Very upbeat color scheme, your blog looks fun.
Your signature logo is a nice special touch. Bear with me here I'm not sure of the "official name" for the pink gadget logos behind Family, about me, etc. They add to the personalization of your blog, very nice!the only suggestion for change would be the word verification. Turning this feature off makes posting comments a breeze.

Hi, Shellie
nice blog and pretty color scheme. Love the categories section and your layout works great.

just one thing,, the word verification is the only thing i dont like.

Hello!! Popping from the blog hop :0) Looks like you've got something really great started here!! My only suggestions would be that the pink and green in your header are a bit hard to read. Maybe a softer version of each?

Also, I learned from expierence that the "word verification" option when you post a comment will prevent a great amount of people from doing so. If you turn it off, Im sure many people will appreciate :0)

Hell again :0) I tried to reply to your comment on my post but you have it set to NO REPLY (another easy fix). Its very easy to turn of the Word Verification. Under your settings tab click Comments. Scroll down and click NO to word verification.

To make sure you're not a NO REPLY blogger (so we can all write you back whe nyou visit our sites) go to your Dashboard. Click Edit Profile and then check "Show my Email Address" Now on the same page under the Identity section enter the email address you would like to use.

Hi Shelly! Thanks for linking up to our blog hop! I noticed when your page loaded you have two backgrounds. One loads briefly and then it is replaced with another.
It seems something is not right with your layout. The front layer is too large for the white background behind it. I'm sure you probably already know this. I'm sorry I can't help you with this problem.
I really like your little labels for your sidebars.
I'm glad you have your "about me" right up at the top.
I hope you've made some new freinds as you have mingled with our party-goers.
ps I have a great post going up tomorrow for new bloggers.

Hi Shelly, visiting from the blog hop...
I think your name and blog style is very playful, perfect for what you are doing here:) I agree with Gail about the white background... not sure how to fix that though. Also, could you make your photos larger in the body of your posts? I think that would be great! Your family is adorable and your kitty is scrumptious!

Hello my dear! Thank you for linking up and taking a is always so scary to try something new and I am thrilled that you were up for the challenge. I really think you have the foundation of a cute and adorable little world. My only gentle suggestion is to use a solid green as the wallpaper b/c the images amid the green take away from the beauty of the white layer with the pink tagging. I think if the background were a would provide an ease on the eyes and perfect that dainty sweet look you are going for. Granted this is my suggestion and this is your world so decorate as you please...but I invite you to lay with it or give it a trial and see how the change works for you. I am tweeking my header...we shall see. A blog is a work in progress...and trust me, you can always change it back. :) Hvae a great Sunday and I hope to see more of you in blog world.
