Blog Makeover- Vampire Heart

I thought the blog could use a little change again,
since I've had the other look for so long.
As sexified as the other look was,
the blog really needed a change.

I used my kit- Vampire Heart for this make-over.

Of course, per the 'norm' for me, I kept Ville Valo on my header. 
He just has to be up there at the top. =P

Thank you for stopping by. =)
