New Blogger Templates

Hello everyone!
As you can see I have spent the weekend fooling around (again) with my blog and some new graphics. I worked all day Friday trying to find just what I wanted and then that evening I received an email from Blogger announcing that they had new templates.
Great! A whole day down the drain cause you know that I just had to hop on over to check the new stuff out.

If you haven't checked out the new templates, well then you must.
I love the fact that you can now change your template, background, fonts and font color with just a click of a button and the best part is that you don't have to know anything about HTML codes. Blogger takes care of all of that mess for you and you can preview it all before you click to make it final.
The bad part is that the backgrounds are still pretty plain. It's better than before but there are still so many others out there to choose from. Ones that will fit *you* and your personality or likes so much better.
I found that I loved the ease of using these templates but preferred to find a bit more stylish banner for the top. As you can see on the right hand side of the screen that there is still one little bird flying in the air that I just can't seem to make disappear. I'm still working on it though! I haven't given up yet.
It's always a work in progress, right?
If you haven't checked out these new features then I suggest you do so. You might find something that you like.
Also let me know what you think of my new digs.
I kind of think it looks a bit busy with the three columns and am debating on changing it back to a 2 column. But first I'll wait and see if I get any great suggestions from you all.
Hope you have enjoyed the weekend.
I'm heading to the couch to watch "Blind Side" for the second time.
Maybe this time I can stay awake to watch the whole thing.

I think it looks great, I like the colors and it's font colors are easy to read. The header is really cute. Nice job!

I love it, I don't think it looks busy at all and I love that cute pup peekin' under the fence:)

Oh, I like it! I'm partial to 3 columns. My only suggestion is to increase the width of your main column slightly. I didn't know Blogger had new templates out, but I had noticed some changes in their uploading system...it's about time they offered more!
