Megan is Sixteen

Megan, my great niece, is celebrating her sixteenth birthday. The cookies that I made for her were designed to reflect her special interests, including: Latin, Soccer and Running.  Her younger siblings were my "design consultants" for the cookies.  Mary Grace (7) said "blue and soccer. "  Leann (4) said, "green and apples."  The result is an eclectic collection of cookies.

Happy Birthday to a very special person, we are blessed to have you in our lives.
The traditional collection. . .
The bows were inspired by Ali Bee's very helpful tutorial:

The Latin cookies. . . I used the internet as my source for the Latin version of "Happy Birthday,"  I hope it's correct.

Finally, the sports collection. . .This was my first attempt at making soccer balls and I was very happy with the result. The mini shoes were inspired by my good friend, Donna.  You can view here work at:

Ooops, I forgot to get a photo of the apples.  However, since Leann is only 4, I think she will be too busy eating Megan's cookies to notice that a picture is missing from the blog.

My great nieces, Kaley and Chiann, celebrated their 16th birthdays before I started blogging, but I thought I'd share pictures of their cookies.

I am very fortunate to have a large extended family.

  1. The kids are all very lucky to have such a talented and thoughtful great aunt in their lives. I am sure they look forward to seeing their personal collection of cookies for "Big" birthday milestones. Each collection is remarkable in the way they reflect on the recipient!
