Excuse Me, I'm Fancy - Blogger Template

(click image above for a live preview)


Why not edit the header image and get something a bit spiffier?

I have included the blank .jpg image in the zipped folder so you can add your own title/description in whatever font you like.

  1. Open the header image in your graphics program*. Add your own header title text/description. Save this image.

    I came up with this:

  2. Go to LAYOUT > PAGE ELEMENTS and click "Edit" in the header area. You are basically going to tell the blog to show this new image in stead of your boring old plain text header! Click image below for a grab on what to click:
