Well, yesterday WAS an experiment.
This morning, I tried again since I had more time. After wasting an hour I discovered none of the backgrounds available worked for me. All my photos were the wrong size for the design I picked. And frankly, when it comes down to it, I want the words and photos to speak for themselves. Everything in little boxes separated by bursts of color were just too distracting for me.
So for now, I'm sticking with blue skies. Seems like a good theme for spring.
