Penny Lane Designs Blog Makeover Giveaway {March 1 - March 8}

Spring is right around the corner, I promise. Do you need to do a little spring cleaning?
How about a little blog sprucing up? Need something new a fresh to start the spring?
Then this giveaway is for you!

"Hi there! I'm Marina the owner and designer of Penny Lane Designs. I started PLD when I realized I had a passion for design and a knack for geeky technology stuff (like learning html) and combining the two to make something pretty. As a kid I was always the 'creative' type and I also spent a fair amount of time on the computer, so I suppose this little business was my destiny. ;) I strive to make sure that all of my designs are unique, clean and polished, and not something that you would find anywhere else. You can view tons of examples of my designs here. I truly enjoy every minute of my job and love working with so many different people!

When I am not busy on my computer, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 7 month old little boy, Owen, and also with friends and family.

I was excited when Amy contacted me about participating in this giveaway and I am looking forward to working with one lucky blogger! Good luck everyone!"












































How sweet is Marina, you know you want to work with her.
Well TWO, thats right TWO lucky followers get a blog makeover from Penny Lane Designs!

One follower will receive a pre-design makeover.

The other will get a customer makeover:
Custom Header and Background
6 Sidebar Titles
Post Signature

How exciting is that?!

To enter this giveaway you MUST be a follower of my blog.

To enter {please make sure to leave a separate comment for EACH entry}:
1. Follow my blog and go to Penny Lane Designs to check things out.
2. Follow Marina on her blog and leave her some blog love!

Spring is such a great time of year! What I love most about the spring is seeing the bluebonnets and wild flowers spring up on the side of the road. When I see those flowers it makes me feel like a kid on christmas morning. There is something nostalgic about the bluebonnet and wild flowers. It reminds me everyday that I am a Texas girl at heart. yay for spring!
