Exploding box - Blue and Ocean theme

Hi all. Here is another exploding box that I made on order. The client wanted a blue colored box so I thought of having an ocean/sea theme.
Here is a look at the box
Top view of the box. I have used raffia, some dried grass, shells, fish charm and a star fish to give a snapshot of the inner theme.
A peek inside... do you see my li'l fishes popping up!!
The full layout [click to enlarge]
 Here I have used 3 small springs, as opposed to 1 in my last exploding box.
I have adhered fish stickers on the springs and the base.
I used Itsy Bitsy stickers to write the child's name. I have handcut the tag and stamped it using masking technique.
The four outer corners have pockets made with PP to hold tags made in various shapes and colors. The hexagon tag in purple here...
Star shaped tag in orange
Round tag in yellow color
Oval tag in green
Here is a view of all the tags together....
Thanks for visiting.
