Althea’s Dance Practice04.23.11

For Althea’s birthday program, she and her friends selected one of their favorite songs so that they could have a special dance presentation for her guests. They’ve selected Shakira’s Waka Waka song.

Here are the pictures during their dance practice.

Look at the kids outside, watching the girls practice their moves!

Girl in orange overall is Kim kim.

Girl in yellow green tee shirt is Ubas.

Girl in black shirt is Jessa.

And the cute girl in the middle, wearing stripe tokong is my beautiful niece, Althea or Thea as we fondly call her.

More! More! More! hehehe

Althea’s Invitation04.21.11

They say that when a little girl turned seven, she should have a mini debut to celebrate her birthday. And that’s what we gave her, my beautiful niece Althea. We gave her a very special 7th birthday!

Let me share to you her birthday invitation.

To save money, we have her invitation printed on a photo paper from Kodak (because it’s the one near at the office). I edited the words on her invitation while her Aunt Abby designed the layout. Unfortunately, I did not have Photoshop to edit and mix the pictures together. Couple of days ago, I took several pictures of her wearing the princess gown we bought for her. So what we have now are: Althea, on her pink princess gown;  a downloaded pictures of the Disney princesses and also a picture of a castle as the background. After Abby combined the three pictures, I edited the words and have it all printed. The final invitation is this….

Expenses: Printing and Envelope – about P400 for 30 pieces

It’s really cheap compared to having this made-to-order in Recto. With the technology today, you can do almost everything on your own.  You can save money and you’ll enjoy making things for the celebrant who’s dear to you.

Althea’s Pictorial04.06.11

After buying Althea’s dress for her upcoming 7th birthday, we have to have her picture taken because we will use those pictures for her invitation. So I took out my DSLR and shot several pictures of her. Isn’t she cute or what?!?!

She’s kind of shy at first because there where so many kids outside our gate looking at her.

I really like her natural smile here…she look so innocent! :)

This is the full view of her dress. It’s like a princess dress because of the ‘ball gown-layered’ style of it. We got this dress from Divisoria mall for a very reasonable price of P1500 from P1800. It’s a lot cheaper compared to buying it in the mall.

Must pose like a princess!

Another pose like a princess!

For close up, we need this kind of shots for her tarpaulin.

Complete close-up shot, with her tiara. A princess is not a princess without her diadem!

I love how she smiled. You will think that she practiced smiling? Nope, she did not. She got talent when it comes to modeling. She can project herself. She knows that she did not have a good set of teeth so she smiles naturally without it looking so forced (in trying to hide it).

More to come!!!
