Summer lovin'!

Before I get too far, I wanted to thank everyone that gave their opinion about my beach themed cookies!  It was unanimous that the airbrush was really not needed on these cookies...and I am all about that idea!  It is just one less step needed and if it really isn't necessary, it will probably save me a little stress AND a lot of mess (remember that nasty "overspray issue, I mentioned?).

I did make a few more revisions to the cookie, however.  Upon suggestion, I tried making the flip flops slightly smaller as to not overpower the cookie.  I decided to make them black for the groom and white for the bride (good wedding colors and a little less "busy").  The last thing that I did, and this would probably only interest someone that was going to actually make this cookie, is I "set" the flip flops in the "sand" immediately after flooding and adding the sanding sugar.  This made one less step of setting them after the fact (with royal icing "glue") and I think made them a little less fragile.

Anyhoo, enough about those for now!

As you read this I will be visiting my babies in Denver!  Seems like much more than 5 weeks since I have actually seen them!  Thank God for Facetime...it's ALMOST like being there!

Nana could never make the trip without taking cookies!  I decided on summer cookies!  This is what I came up with:

 
Whatcha' think...sort of fun, right?!  I love all the bright colors, even though my pink definitely looks orange in this pic!  I even made some use of all those yellow flip flops I had made for the wedding cookies!



On other news...I have been working like a madwoman on my tool box.  Too hot to paint outside, so I drug it inside to paint, which meant I had to brush it on instead of spray!  I also have another quick re-do completed but did not have time to take pics, so I will share that when I get back, as well!

Till then...catch you on the flip side!
