My First Photobook Project

I am so happy!

My first Photobook Project (finished product) is finally here!

I am not too proud about the layout inside. Since I had to do everything in just 4 hours, I had to re-use downloaded background images and embellishments from And since I haven't had time to explore and learn Photoshop, I resorted to using MS Photodraw.

Nevertheless, I am really happy with how the pages turned out in print.

Thanks a lot to Digiprint for accommodating my request and delivering it in 3 days!

So, here it is....

A little blurry... I really need to get an SLR. ^^v

This is a photobook created to document highlights of my sister-in-law's vacation in the Philippines. Hubby and I are giving it to her as despedida gift. By Tuesday, she will be returning to Dubai for work. We are really happy and blessed to have spent this time with her. Even just her smile lightens up the mood in the family. Love love! <3

Dana's 4D Ultrasound

World, I would like to introduce to you our little girl, Dana (coined from Danielle Naomi).

Dana at 7 months, 4D Ultrasound

She is 7 months now, actively kicking every now and then. Baby Kick counting has become addictive and fun. <3

Hubby and I had several names to choose from. At first hubby was insistent on the name "Patricia" and I on "Louise". But I really couldn't let go of the name Danielle since I am inspired by Daniel's story from the Old Testament. But since she is a girl, it has to be spelled with "le" at the end. And then we added the name "Naomi", still after a Biblical character.

Daniel means "God is my judge."
Naomi means "Pleasant."

So we pray that God continue to guide our little girl from then and until she grows up to be a good Christian. That her name be a good reminder that we are foremost beings created for the glory of God. And that may she keep a really pleasant aura and outlook in life and be a blessing to people. :)

And oh... I just wanna mention, Danielle is also Drew Barrymore's name from the movie "Ever After" which I also happen to like very much. <3
