Altered Item Challenge

In April I hosted an Altered Item Challenge (Swap) on SCS.  I sent participants 2 identical items to be altered, one to send back to me (finished) and one to keep for themselves.  I got AMAZING projects back!
If you'd like to see pictures of other items I received (including items "before"), click here.  The swap was due at the beginning of June.  One participant's life was a little complicated at the due date.  So, I told her get your projects to me whenever you have the time.  Well last week this is what I received (along with A LOT of goodies for being patient).  I'm posting her projects here because most have unsubbed from the thread, but I wanted to showcase her work.  They turned out GORGEOUS!
The picture above is a wreath Contrapat made.  It lights up! 
She also altered a favor tin and mini board book:
The jeweled flowers are between 2 pieces of acetate.  She sent the box filled with dew drops.
