It has been a challenge trying to find the right look and feel for the D-Tour here, but I think I've finally landed on something I like and can live with.
I used Picnik to make my header and button. My daughter Payton made my button in the sidebar. She is quite talented. Be sure to take it with you before you leave. :)
I especially am pleased with my header (and love my boy in red!) The pictures of him on either side are before his dx and the one in the middle is the most recent and of course, after dx. I gave all the photos a gritty/grungy feel.
I picked up my background from Dotty dot dot. It's nearly perfect for the look and feel I was going for.
I will be doing some fine-tuning here and there, but for the most part I am done. I am one of those people who like to change things often, but I'm gonna roll with this.
