And again!
I just tweaked my layout again - put the original colour header in place of the greyscale one and highlighted with yellow. Comments, please? Does it look hideous, because I'm just useless at this stuff. How dare literati leave me to my own devices for two days over New Year! Doesn't she know how dangerous that is?

(And yes, sweetie, I did keep a copy of your original code, just in case. *g*)

That's a bloody beautiful layout, hun. You did fantastic. VERY fantastic, trust me. ^_^

Thanks, sweetie.

The code is nothing to do with me, apart from the yellow. That's entirely my fault. *g*

Ooh I like this even better! You can tell Spike is smoking a cig in that one pic, rather than being just a big dark blob. Very good!
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 30th, 2004 10:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I didn't tweak any of the pics for the header, just used them as is, and was very surprised that they worked so well together. Even though.. yellow. o.o

I don't dislike it at all but I'd rather a cool colour, like blue. No hideousness to be seen, just a strong preference,

literati is a diamond. *cuddles*

Don't hate it, not a yellow fan.

Love you, though. :))

Strangely enough, yellow was not in the game plan. At all.

When a new layout was discussed, I threw out 'greyscale' and 'purple', but didn't get hit by inspiration. Weeks passed and then Literati tells me she's offline over New Year so I should MAKE THE DAMN HEADER!

I swear, what came out is completely untweaked. I didn't do anything to adjust colour balances at all. We tried for hours last night to bring the skin tones down into the layout but it just wouldn't work. In the end we went to greyscale for the layout and header, with purple highlights. But I like this better... for now.

Blue would have been good, but it just didn't happen. ;o)

LMAO. I can only imagine your terror at having no back-up! Literati is as indispensable as only a really good friend can be.

It's ever so pretty, and much easier to read, but I have a yellow, cowardy-custard thing.

Hee! try to think of it more as being wrapped securely in the warmth of Spike's Zippo flame. ;o)

And Literati has just texted me, at international rates, to point out that it's slashthedrabble time again and 'someone would probably like to see their pairings done again. ::whistles::'

I spoiled her rotten last week, writing a drabble in each of her pairings, my first non-Spander scribblings, as a thank you for bloodclaim's layout and she wants more!

She knows I'm practically incapable of saying no to her. She's such a tart. *g*

LOL. Works for me.

She knows I'm practically incapable of saying no to her. She's such a tart. *g*

Ah, the double threat - an irresistible tart. *g*

Happy New Year, love!

Yup. So, I guess I'd better get scribbling. *g*

Happy New Year! *smooch*

Happy New Year to your too, sweetheart. *smooch*

Sorry about your guitarcityphonelines on December 30th, 2004 11:27 pm (UTC)
I think it's lovely. The banner is gorgeous!
darkhavensdarkhavens on December 31st, 2004 12:01 am (UTC)
Thanks. Can't go wrong with such pretty boys, can I? *g*
Teresatgray on December 31st, 2004 01:52 am (UTC)
I do like the color a little better. It looks lovely!
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 1st, 2005 06:40 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :o)

I really like the yellow. It works well with the rest of the colors for your page. I would say it was a keeper!!

Thank you!

I'm still scared what my coding faerie will say when she sees it. *g*

hey.. I kept it too.. never fear ;)

I actually like it.. I mean seriously.. anything is better than that pink you had chosen and seemed to fall in love with..

::grin evilly::

pink girl ;)

It was late! (Early?)
There were copious amounts of whisky involved!
It was... Xander-elbow pink.
I was weak.
But now I'm yellow! *g*

You like? Really? Phew!

how can you just sit there and lie through your teeth like that?

You *loved* it, Pink Girl. I'm sure I could find the actual comment you made in yim........ ::weg::

Really sweetie I do.. I think we were both just too wired.. and I had Sammy here poking me to get off the net and we tried to add too much of the header into the layout.. less is more ;)

Years of practice. :P

I'm glad you think it works. I would never want to cross my code faerie. ;o)
