BJ's Makeup Blog - 2 column

BJ is a makeup artist. BJ lives in Las Vegas. BJ is a very dear friend of mine. We have alot in common :) So I've been hounding her forever about blogging. She has so many stories and pictures that it was just a shame that this wasn't happening. So on a gig last week I was showing her all the Blog Rockin I had been doing and she caved! "OMG Mar! Okay make me a blog. They're so freaking cute!" She cut me a check then and there. She's very proactive.

The design was primarily to keep in the same vein as her website. Eventually she will have a link to her blogging antics.

I must admit, it sure is fun to toon your friends. She doesn't have the highlights anymore so i eliminated them.

Purple and green have always been BJ's thing so I had to get the green back in there.

BJ is TOTALLY new to blogging. She doesn't even know what a comment is... LOL so leave her one so we can freak her out when she gets the email notification I set her up on! She does have great tips and stories though, so be sure to Ask BJ! Visit BJ's Makeup Blog and see for yourself!!

Happy Hour Somewhere, Three Column Format

All the cool kids are 3 column formatting these days. Let me introduce you to Kat from Happy Hour Somewhere. She found me through the lovely Miss L from Tampons and Chocolate. Kat's inspiration for her blog was pretty simple she loves black, greens and jewel tones and Jack Daniels. Well you ask Blog Rock and you shall receive. Anything goes..
I took elements from the J.D. design and worked them into Happy Hour Somewhere's new look.
But first I wanted to capture Kat's pretty face for Kustom Kartoon Kat! Doesnt she have a great smile?
Here we've worked Kat's favorite things into her header. A highballer, a teddy bear (as she refers to one daughter) and a bowl of Hot Tamales (as she refers to the other daughter)
In her grab button I utilized the center of the J.D. design. I really dig this. And below click on the screen capture to view custom backgrounds. I made them all from scratch. I may not be so good in the kitchen but I can rock the keyboard..

Finally we have her Signature and Favicon.

So visit Happy Hour Somewhere for the full effect, I also threw in a scrolly frienship button, too much widget clutter nerves me..
