Lots of you have asked how I did my menu and where I got my background. I used a lot of resources to do all of the little things that made my template look like it does. I have decided to put as many as I can remember here so you can play with your template, too.
My background and my logo are my own design. I used the Pea SDflenner and Pea Bethany's Doodles fonts for my menu graphics. My writing isn't as neat as the font I used:
My real handwriting probably shows I am a serial bitcher.
To get my menu to act like it does takes CSS. I used this tutorial at BlogU. I also used a BUNCH of the tutorials at Blogger Buster. I hope this helps! I know there are a lot of things I did to tweak my template, but I really don't know if anyone cares! Please feel free to ask.
