Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to
give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
Such great ideas! Totally fun for the big game! Also thanks for your comment on my Charlie Brown Bench, I loved your tutorial, believe me I am going to try it again on the right kind of surface this time, I think it is genius!
