LuLu's New Dress!

Many of my new readers have been enjoying my series of the modified 3 column Minima template I coded and am giving away under a CC 3.0.

It's basically just your normal 2 column minima with an extra side column.  There's one that's just perfect for free backgrounds by such fabulous designers as 1stFloorFlat, Itkupilli's Cute'n'Cool, the Background Fairy and more.  I call that model the "Skinny" because it's a slender one that fits the design specifications of most free backgrounds.

But I also developed templates with extra elbow room and I call them "Standard" and "Wide".  Think of them as ectomorphic, endomorphic and mesomorphic templates respectively.

I'm cross-posting this gorgeous Easter Bonnet/Vintage

Posting Transparent Images in Blogger (A Follow Up to 1stFloorFlat's Recent Blog Post)

But in designing darker Blogger templates I've noticed that the issue comes up where supposedly "transparent" items have a white background. In a recent blog post from Susie Jefferson of 1stFloorFlat she offers some quick and dirty work around solutions and it's worth checking it out over there.

I just wanted to take a moment to explain what is going on.
