Click on image to enlarge

This is another one of my designs that I have updated, to go with Blogger's New Template Designer, for those of you that have switched to the new templates. This one is the French Newspaper Background. You can use this with the 2 or 3 column templates that are offered with the designer.

Follow these instructions to easily add this background to your blog:

1)While in the "Template Designer" screen, select the "Picture Window" template (my backgrounds work best with the blue clouds
and green grass,looking one) or you can also use any of the "Awesome Inc" templates if you prefer.
2)Click on "Back to Blogger".
3)Click on "Add A Gadget"
4)Scroll down the box and click on "Html/Javascript"
5)In the "Content Box" cut and paste the Html code posted below
6)Give your box a title ( This step is no longer required by Blogger, but it can be helpful) you can use the word "Background" so that you can find it later!
7)Click "Save" and you are done!
8)Optional Recommended step - Move the box, where you placed the code, towards the bottom of your gadgets, since whatever title you gave it, will be displayed on your blog.

<style type="text/css">body {background-image:url("http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq185/thebackgroundfairy/backnewsfrench9.jpg"); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
</style><div id="tag" style="position:absolute; right:925px; top:10px; z-index:50; width:150px; height:45px;"><a href=
"http://www.backgroundfairy.com/" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="http://i446.photobucket.com/albums/qq185/
