Christmas Craft Challenge 8 of ?

For December we had a Secret Santa swap on the Artistic Creationz Website. Our partners were chosen at random and the receiver didn't know who the sender was... though most of us worked it out one way or another lol. My adorable swap partner sent me this awesome altered box with lots of goodies inside.
I love the way she has altered this box. I've always had trouble covering metal boxes, so tend to avoid them (put them in the too hard box) but my SS did an awesome job with altering this tin.
I love the colour combination. I'm definitely a warm Autumn colours girl. Love reds and oranges of every shade. But having said that I also love apple green and lime green, so my SS couldn't have picked a more perfect colour scheme if I had told her exactly what I liked.. and I didn't.

Inside were some amazing goodies. The most magical and heart warming was a little present of goodies for my granddaughter.
The box was was full to the brim with lots of goodies including these really cute handmade washi tapes.
Stickers... chipboard die cuts and and awesome mini album closure.
Beautiful flowers and some decorative wood embellishments from Prima.
A note book, address book and coordinated pencils...always useful!
 And a book for me to alter... probably after I have read it first.
Awesome Christmas goodies... thank you so much to my Secret Santa from the Artistic Creationz Group.
