Blog Design, That Song in My Head & Giveaway Stuff

A new blog design has been rolling around in my head for about a month now and I finally buckled down and did it this weekend.  What I love about my old design was that it had meaning!  It was all about my kids.  Heck they were all over it!  That lent itself to memories; which is one of the reasons this blog was born.  With my new design I wanted to keep those memories but simplify the design.  I wanted to stick with the “party” theme since my blog name states just that.  And with those ideas in hand the firework idea came.  I took quite a few pictures of the fireworks while we were down in Florida this summer and I thought if I could figure out how to edit them enough to make them into the calming color scheme I was desiring, I would be happy.  A little time and experimentation in Photoscape & PicMonkey and here we are.



I LOVE how my blog design still has a special meaning for me but that simplistic look I love.

Switching gears now…Have you guys seen this video?  My girl Brooke shared it on Facebook and I think it’s AWESOME!  So funny!! 


Now, you will be singing “Call Me Maybe” all day too.  You are welcome.


Oh, and don’t forget to enter the current GIVEAWAY going on now!
