Warning!  Danger Will Robinson, Danger! "Crackle Popz" has not only been specifically designed for use on a 1024X768 screen (i.e. it will not work at all on any other screen resolution!), it's frames are also largely "experimental", and it uses tables to keep the text neatly in the middle, where it belongs.

Please do not right click on these images and the wallpaper to download - you will notice (I hope) that the top frame is not a repeating pattern, and this is where my "experimentation" came in.  Now, I could have loaded the top pattern in as one very large gif file, but it would have taken ages to load.  Or, I could have chopped the graphic up and put it in a table... but not all browsers display tables and their contents the same way (not looking at Opera, of course!).  Dilemma. I decided to be innovative, and have indeed chopped up the graphic... and put each segment into a frame of its own.  There are five frames across the top, and two tiles down the side (as well as the one in the middle that this text is on)  So if you think you can "right click and save as" on the individual graphics, you may very well not get all the pieces.  I strongly suggest that if you're interested in using this set, download the entire set in a zipped file from the bottom of the page.

As you may have noticed, this is a "Frames" set.   "Why use frames?", you may ask.  Frames keep page loading time down to a minimum - once the frameset has been downloaded to a browser, it stays there as visitors view your site.   Instead of a new page of graphics having to be downloaded or updated all the time, only the middle or bottom part of the page needs to change, thereby saving time and bandwidth.

Crackle Popz... sort of like a mixed berry milkshake, only cruncheee.  Well, we call the breakfast cereal this set was named for "Rice Bubbles" over here in Australia, but that's just what these.... ahhh... "things" reminded me of (only pinky-purple, not pale cream coloured like the cereal), so that's what I called it... The welcome mat can either be aligned to the side (as above) or centrally (see below) - your choice.

These graphics form a set - they were created for and on this background.   Try to use the individual graphics on any other background and I think you'll wish you hadn't!  You are under no obligation to link back to Digital Tapestries if you use this set, however If you do wish to let people know where you got it, you can use the little matching logo included with the buttons below

And now, here's the full set for you!

Sorry, there's no blank button with this set - what you see is what you get, however you may like the font used on the buttons and welcome mat.   It's called Fortunaschwein, and I suggest you do a search for it with either Google or Metacrawler if you'd like to use it yourselves.
