    For this daily create we needed to take a photo outside our window. This wasn’t fun since we’ve been having lots of rain, so outside my window wasn’t very pretty. I actually was surprised at how clear this photo was since it was shot through a window!

    For this daily create, we needed to combine 2 logos. I love Mexican food, and so choosing between Qdoba and Chipotle is always a hard decision for me. I just inserted the Chipotle logo underneath the Qdoba logo, and cut out the part that said “Mexican Grill”.

    Today, we had to add something new into an old picture for our daily create. I was thinking of technology and something that definitely “juxtaposes” the older days. A selfie stick helps people with phones take selfies with only a push of a button on an extended rod.
