It is heating up here in South Mississippi. Thoughts turn to pool time.
We have had little luck with the preformed and blow-up pools sold for kiddies. So, we converted this horse waterer we had on hand to a pool.
It is fun and tough enough to take lots of play. It is easy to empty after each pool party because it is stiff and I can just tump it over.
The kids love it. And, I love it because it works!

More Letter Book Fun
I resorted to my old binding habits for this beauty. I just punched a couple holes along the spine and used some embroidery thread to bind the pages and cover together.
The cover is a sample of the K and Company's Que Sera Sera paper line. I love this stuff! The wings were stamped on another odd piece of paper from the same line and embossed with gold embossing powder. The lady is a piece of clipart from, I believe, a Dover collection.
I added the word "imagine" to give it a theme. It was simple, but tied together beautifully.
