Tom's Farewell Album

Good day!!

In August Tom Grobben, from the Netherlands, joined the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber as an intern as part of his studies. He joined our team with eagerness, and fitted right in.

After 5 months with us, we have so enjoyed the time with Tom. He left for Netherlands this week and back to university and his life. But Tom certainly left a piece of himself in Nelson Mandela Bay!

This is a farewell gift i made for him. A scrapbook album made from paper bags.

Chipboard title from Celebra8

I made tags for each staff member, with their photo on and they all wrote a message for him.

Each photo is dry brushed with paint, as well as the edges of the bags.

Each page is adorned with photos, journalling (or place for him to journal).

 A Pocket hold some more tags.

Tom really liked his present and I hope that he will look at it for many years to come, when he remembers his fantastic trip to South Africa, and especially the people from Nelson Mandela Bay.

Have you made a special gift for someone that you were pleased to give them?

Scrappy love,
