: LP: White Haven Beach

I consider this the best vacation I ever had this year when we went off to Hamilton Island (Aus.) for a week with my sister and her family. I never have imagined I will be there bec. the trip was expensive considering the places that we have been too.

Anyway, from Hamilton Island we went to WHITE HAVEN Beach and boarded a ferry. The beach was amazing and the sand is so fine like powder.

(Ito na ang pinakamemorableng bakasyon ko ngayong taon na ito nung pumunta kami sa Hamilton Island kasama ko ang kapatid ko at ang kanyang pamilya. Hindi ko inisip na makakapunta ako dito kasi sa mahal ng bayad. Galing Hamilton eh sumakay kami ng ferry papuntang White Haven Beach. Napakaganda ng beach, ang sand ay parang pulbos.)

: What Scrapbooking Item Are You? :

Thanks Mich for this!

You are PAPER!
You are an all natural basic person who likes to act as a foundation to others. You are willing to take a backseat in most of your relationships and let others take the spotlight, while you show your support and help them shine! Underneath it all, you are the one who makes it all happen. You are the focus and stability in any group, even if you are not the leader. Others look to you to set the pace and provide ideas for ways to get things done. But Paper Beware - sometimes you get a little edgy with the people who look to you for support and can give them some papercut remarks that can hurt their feelings. Remember to watch what you say, because you are best when leading by example.

Take the quiz here. Then, add your site where you posted this quiz and the scrapbooking item that describes you.

: Just Play :

I have been trying to improve my shadowing on my digi layouts and I am quite happy with this layout that I made. I also love those beautiful flowers that i bought from Natali Braxton when it was on sale few weeks ago. I can use it over and over again. I also enjoyed the extraction on my niece's photo and I love how it turned out.

: Spreading Creativity :

Got this from Cathy, while I was browsing and trying to drop Entercards.

My Story: We are actually family of artists, my 2 brothers are visual artists and they participated and won in some national arts competitions. Their creativity was passed on to their kids, so I have nephews and nieces who also great in drawings and digital art. I on the other hand loves to do digital scrapbooking and digi photography. I started scrapbooking about 3 years ago and still do it right now, the photography is just recently when I had a digital camera. I also tried my hand in crosstitching way back in mid 90's.

{start copying here}

1. Copy the graphics designed by Cathy and then tell us your story about how you came to start designing. It doesn't matter if it's "for your eyes only" or you are designing for somebody.
2. Come back here and leave your link where you posted the story. I will add your blogs to the master list. If you have more than 1 blog you need to post the tag to your other blogs as well.
3. Passed it to people you know who makes beautiful crafts.
4. Make sure that you come back here to get the updated list of bloggers who joined the tag. This is a good way to increase our rankings on Technorati at the same time we get to read great stories.

So let's start spreading those creativity.

1. Anything and Everything in Between 2. Designs By Vhiel 3. Vhiel's Corner 4. Can of Thoughts 5. Digital Scrapbooking Creations 6. Me and My World 7. A Slice of Life 8. Jenny Said So 9. YOU ARE NEXT.......

I want to pass this to my co-digiscrappers : DIANE, MICH, NITA, CHIKAI, BUGE, AGGIE, TEYS, and YOU!

: Finally I Have Decided....:

After thinking for a couple of hours, I finally decided that this blog will now be my DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY Plus. I will put some of my recent layouts and shots here plus sometimes I will put tips or who knows even a tutorial here. I will also abandon my old scrapping blog which I have not updated for 4 months already. So watch out for my layouts, digi-freebies and lots lots more !!

: Deep Thinking :

I am in limbo right now bec. i have not yet decided on what niche do I really want in this new blog of mine. I already have a personal blog (A SLICE OF LIFE), fashion/shopping blog (THIS AND THAT) and a digital scrapbooking blog, which is only a blogspot hosted one and I have not updated it since March. I wanted to revive it by buying it a domain but with multiple blogs I already have now, I don't think I can handle updating all of them. Ahhh it's fun to have many blogs but sometimes it is also tiring.

Right now I am still thinking if I will make this my Hobbies blog for my digital scrapbooking and photography hobby plus.. Hmmmmm think think.. think... I hope I can make up my mind asap!

