Luau Cookies

I know I'm being a completely lazy blogger, but I've been staring at this post for too long trying to think of something interesting to say and I've got nothing.  So, here's the cookie info.  These cookies were for favors for a luau themed birthday party.  Both the hibiscus and the hawaiian shirt ideas were inspired by Sugarbelle.  The pink in the pictures didn't turn out quite right no matter how I tried to adjust things, but it was really a bright pink that was much prettier than it looks in the pictures.

Thanks for putting up with my boringness today and I promise I'll try to be more interesting next time.

Pink Eiffel Tower Cookies

I had an order for Eiffel tower cookies, and since it took me about 5 minutes just to trace a realistic Eiffel tower image with a pen, I figured it was going to take a long time to pipe a couple of dozen of them.  So I opted for a more pretty, whimsical version:

I've been trying to improve my cookie photography, so I've included props!  I used the ribbons that I had cut for tying the cookie bags, and that there is an authentic Eiffel tower replica, meaning that we bought it in Paris on our honeymoon.  Here's my favorite shot:
