Gave this to my son's teacher. I was going to give her a gift basket, but decided to put it into a beach pail instead. Stuffed it with lots of summer-time goodies: Bath & Body works handcreams, foot scrub, decorating magazines,
starbucks cookies and chocolates, a plastic shovel and water pistol.
And a Fishy Friends notecard pouch (see Boxes and Bags) with 24 thank you notes, a $10 gift certificate and a Stampin Up catalog. Does anyone out there have Watercolor Garden? Look at the palm trees on this pail, they are the stem and leaves from that stamp set! cool huh! (thanks to Michelle Laycock who told me how to do this!) I put a little hang-tag on the handle that says .... are you ready for this? ... "Other teachers PAIL in comparison to you!" How cheezy is that, but I couldn't resist!!

This is absolutely adorable. The saying is not cheesy, it is perfect.

What a great idea! I think I'm going to have my boys make some of these for themselves; I'd like to have a craft day with them making something useful. Then we can go to the park and they can play in the sand box! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
