|Hi, Dante! %Thanks for providing the link to your sister's page.
The code is the same for those containers on both of your pages; only the URL for the image is different. And it's doing exactly what it should be doing.
The problem is that you are using a huge image for a small space. The code does not include any positioning properties, so the space is filled, by default, from the upper left corner of the image.
If you compare what you see in the Stats and Gift boxes with what you see in the upper left corner of the page (and of the image alone), you'll see that they are the same.
Those boxes on your page look better because that portion of your background image just happens to be better suited for that small space.
For both pages, you should use an image that is better sized for those smaller boxes. Find an appropriately-sized area in that large image that you like, and crop off the rest. Save it with a new name, upload it to wherever you store your images, and use that URL for the Stats and Gift boxes. You don't want to make it too small, because those containers will grow according to whatever is in them at the time. But using such a large image not only makes it look odd, as you noted, but also means that it slows down the loading of your page for something that doesn't even show up.
Your code - for both pages - is fine! You just need a smaller image.
