Well after a lot of searching on the web I finally found an awesome blog called Teresabelle Designs that gives you a detailed youtube video on how to create, save and load up your personalised blog background. I didn't realise you had to change the format of the image to a web based image as so many other tutorial videos just say to save it as a jpg file. Anyways here it is and I am pretty proud of my design, but Im thinking I might have to change the header, actually now that I think of it I might actually simplify the background again, lol! Now I have to design a post divider! 
Here's the final design...MY FIRST EVER BLOG BACKGROUND!(this is a momentous occasion I just had to share with you!)
Finally I was able to photograph the Italy LO. There are sooo many absolutely gorgeous Layouts in the Scrapboutique gallery at the mo all of which are full page projects so I decided to do a negative space one. Its one of two LO's I have done of our wedding day(gosh I so have to get that album organised), anyways here is the postcard I created as inspiration for Week 1 Destination Italy and my interpretation.
