Build a basic website/CSS grid.css Doesn't apply the margin 1000px auto to the whole page.

THe scope of the .container class in grid.css is only applying to the top half of my webpage and not the whole page. I checked to make sure each <div> tag had a closing tag and it does. Not sure why this is happening.

Hi, your first

</ul is not closed correctly </ul>.

Oh and also

<img src="img/you-bake-me-blush

is missing a " at the end.

Not sure if that is the problem, just noticed that and thought I would say.
