Ooh, I have a pretty new banner somewhere *Oh, it's on MNFF* that has eyes watching someone...It's kind of cool, . Yeah, I've been practincing on the whole concentrating on one thing. My big toughy really is backgrounds. I never know what to use in the backgrounds! . o.0 Rush! Yeah, some of them took a few minuts, but believe it or not, it can take me hours just to get something I like on Word! . Anyway, here is a nice new banner that is GIMP/Photobucket made:
