I saw my theme was the only one that didn't have it's own little thread and though it should be all alone and left out

Soft Blues mixed with cartoony elements make a really fun and extremely usable Guikit.

What's Included
- 4 Desktops
- Might Mouse Cursor Set
- 8 App skins including iTunes

Been using it since you first gave me a beta, up until last night when the SS 2.0 themes were put in the Downloads tab. Very enjoyable theme, great work.
click one

Any way to get the title bar text to show for iChat? I know it's hard with themes that have title bar elements, but I was just wondering...

Aside from that, sweet theme!

That I'm not sure I can fix, I had to make my metal windows bevels a certain way to achieve the look I have now. I could *try* but I doubt it'll get any better.

Well I just finally got around to trying this out I havn't been able to decide between Somatic and Label o's since the release of Shapeshifter 2.0 but it's a no contest now I'm sticking with Azure. From the preview pic it doesn't really look like the kind of theme I'd use but I decided to apply it anyway and believe me the preview doesn't do it justice excellent and usable theme mac15

Any chance of a list of app skins that have been added i'm far to lazy to go through my apps to see them and I noticed that it's becoming trend amongst themers to not say which app skins are provided but to just say the number and sometimes it's not that obvious.

Any chance we could get a menu variant in the 1.1 release? I love this theme, but the menu selection really bugs me. The gradient seems out of place when the rest of the theme is all about blue/white contrast.

Very nice. I wish there were some theme variants. A gray or black one one would be slick.

well im still getting 1.0.1 but I got 1.1 from interface lift. I think it has something to do with by isp being crap as often it takes them ages to refresh there servers and still see old webpages even though i know it's been updated. Sticking a ? after the url usually works but that can't be done with shapeshifters download panel.
