    It’s wonderful!! Love all the colors and shapes! I just wish this was a theme–even just temporarily! I’d change up my background–or use it for the holiday blog I’m getting ready to work on…maybe next year?

    That’s beautiful, but my mini laptop’s resolution is 1024×600. Are there WP’s wallpapers for netbook?

    • MNT

      The 1024×768 version should scale down just fine (in your desktop background preferences, choose to center the image instead of stretching or “fitting” it).
