This is so amazingly detailed! I gotta say my favorite part is the skull hidey-hole...but I also love the lil globe. Inspiring!

Thank you!  The hidey hole made be cackle while constructing it!  I love little sneaky surprises in things.

The amount of detail that you put into this is absolutely amazing! I especially loved that the books had actual pages that you could leaf through and not to mention the fact that the librarian had skeletons in her library lol.

 Shocked WOW. Shocked This is beyond amazing. Your swap partner must have been so thrilled! Every single detail is so remarkable and beautifully executed, and I cannot believe you even made pages for the books. Truly incredible. The skulls were a brilliant touch, by the way, and I love the replica library sign-out card! This goes so far beyond rocking.

MISS T you rock. you kick rocking's butt. you OWN rocking.
I agree, you have reached a whole new level of rocking!

I love all the details! This rocks so hard.
And there's no such thing as too many books, only a lack of shelves. Grin

Knowing the recipient of this tin, you have definitely captured her extraordinary love/lust of books, skulls, and weathered objects!!  Maybe if she sees this everyday, she will be able to purge herself of these vices...or not! Cheesy

ha--I loved this tin...so much detail in the finished project and now, the details further explained in a an abundance of words...wonderful story of your creative process!
