Life's a Beach!

Happy First Day of Summer!!!  We have been home for 2 days.  Our vacation was wonderful this year.  The kids had a blast, we took time to relax, and the weather was fantastic!  Blissful!  Now we are home and we have less than 2 weeks to move into our new house!  Exciting, crazy, busy, nuts, etc.  Well, let's just say it's opposite of the beach!!!  

Here is an order for beach cookies I did a few weeks ago for an old teacher friend, Beth, whose son was graduating from HS and going to a Florida State.  She wanted beach cookies and that is what she got!  I know I say this a lot, but this was one of my favorite orders!

The crab was definitely the star.
As I decorate cookies, I have a little group of
friends who get "sneak peaks" of my creations
via late night text messages.  That crab?
Yeah, he won most popular!!!
Who me?
I personally LOVED the bucket o' sand!
The palm trees got a lot of chatter too.
These were my second fave!
I used crumbled cookies for the sandy look!!
I also used my cake cutter to make this castle.
I'm getting better at improvising!
Can't forget the floppers at the beach!!
Simple shells.
That sneaky crab...

Thank you Beth!
Best of luck to your son.
Happy Summer!!
