    Hi Karen
    thank you for the lovely backgrounds. I tried the grey with ribbons and was successful but only part way, the center of the blog remained the same color as it was previously, what did I do wrong?
    thank you

  7. Thank you so much to share so beautiful stuff !

  8. Hi Elizabeth,
    With a last name like "Golden" I think yellow would be very appropriate for your blog. Such a great name you have! I will certainly keep creamy yellow in mind for a future background.

    Hi Angelfeather,
    Usually when someone has difficulty adding one of my backgrounds it's because they are not using the standard "Minima" blogger template. There are variations of Minima but you need the standard/basic version on your blog to get the best results with my backgrounds. Try switching to Minima and see if that does the trick, if not please let me know.

    Hi Oksana,
    Thanks for visiting here!
