Giveaway - Blog Design From Adori Graphics

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.





I am very excited to be giving away TWO Budget Blog Makeovers by my friend Louise at Adori Graphics. 

Louise is a talented graphic designer who creates most of the vector graphics that she uses on her blog designs, digital scrapbooking kits and stationary. And, she writes wonderful tutorials to help bloggers improve their own blogs, offers free backgrounds, templates and more. I truly think she is one of the most kind and gracious bloggers/designers out there. 

Two lucky entries to this giveaway will receive Louise's Budget Blog Makeover, which includes:
  • a plain colour background of their choice (they can select a colour from Colorcombos or Kuler)
  • a border in a colour of their choice
  • a header made from a photograph, or number of photographs OR they can supply me with a vector graphic or other image stock. Image stock is available from I-Stockphoto, Vectorstock, Shutterstock and more.
The winners need to contact Louise within three weeks to claim their prize (but sooner is better), after which their prize is void.

To enter simply leave a comment telling me how many blogs are in your blog reader (guess if you don't know for sure - see my count at the bottom). You may earn extra entries by leaving additional comments after doing one or more of the following:
  1. Follow Louise on Twitter (you'll get heads up on new products, freebies and more)
  2. Become a follower/subscriber at Adori Graphics
  3. Become a follower/subscriber here at BBD
Give away will end May 18th at 9:00 PM EST. Winners will be notified by email, so make sure I can reach you via the email on your profile, of leave it with your comment if it's not on your profile (which it should be, hint, hint).

The giveaway has been going on a few days and I'm really enjoying seeing how many blogs y'all follow. So far I have you all beat though - I follow 251 blogs! Yikes!! LOL No, really, there are that many because when I first started BBD I followed all the designers on my lists so I would know when they were having giveaways and could alert my readers to them. Well, too many designers on the list now and for some reason I can't get them to delete off my Google reader. I'm about ready to junk it and start fresh.

The Giveaway Results:
The winning numbers were 23 and 6. The bloggers who made those particular comments were Cheryl from Tidymom and SueAnn from SueAnn's Journey. I am tickled pink for SueAnn,  because she has been a long time follower of BBD and always leaves me sweet comments! 

Congratulations, Cheryl and SueAnn! I can't wait to see what Louise creates for you both.

Already following your blog. Will add Louise and Adori to make 59.

I have been thinking of trying a new blog design...played with some templates...but haven't been able to make a decision. I have a dark backdrop, which I like, but have learned that some people have a difficult time reading it.
