Can’t Decide What Camera Bag to Buy

If you have seen my Birthday Wish List that I have then perhaps you have read that camera bags are in my list. It’s there bec. I am also buying a new lens, if God permits next month and if that will happen the camera with the new lens will not fit the small Lowe Pro camera bag that I have right now. I am considering a Tracy Joy bag where a lot of my co-Bebots are using already, I still need to hear more reviews about this bag at least it is not expensive like Samsonite luggage hehe. Anyway, I am also eyeing Crumpler Bag, I saw the Crumpler Store in SM Megamall last year when I went there and the 5 million dollar bag is a bit big for my liking and it’s quite expensive too.

I also can consider another Lowe pro bag , much bigger of course bec. I know it is durable. Oh well, I think I will just wait for my new lens and then I will decide which one is the best for all my digital photography gadgets. This new hobby of mine is kinda expensive I can tell ya.

Freebies Alert:

Click Images to download at designer's blogs

After lunch time yesterday, before going to the mall, I found time to hunt for some digi freefies and here are my finds and I want to share it with you. Even though I have not been scrapping lately, I still hunt for freebies and download them of course. In the next month or so I know my hardrive will burst already since it is full of freebies and my other files. I really really wish I can get my hand on scrapping again as it gives difference pleasure once you finished a layout. I just envy my co-Bebots who really have insiprations to scrap.. Sigghhhh when will I ever scrap again that is the question. Anyway, before I will rant some more I need to find what is this Hydroxycut hardcore that I have been hearing.

:Litratong Pinoy: Liwanag

Ito ay kuha sa lumang bahay ng aking lola na namayapa na. Ginawa na itong bodega sa ngayon pero andyan parin yang tumba tumba na upuan na yan na inuupuan ng aking lolo at lola hanggang sila'y mamatay. Makikita nyo ang liwanag na gustong pumasok sa lumang bintana wari mo'y gustong bigyang buhay ang nalulungkot na silid.

Sumalik na kayo sa Litratong Pinoy. Meron pa kong lahok sa isa ko pang blog. Tignan nyo.

(This was taken at the old house of my deceased grandmother. It was already turned into a stock room already but you can still see the chair where my grandpa and granma used to sit until they died. You can see the beam of light that wanted to come inside the old window it seems it wantd to give life to the unhappy room.)

: My B-day Gadget Wish List :

My birthday is coming next month and I have been saving a lot by not going to shopping malls or shopping online like what my co- Bebots had done or buying digital kits lately (except for the 2 $1 each loot that I got 2 weeks ago)bec. I am saving to probably buy one or 2 on my wish list. I also like unlocked cell phones but that will have a time, I badly need a new lens and other stuff for my Rebel. Donations are very much welcome via my paypal hahaha.

On my list are:
1. Canon EFS 18-200mm IS lens (love the zoom range and the IS Image stabilizer feature)
2. Canon Speedlite Flash
3. Canon Wireless Remote Control
4. 5 Million Dollar Crumpler camera bag or Tracy Joy Bag

: Freebies: Alphas :

I was online since this morning trying to look for a baby bedding online when I decided to pass by Ikea Goddess and look for some juicy freebies that I can also share here. Anyway, what is digital scrapbooking when there are no alphas in it. Alphas add accent and interests in our layouts. I have created alphas before when I was still designing and it is always nice to give some to digi-scrappers once in a while. Here are some cool alphas for you all, click image to download at designer's blogs

: Moments :

I had fun taking photos of my niece Reign last week bec. she seldom pose for me on the camera. She was bubbly and very cooperative that day and what I did was to take lots of photos of her and I told her mom to have it printed and have it framed.

I love that Calachuchi flower (it was called Frangipani in Australia) that I put on her. Actually I just saw it on the road so I took it and put on my nieces' ear and right then and there she was posing non-stop on the cam. Hope she will be like that always so I can get lots of photos.

I just so love Pioneer Woman's BW action that I used here

Selective Coloring that I've done

: Purple Coulourz Designs :

My co-Bebot( Pinay Digiscrapper) JACQ is one of the newest designer at Pickle Berry Pop and we are very proud of her. I always admired her beautiful digital scrapbooking layouts of her daughter Iyah and I must say she is so passionate about this craft. She started sharing us her freebies then later on she announced to us that she is now designing. Right now her designs are on sale less 20% off the orig price. Her kits were all yummy and don't forget to view all the layouts that uses these kits bec. for sure you'll be inspired to do one of your own.

In the meantime, I will just be contented and have my eyes feast on yummy digi-scrapping kits being sold at Pickle Berry for I have not budget to buy kits at this time. Happy scrapping everyone, gotta go coz i need to finish and work and look into this las vegas strip map, shhhh I'm not going there, just need to research on this one for someone.

: Freebie Alert : Digi-Scrapping Kit

Hey, all how are you all today? It's a brand new week for all of us and I hope you are all still scrapping unlike me. I have been busy or should I say lazy to digital scrap lately bec. of the enormous online and offline works that I have. Just this morning, I was worried why is my net is not working so what I did was to trouble shoot the CAT5e cable of the network pc here in my net cafe. I am glad the connection only got loose so here I am freebie hunting again.

I want to share this freebie that I found over at KSKD Designs. One of the best part of digital scrapbooking aside from showing your creativity is that great designers are giving away their hard worked designs for us to use. You can download it at her blog by clicking the image above.

: I Got an Award:

Wow it's a brand new week for all of us, still no digi-scrapping layouts on my part but I know it will come in no time, I miss scrapping just in case you want to know but if you have multiple blogs like I have sometimes scrapping is put aside for a while to beat by deadline. What a busy life eh? Sometimes I just wish I can sit in one of those home theater seating at home, put my feet up, play a movie and eat a popcorn.. what a bliss!

Anyway, it's a good Monday morning for me bec. I got this award from Missie, Thanks for choosing my blog and I appreciate it.

The rules of the award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 6 other blogs.
4. Put the links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.

Now I want to give this award to Suzanne, Haze, Dianne, and my other co-Bebots (pinay digiscrappers.)

: Freebie Alert : Digi-Scrapping Kits and Papers by Diane

Click images to download at Dianeskie's Blog

A co-Bebot ( Pinay digi-scrapper) of mine, DIANE who is very good in making great layouts both on digital and paper digiscrapping has ventured into designing as well. And just take a look at the FREEBIES that she has they are all very nice. I have known Diane through our digital forum and she was really talented, she leaves near Mayon Volcano and her husband loves motobrikes, (i guess he might love to use used Harleys as well). I know Diane will make more digital kits for freebies in the future so we have to watch out for that.

: LP: My Computer

This is my HP Pavilion desktop computer which I bought last April 2007. What makes it more special to me is that this is the 1st thing that I purchased out of my blogging money. This is my baby, my companion all day long, and my partner in making some moolah. It doesn't give me headaches so far, the only concern that i have now is that I am losing disk space bec. of too much photos and digiscrapping files that I have right now.

Hmmm, I reckon if I have saved enough I also want to own an iMac that my sis JOYD has or If I can dream a little MacAir would be so cool, don't you think? Oh BTW, join as us LITRATONG PINOY!

(Ito ang aking HP Pavillion na kompyuter na nabili ko noong Abril ng 2007. Ito ay espesyal sa akin dahil ito ang kauna-unahang bagay na nabili ko gamit ang perang kinita ko sa blogging. Kulang nako sa space dahil madami ng litrato at pang scrap na kaka save dito. Sana sa susunod eh makabili naman ako ng iMac o kaya eh mac air.)
