altered "dim sum" toiletries box

Wooohooo, my very first post at NBKS is up !! I really am inspired by Jana's idea of this site to give scrappers out there who may be just starting out, or those who have not yet been recognised by the larger scrapping community, or who choose to be more closet scrappers, a showcase to be seen and feel comfortable in. I feel really privileged to be part of its growth.

And this is what i shared.... really looks like a 'dim sum' (dim sums are chinese delicacies often served in small portions) container, doesn't it ?

This was a commissioned gift for a friend who was moving into a new home.... I heard that she was so tired from the shift that day, she decided to take a break. She sat down, spied this wrapped gift in a corner and decided to open it then, and it just made her day !! I am so heartened and so glad i played a part in making that moment.... for me, that's really what's so meaningful about scrapping ...

Like what u see ???? then you've got to trot over to NBKS for the close ups ....
and remember to leave some love while you're there !
Yeah !!! It's the weekend and i survived the first school week !
Have a great weekend everyone!
