMG, I need a break since I don't have a 4 wheel drive vehicle and so therefore can't get off this ridge..LOL Thomas came home the other day and had to break some ice on the road and put some chains on his tires to get up our ridge...

    I've seen the winter you are having...brrrr!!!! Glad your computer is behaving right now. I finally got my portable hard drive to be recognized by computer {again}.It definitely has a mind of its own.

    Have a wonderful day,
    Stephanie ♥

  8. Ooooo, pretty! I didn't get a pink post up yet this week. My husband has been out of town for 10 days and I have been up for 10 days. Still not comfortable sleeping in a new place.

    Glad to hear your computer is your friend again. I am simplifying, at least in my head, so much, I just want an iPad or similar for my BIG b'day in May.

    Too sweet to take the color of the year and make a background.

    So pretty, Susie...Love these Backgrounds and Headers. I'm not much for changing my Template since I do photos as big as I can get them and design my own headers based on my photos, but I really love your designs. Glad your puter is being nice. Happy Pink Saturday!

  14. I love your background that you have on your page!! It is just so happy and makes me smile. Happy Pink Saturday!!

  15. Susie, your blog designs are awesome. I am computer challenged and I wouldn't dream of doing this. I do love the ones you shared today. I always envy the way some bloggers change their backgrounds all the time. I wouldn't change my header because it is our mountain view. It is a real photo but some people think it is worked on. Nope, we get these rainbows across our mountains a couple times a year.

    Warm hugs, Jeanne
