I haven’t completely decided, but I’m leaning towards Mode Parisienne. I’m going to try it out for a week and see if I like it better than Banana. If not I may just throw all your votes out and go with Mae Muhler! Take that! *wink*

or maybe I’ll change my template every month… there’s an idea!

The Great Template Change Extravaganza Day Seven November 6, 2008

Here we are, it’s the last day of the Extravaganza. My Grandma will be happy, she told me she can’t figure out my Blog these days since it keeps changing so much! Sorry Grandma!

Today’s design is hard to describe. It is a template I used the other day, but I have changed it a whole bunch so now it is much different. I’m not sure if that has voided the creative commons license? I don’t know. I still want to give them credit because they did all the hard work, I just adjusted some sizing here and there and changed the colors and made my own header image.

So, this is Shiny by, modified by me. I am going to call it Banana just so we all don’t get confused, okay?

So, come back tomorrow to cast your vote!
