I miss Digi-Scrapping

... ....badly! The last full digital scrapbooking layout that I made was in July 2008 but I was able to make a digi layout for my niece's 18th b-day tarpaulin. My co-bebots are talking about scrapping over at Twitter and just today I they insipired me because of the hard bound photobook that they ordered over at Artscow.

I hope one day I can finish my Australian vacation layouts so I can have them printed. I can't beleive that it as so cheap to have it printed over at Artscow. I am so happy I have found friends through digital scrapbooking, gosh my co-Bebots (as we call each other) are so very generous in sharing tips on where to have our layouts printed at a much cheaper price. Hmm i need to gear up myself soon so I can finish a 20 pages photobook for myself.

Digital Scrapbooking is so much fun, if you haven't tried it yet you've got to. You just need to be patient in order to finish a layout that usually takes hours. If you are not patient, forget it haha.

You can see some of my digi - layouts here and here is my SCRAPS & SHOTS blog, there are some freebies there.

Wow, Christmas is just few more days and have your started your Christmas shopping? Me, I will shop by next week and hopefully it will not be that hard yet. I still have to think about what to buy for bro, a long sleeve perhaps? Hmm I'll still think about that. I have started my list already last weekend and hopefully finish it this week. Yay I'm excited now.

Such a Bookworm

I dunno but I have no passion for reading books that is why those that love reading are envied by me. I have a friend that can read a book in just one sitting esp. if she likes the story of it and I consider her to be a wide reader. This Christmas I know I will not have a hard thinking what to give her bec. I know this she will love this " A New Earth, Awakening to Your Life's Purpose" by Eckhart Tolle. Yay, I hope she will not read this or else it’s not a surprise anymore. I hope I get a photography book too, would love to have the "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson. Anyone wants to give me this? Wink.

My New Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6

Ok i have been saving a lot these past few days bec. I really wanted to buy a new lens for my camera. Finally, yesterday I went to Quaipo trying to be careful bec. of the cash I am carrying and went to the camera shops to look for the lens that i wanted but not every store has it since it was just recently released by Canon.

It was at HENRY's in Hidalgo, Quiapo (where i also bought my camera) where I bought my Canon EFS 18-200mm IS (image stabilizer) lens /f 3.5-5.6. I am trying to haggle for the price but my charm didn't work haha, they said that price is like that which I agree. Anyway, I bought it since I really wanted the focal range of it and this is the b-day gift for myself.

O talagang siningit ko pa mukha ko haha.
I was really overwhelmed with how big the lens is, imagine I was just using my 50mm 1.8 lens then shifted with a bigger lens. Wow, it was a bit heavy coz I got small hands but I know I will get used to it in no time.

I tested this morning and Here are
Sample shots.

@18mm ---------------@55mm

@135mm -------------------@200mm

I love the focal range of this new lens of mine but still I love my nifty fifty 50mm more bec. of the 1.8 aperture of it. Oh well, i got a new baby again and gosh I got a hole in my pocket now. pweeeh..

Freebies Alert:: Christmas Kit

I went shopping last Sunday to buy new decors for our small Christmas Tree and I had fun putting up the tree and decorating it last night. My color theme for this year is orange with touch of gold.

Anyway, Diane a co-digiscrapper of mine alerted us with this very pretty kit Holiday Spirit by Lisa Whitney. When I saw it I could not resist not to download it. It may seem early but at least we'll have kits to use when we scrap our Christmas photos. Download it at LISA WHITNEY's blog and don't forget to say thank you!

Random Photos To Share


paper boat

Just wanted to share some random photos that I have posted on my other blogs. As you all know, I am planning to buy a new lens this month (a b-day gift for myself) hoping to have a nice wide and zoom lens for my cam. I have been using my 50mm1.8 lens all the time and sometimes I need a wider lens so I thought I needed a new one. At first I wanted to buy a watch (yes again!) like those Festina watches but I will put that aside for now so I can buy a new Canon 18-200mmIS lens just in time for my b-day on Sunday. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one. Will let you all know once i bought my dream lens already.

Hello digi-scrappers, have you shopped last Digital Scrapbooking Day? For sure some of you have filled their shopping carts with tons of digi kits bec. most of the shops has 50% off their kits which is much awaited by digi scrappers. I wanted to buy something at Catscrap but oh my goodness their site crashed bec. for sure there are lots of shoppers wanted to access their site at the same time.

Too bad I wasn't able to buy anything, I was just contented on "window shopping" for kits. It's a shame I didn't buy anything but there's always a next year. Right now, I also don't have any time to scrap, i have tons of pictures that are waiting to be scrapped but with my online duties, it's hard to concentrate on that. The pictures on my DSLR needs to be moved to my hard drive as well, but I'm too lazy to do that right now, if only movers New York can do that for me then I'll be so happy. I also have a contest goin on my other blog so that keeps me busy this days. See y'all..
