blog designing...

I'm no expert in Blogger that is for sure, but I do have fun playing with all the different options that are available.
So, when my friend Kim emailed me to help her spruce up her blog a bit, I was excited to help out. 

I began by searching Pinterest for links to free fonts like these...

I then searched through Kim's Pinterest page to see what sort of designs caught her eye. I found this one & loved the idea...





**Side note: Kim has lived in three different states and I know that she has gained family, friends, & tons of memories from each of her homes.
I wanted to incorporate that into her design.
Thus the focus on Utah,Iowa, & Texas.


Next stop: Google - where I found this image...

Through the magic of Photoshop, I created this...

My color scheme came from this lovely image...

All together now...

Head on over to Kim's blog to see the finished product & don't forget to leave her some love!

Tell me your thoughts. How does your creative process work?
