A big thank you to AnneGaleDesign.com, and Miss Anne Gale for the awesome background image, and footer image for this site. With the color scheme of the new graphics, I can see there needs to be some additional thought into text font and color for the rest of the site. Right now, text is still the default that came with the Expedia Travel theme. The new graphics are definately not the default Expedia Travel theme.
My next challenge is going to be providing literary appeal to match the graphic appeal of the site. Anne has set the bar pretty high.
