I have already selected a theme from Woo Themes called "Canvas" Theme. It is a Wordpress.org theme/site that we are working with. Please go to http://www.woothemes.com/products/canvas to see the theme I want to use.
Most of what I have listed below can be easily done by clicking selections that are already in the admin panel of this theme. Meaning you do not need to write any code or do anything special. However, a couple things that you will have to write code for is the photo box collage and maybe the display of date feature that I want to add to this theme. This is spelled out below.
**I am looking for someone that has good experience with Wordpress.org, that communicates effectively, that knows how to code properly and stands behind their work. I'd like to build a relationship with you for all future work.
My Specs are below:
Design Specs for DiamondLeone.com Website/Blog
Logo and name spelled out in upper left corner. I already have logo, but I need your help to edit the Photoshop file and change the font my name is displayed in. I can send you this logo when your ready.
SIte width Flex slider containing 3 different pictures that can fade, tile, and loop
Menu bar displaying name of pages above slider:
Page names are - Home Page, About Page, Products Page, Chewy’s Corner Page
Below slider to the right will be social media buttons:FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, RSS, and email me
Main body of Blog: (This part will require special code)
Photo display box exactly like www.wendyslookbook.com. Please go to her site to see what I want. Be sure to pay close attention to how this photo box works.
Notice how she has the one large image followed by 4 thumbnails but shown in different versions.
Look 1 -The thumbnails are on the bottom of larger image box,
Look 2-Then on the right side of larger image box,
Look 3- Then on the left side of larger image box.
Look 4 - Then the one large image split into two, and thumbnails on bottom
I like all these different ways that she displays her pics. Need something like a template that makes it easy for me to upload the photos into this box.
I need exact functionality that she has with respect to this box and how it is working on her site. For example, when you click on any picture within the image box, it takes you to the page where she has the full posts with all the full sized pics and texts for that particular post. So organized and neat
I need call to action buttons at the end of every post that will allow reader to: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, RSS, or email me. Please put these at the bottom of every excerpt as well on front page where picture collage box is
Also, notice how from on the blog main page that you see a small excerpt of text explaining what that post is about. Makes you want to click on the link to read more.
At the beginning of every post, I’d like to have a fancy way of displaying the date for my post entries. Meaning, like a diamond shape with the date inside the geometric shape. Or something cool like that. I'm open to ideas. Do you have any samples I can choose from?
Also, please put some kind of thin line to differentiate one post from another. This will make site easy on the eyes.
**PLEASE NOTE: This photo box must be created some how by creating a special add on to the back end of my theme admin panel. Meaning I want the functionality of being able to click and select which layout of the photo box I want to use for each Blog post.
I need 3 widgets on left sidebar for the following:
Opt in box
4 Footer Widget areas for the following:

I’d like the overall background color of my site to be a very pale pink, but I’d like to have the option to change this to white if I don’t like the pink.
Please see my drawing in the attached file of how I want site laid out. Please note I didn't have enough room on paper to show footer area
