My Hubby is turning 60!

Myy husband's birthday is on Sunday! I started buying ingredients for my menu. Luckily I won't be doing all the cooking. Thanks to my sisters-in-law especially Dutchie and Melende! They were the one's who volunteered to help. Dutchie will bake my 2 layer chocolate cake and I will do the icing and the decorating. She will also cook the "Palabok" (a filipino noddle dish) and the Native chicken Tinola (a soup out of native chicken, ginger, onions, tomatoes, and malunggay leaves, sorry i don't know if there is an english term for that...hihihi) . I will make pork menudo, and baked fish. I hope shrimps will be cheap in the market on Sunday so I can have lots of them. I love shrimps! And of course, my favorite fruit salad. Oh! And advance thanks to my niece Marissa cuz she will be bring some empanadas! Well, I will of course give my thanks to those who will bring something for dad. HAHAHA!

The party will be lunchtime but i'm sure it will continue till dinnertime. That usually happens everytime there's a family gathering. I hope the food will last though. HAHAHA! If not, the cooking continues.

It is just so unfortunate that my daughter Edrica will again be absent cuz she's in Maryland. Edrie Girl thanks for the contribution for your dad's bday! Hehehe! And of course, thanks a lot for my new cam. I will surely be taking so many pictures.

Oh dear! Jimboy and Crissy (my babies in Cebu City) will also be absent cuz they can't get out of their work to come home for a while. Huhuhu! I wonder what their good news is. They said they will say it on dad's bday. Hmmm. Maybe it's my son's promotion? his trip to China? or perhaps he got an increase? Will tell you all about it next time. HAHAHA! On second thought, my daughter Crissy loves surprising us. Who knows? Maybe they'll be here.

And finally, my Family Slideshow will be shown too. After working on it for almost 5 months; editing it 4 times and wasting 7 dvds , it's finally finished. I just hope they won't get tired watching my 45 minute slideshow. Hihihi!

This is long huh. Bye for now! God bless you all!

My first Freebie

April 10,2008

Hello to my fellow digiscrappers! I made this blog for you especially for members of digiscrapdepot.com .

Thank you Vicky for advising me to make my own blog so i can contribute something to the group. Well, I am not an expert designer but i love playing with Adobe Photoshop so I might as well create something and share them. In the first place, I have been grabbing freebies of other members for quite sometime. I guess this is one way of thanking all of them.

HOnestly, I won't be able to create my freebies again cuz as i have said, i am just playing around with Adobe CS2 tools. The gradients, textures, layer modes etc. Hahahaha!

To all the designers and members of digiscrapdepot, thank you so much for giving us a lot of your beautiful designs. They really help me a lot in designing the family photos I used in my slideshow which will be shown on my hubby's 60th birthday on April 13. Yehey! Thank you so much! More power to the site!

Well here is my first freebie. It's very simple but i hope it could also be useful. This is a try out freebie cuz ...well... I just created my blog. I hope it works. HAHAHA!

and you can get it here:


Hope you like it. I will try my best to improve my designs and i promise i will be back to share it with all of you. Good day!
