SALLYO'S BACKGROUNDS. (updatedAugust 3rd, 2003.)


I have created some jpegs to use as backgrounds. If you would like to use any, you are welcome to "collect" them by right clicking and saving them to your hard drive. An acknowledgement and link would be appreciated. To see the backgrounds, click on the title links.
