*Updated v4 - August 12th, 2010 - Added 200 pixels to the width of the design. It needed to breathe.
*Update v3 - Nov 26, 2008: I made some majors updates to this in the beginning of summer and I never uploaded the updated version until now. The organic materials are fresher and more balanced. Plus the trees on the sides look much more polished and less computer generated. I am happy with this final design.
*Update v2 - Added much more detail to the organic work and created a semi-live version with music, a preloader, and a little fading intro. Nothing special, just some eye/ear candy for those who want to understand the idea in my head a little better.

This is my tropical beach resort template. I really just did this for fun. I wanted to make something visually pleasing that had a simple look to it. Blue is for the ocean and the beach obviously, and the tan is for sand. I almost didn't include the organic work, but It felt like it made it more 'tropical' at first sight if there was some green on there. The header was a lot of fun, there is a subtle glossy bar behind it, and the navigation is sleek-ish with some water inside the current page's button. I started this whole design with the footer's glow and shadow corners, then I gave it color and it turned into this over time. I finished most of the design a while ago, but I had some time tonight and I finished it up.
+favs & comments are greatly appreciated.
