When Kendra from The Adventures of the Headless Family originally contacted me about doing her blog, she told me she liked the idea of a very simple layout with a photo in the header and gave me two blogs that she liked as a reference. When I asked her to pick out a few stock photos for me to choose from, one of the ones that really stood out for me was the hand with the heart for some reason.
I liked the idea of incorporating it somehow, but wasn't too hopeful, since she had said she wanted something basic. During our discussion, she told me that she really loved the hand and that anyone that knew her knew it would have significance, because she collects them!

Other times, it is nothing like what they originally wanted, but they love it nonetheless, which is what happened here. She was thrilled with the outcome - it's fun and colorful and has personal meaning...something I think is important, because you've got to look at it every day. :) Here's the outcome:
