Lighthouse Beach Pail Farewell Gift

This little project was made a while back, but I forgot to post it. Thought I should do it before the Summer fades away . . . sniff, sniff! My younger daughter had a classmate move away this summer, so a farewell party was held in the girls' honor. She's moving to Southwestern Michigan where lots of pretty beaches and lighthouses can be found! We should know - we vacationed there this Summer!

Here was our farewell gift:

 Sand pail in school colors, shovel, sunscreen,
glow bracelets, frisbee & a beach towel from Target that said
"This space saved for someone AWESOME"
(or something to that effect - can't remember exactly)

  • Cricut Life Is A Beach cartridge for lighthouse card
  • Red and white cardstock
  • Blue, red and yellow Stickles
  • CK Tipsy Font
My girls start school tomorrow. I'm so sad! That means I actually have an earlier bedtime now . . .  one less hour of crafting or surfing my favorite crafty blogs. Say it isn't so!

Have a good week all!

What a great gift! I've been hearing a lot lately about the beautiful beaches in Michigan. I guess I should go visit sometime!
