Simply Fabulous Giveaway {CLOSED}


I love blogging! To me it is almost like a journal. I blog about the latest memory created, recipes, funny thoughts, family, work….really anything that is on my mind. When I first started, I wanted a blog that was really cute and attractive. I spent HOURS going from site to site trying to find a decent looking template. I settled for something that was just okay. A few months later I found one that I liked better and switched backgrounds but it still wasn’t what I really had in mind. It was cute…I just wanted more. I wanted it to look like so many of the other cute blogs I saw. I literally spent hours trying to figure out how to do little extra things to spice it up.

Lena Toews, founder of Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates, also struggled trying to find quality templates. So she started making templates in her free time. Her goal is to create beautiful, stylish, and functional templates for others in the blogosphere. All of her designs are FREE and given under the Creative Commons Attribution- Noncommercial Canada License. Look at some of her fabulous templates!image
