Wow - looking good so far - I'm not a website techy so can't offer much help.

After a very quick run through I found one small mistake on the 'Acts' page - second item '...the awkwardness in...' should it be 'the awkwardness is'?

Look forward to seeing the finished article

Its looking good to me! A few of the passages didn't quite scan so might be worth looking at for re phrasing.

When I clicked on the valentine link it took me back to christmas - and some of the other links didn't appear to be working - is this just as they aren't finished?

Other little things I noticed are the spelling of marquee - spelt marque

Under acts you had Balloonatic's - with an apostrophe - this happens a couple of times and I don't think it should be there.

There was a phrase that read "awkwardness in thick" which made no sense - can't quite remember where it was.

At one point it said "learn to make a crazy balloon hats" so hats needs to be singular or leave it as a plural and take the "a" away.

And finally... under the Christmas section totally was spelt "totaly"

Hope this is useful!

thanks guys will make changes when i get home. I am a creative bunny and you get engrossed on the look of a page not the finer details so having people notice spelling mistakes and correcting gramma is excellent. A fresh pair of eye's. I love this forum.. Please keep em coming...

christmas and valentines need work! I am aware of that one!

When I clicked on your link to have a look around I then couldn't click back to balloon chat as your site kept coming back up. I had to log off the internet & re-connect. I have been on a few sites that lock you to them and am not a fan of them.
Not sure if this was just me as I looked through my lap top at your site, will have another browse when I get home.

Hi Site looks good, but there are a few things you might not be aware of.

1) The navigation links appear to be out of place.

One the Who We Are page, you have to click on the text to move between pages, or for the 'mouseover event' to take place (Image swap in your case). Yet on the other pages the mouseover event only appears to work approx 3-5mm under the text. It took me a while to catch on to this and i originally thought the navigation links werent 'live'.

2) Your page names.

You have used CAPS for each individual page name, apparently this is considered bad for certain browsers (I checked in IE, and Firefox with no problems, but just passing on what i have been told).

And you appear to have used spaces between words 'Who We Are' , 'Contact Us' these spaces are making your urls untidy as they can not use spaces and therefore replace the space with %20
It may be worth either removing the spaces in the file name, of using an underscore '_' between words.

Hope this helps

Pete
