Altered Box Swap, Part 2

A week or so ago I shared the box I made for this swap. Today I'm sharing the box I received. I have to say, this box more than exceeded any expectations I had! The person who made it for me, RockinRenee, really put a lot of work into it (or she at least made it look like she did!) Anyway, I love it, and here it is:



Every inch of this lovely box was decorated, even the bottom! This is the front, side and back. The papers and embellishments are from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found. Isn't it gorgeous? I really love the feet that she added too.
 This is the top of the box, and yes, that's a real working clock! 
Here's a peek at the inside lid, another dimensional sticker and the clock works...
 And here's the inside view of the bottom part of the box. See, every bit is decorated!
The box itself really would have been enough for me to be happy, but then, it was filled to the brim with goodies. I think it's the entire Lost and Found collection!
Then, for the handmade item, Renee included these tags she cut that coordinate with the stamps.
Can you see why I was so thrilled to receive this box? It's absolutely wonderful and sits on the corner of my work desk so I can see it whenever I'm in my craft room. I also always know what time it is now.
This was a really fun swap and I'm so glad I participated in it. It was so interesting to see how everyone decorated their boxes so differently, and really, everyone did an amazing job! Thank you, Renee, for making mine extra special!
Thanks for stopping by!
