*sheepish* I knew I'd forgotten something! Thanks for the note about it. All fixed now! :D

And thanks for the extension on the challenge -- I was having an issue with photobucket last night so now I have a chance to update a couple images in the code.
Very nice.
Thank you! Glad you liked it!
this is very lovely.
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!
this is very lovely.
*mems*
Thank you very much! I'm pleased to hear you liked it!
I love it in general, but it would help a lot for me if the main column was wider. The status quo is really bad for nested comments in my journal.
Ooo, thank you for mentioning about the nested comments. I don't have designed comment pages on my own journal, so I don't always have the best feel for how they work. I'm definitely going to have to keep this -- widening the main column -- in mind for my next layout.
Thank you very much! Glad you liked it!
this is gorgeous, using the blue one now!
Thank you! I'm pleased to hear you liked it!
lovely, gorgeous
Thank you!
Absolutely beautiful!
Thank you!

(Also, much love for your icon!)
Thanks it looks very beautiful...
Thank you! Glad you liked it!
So pretty! I'm using the... uh... aqua & green, I think. I tested them both, but I'm pretty sure I stuck with the aqua & green (my memory is short these days, LOL).
*g* Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked the layout!
Apologies for the delay in replying. I'm glad to hear you liked the layout. As of right now I don't believe it works at Dreamwidth. There may be some way to use it there with custom layers and such, but I'm afraid that is all a bit beyond me. :-(

Thanks for asking after the layout in relation to DW, though. I am trying to contribute a few styles over there as time allows and, if there's interest in this one, I may be able to adapt it for use.
This is lovely!
Thank you very much! I'm please to hear that you liked it!
I grabbed the rose layout - it's so beautiful!
I tried uploading all of the images to my own photobucket acct, and then replacing the URLs in the code...but it messed up and looked terrible, all squished together and small and wonky.
*puts on dunce cap* Obviously I have no idea what I'm doing but I will keep trying. :-D
Thanks!
Thank you! I'm pleased to hear you liked the rose layout.

And thank you for trying to upload the images to your photobucket. (I do appreciate the attempt!) The only suggestion I can make, is to click "more options" (in the upload box) and make sure it is set to the "1 megabyte file size" option. Sometimes that helps people with the uploading!

*hugs*
I love this- I applied the rosy one to my journal and I'm really excited about it. But, frustratingly, the beige of the images in the navigation column and the beige of actual background color do not match, manifesting, respectively, as "ccbd48" and "d3c666". D: Would this be caused by my browser (safari 4, firefox 3)? Or something else? Please help me. *sniffle*
