Here is the beautiful matchbox I received from lindyv321!

She picked my flying pig theme. I love how elegant the box turned out, even though the theme is silly. It makes the box really fun.


Here are the goodies...


I love the little plastic pig! Thank you so much lindyv321! I will have to find a nice place to display it. Cheesy

Aw sweet flying pig matchbox.

Loving everyone's awesome works. The different techniques and ways of altering a matchbox are blowing me away each time i come for a peek at the gallery.

Oooh I love all these boxes so much!  I love the unusual one with the deer antler lady, and the circus, and the flying pig, and the butterflies, and the poppies, and .... I just love all of them.  Wow!

I don't know how the heck I missed the gallery!  Everything is so fabulous!!!  Who is ready for another round?Huh

I am glad that both my partners liked their boxes.  After I received from them I was a bit nervous that the ones I sent wouldn't be up to par.

First up I received from RaraAvis who chose my Winnie the Pooh theme.  She went with the Classic Pooh look which I love!

Front:


Back:


The goodies inside:

My favorite are the bee buttons and the Pooh pin!

Thank you so much for a wonderful box.

I also received from kittyherman who chose my Dia De Los Muertos and cats theme.  She asked if it was okay to make more of a shrine rather than a filled box and I was all for it.  For some reason I could not get a good picture of this box so please post a better one if you have kittyherman

Here is my Hello Kitty Day of the Dead shrine:


She also included some goodies that would have fit in the box


Thank you for this fabulous shrine!
