Hi, everyone! Today I'm introducing one of my features, Snapshot Sunday. It's pretty self-explanitory and I thought it would be a good way for me to not only save snapshots of memories but also it gives me a chance to practice using different photo filters.

If I had to isolate one design element that I find to be the most inspiring (which is a heavy request!), my answer would have to be the color palette. I think the choice of color in any design can really make-it-or-break-it for the viewer. This can be tricky since... Continue reading
