      <h1>The verdict is in. CSS Layout is great!</h1>
      <p>I’ve been working with CSS for a while now, and I have to say, it’s pretty awesome. I love being able to separate content from presentation, and to keep all my styles in an external stylesheet.</p>
      <p>I’ve had a pretty good grasp on the basics for a while now, but I needed to learn more about how to control layout with my CSS. Understanding CSS layout meant first exploring the parts of the CSS box model.</p>

      <h2>The CSS Box Model</h2>
      <p>There are lots of great resources online to help you learn the CSS Box Model. I like the CSS Tricks article <a href="https://css-tricks.com/the-css-box-model/" target="_blank">The CSS Box Model</a> by Chris Coyier. To quote the author:</p>
      <blockquote>At the risk of over-repeating myself: <strong>every element in web design is a rectangular box.</strong></blockquote>
      <p>That’s right! Every HTML element is considered by the browser to be a rectangular box.</p>
      <p>The CSS Box Model consists of four properties: content, padding, border, and margin. I've included a graphic from Coyier’s article to illustrate this principle.</p>
      <p class="clear">It’s pretty easy to understand the Content portion of the box model. The content is whatever your HTML consists of. It could be a paragraph full of text, or a bulleted list, or an image.</p>
      <p>Beginning developers may have some trouble keeping the other parts of the box model straight, so let’s examine them one by one.</p>

Hi, Larissa Ragland! I see the missing closing curly brace :smiley:

You wrote:

@media (min-width: 421px) { /* this opens the first media query */
header { /* this opens the header */
    background-color: #294969;
    color: ghostwhite;
  } /* this closes the header */

But there's a closing curly brace missing between the closing curly brace for the header and the beginning of the next media query. There's no closing curly brace to end the first media query.

@media (min-width: 421px) { /* this opens the first media query */
header { /* this opens the header */
    background-color: #294969;
    color: ghostwhite;
  } /* this closes the header */
} /* added this - this closes the first media query */

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