; The Power of Prayer :

We all know that not all bodies at the sunken MV princess has been recovered yet so let us all join in this prayer. Alpha gave me this tag too. Thanks.

Prayer for the MV Princess of the stars fatalities and survivors.

Dear God, we pray that you comfort each bereaved family everyday as they grieved for their loss, we pray that you will supply all their needs, we pray for the survivors that they may have a good life after the tragedy, that you will bless them and let them know in the deepest part of their heart that in spite of what have happened, you LOVE and CARE for them. This we pray in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen. I encourage everyone to keep the prayer going. LET’S P.U.S.H. (PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS).

: Exhausted :

That is what I felt last night after coming home from work. I got pretty busy since morning with my offline works plus of course i need to do my online work as well. It can be pretty exhausting but I am also happy that I am busy and earning. I also had time to make a new header and change the color scheme of this blog and I am already contented with it bec. it is not sad anymore. I also dropped some Entercard before I went home and that is a tasking as well. I am hoping also that google can give me a page rank now eventhough this blog is only 3 months old hehe. Maybe they are generous eh ..

: Photohunt:: What isThat? :

If you are not a Filipino then probably you do not know what are these. Ok We Pinoys love that cooked BAGOONG (Shrimp Paste) so much that we can eat it with just about anything. It may look gross and smell bad or pungent esp. for foreigners hehehe but gosh it is the best and tastes oh so good. I like it a bit sweet and spicy.. Yum Yum..

And that fruit is what we call SANTOL, and it is actually in season right now. You can eat it with salt or with that shrimp paste and you can have it for lunch if you want to. Ok I think I am making you hungry right now so i guess you can check my other entry, i'll bet you'll get hungrier!! hehe

Happy Weekend and Happy Hunting !! Join us at Photohunt

: Noisy Frogs ! :

It was raining the whole day yesterday and when I got home I was greeted with croaks of frogs in our streets. Such a loud sound indeed. When I got home i heard more noises bec. there is a vacant lot beside and at the back of our house. And oh my goodness, those toads were really noisy and they even sound like a cow !!! And before i go to sleep they are the ones that I am hearing as if I have soemone beside me who is snoring lol..

I was so curious why frogs croak so I googled it this morning. The result told me that they croak esp. when it is raining bec. it is their mating season and they wanted to attract female frogs. Wow, they are singing like there is a choir lol. All I can say is that they are annoying and noisy lol!

: Saving Money :

Oh yeah I am saving money for the rainy days hehehe. Actually I have noticed lately that I have been so kuripot and really don't want to go to the malls bec. I am afraid that I will buy something that I really don't need anyway. I know myself bec. sometimes I am an impulsive buyer especially if things that I like is on sale. I don't care sometimes if I really need that, but things has changed right now since I know that I am not earning much this days like last year.

Actually I am saving saving and saving because I have a project that I really wanted to buy before the year ends and that is non other than a canon lens.. hahaha I know it is not that important but hey i work hard so I need a little gift for myself.. I am keeping my fingers crossed so that I can buy it this year yay!!!

: Digi- photos :

I have been shooting photos lately to practice my skills. I am just new to digital photography so I need to get the hang of it 1st and study my DSLR cam. I still need to practice my settings but in fairness I got away from the auto mode and now I am using manual mode or p modes most of the times.

I also have my nifty fifty (50mm 1.8 lens) so i need to use my camera more so it will be put in good use hehe. I still need to get another new lens the 28-135 mm lens this year and i will be a happy novice photographer wannabe already. You can see some of my shots on my flickr photo gallery. Enjoy!

: Scrapping Away:

My mojo finally returned so I was able to digi-scrap again after 6 months of not doing so. At first I was so slow and didn't know what to do and what layout should I do but when I got the hang of it again, I am unstoppable. Actually I have made about 6 or more layouts for the last month and I am so happy about it. You can see my digital scrapbooking layouts at my Flickr gallery. Comments are welcome and very much appreciated.

: Slow :

Things are pretty slow for me these days. I blame it on the lack of PR on my domain blogs, that resulted on few blog opportunities for reviews. I am just lucky the my other bravejournal blog has pr2 still. I also am busy updating my other blogs that is why I don't have many updates here. Just in case you want to be updated you can check out my other blog.
