Breathtaking Photography-Style Backgrounds

I am SO excited about this latest batch of FREE blog backgrounds! I found an absolutely wonderful place called Friendly Scrap with tons of free for personal use digital scrapbooking elements and papers, and I went to town designing backgrounds with them! (all the backgrounds in this post are designed using elements from Friendly Scrap).
These photography-style (with a transparent middle section) backgrounds are, granted, a little 'Spring-y'... but they were so pretty that I just couldn't wait until next year to share them with you! Lol! And I think you could get away with using some of them all year 'round. :)

For the sake of saving space, I have not posted previews of the three column versions of each background... the code is just underneath the 'standard' width code for each design. (They really look exactly like the standard width except the transparent middle section is just a little wider)

To use a free background, copy the code underneath the background of your choice and paste it into an HTML/javascript gadget on your blog sidebar. :) For more details (and how to install a background into a Picture Window template, see the installation instructions page.)

Thank you for the comment, Mikailah! I'm glad you liked the backgrounds.

Thanks! *takes a bow* ;) Lol!! I think "Breath of Spring" might be my favorite too.
You're very welcome, and I so appreciate your prayers as well - I was feeling much better today, enough that I could actually play Ultimate Frisbee, being careful to walk instead of run! :D Yay! I had a wonderful time. :D
