Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #107

Welcome to the the Dishing It & Digging It Link Party.

Each week we all work to share, comment and enjoy your creativity. 

This week has been hectic!  I really didn't have time to write and share a new post.  Busy as ever creating new looks and tweaking some blogs.  Sheila from My Kentucky living Blog decided to go for a new modern template.  She loves traditional, but also contemporary style.
I hope you visit Sheila and check out her new digs.

I also did some work for Laura, from White Spray Paint Blog.
She has some tweaks she wanted done.  I shared with her how to use The Recipe Wiz, a site you can type in your recipes and you get the html code to add it to your blog post html area.  It is a tidy box for your recipes with a print button.
Here's a sample of one of her recipes.  A decorative border was added to her template coding.

I am happy to say, I will be finished in another week. In the meantime, here are a couple of the projects I have been working on.
