A Musical Celebration

with brother, cousins and Grandma Carol
 Spring has arrived and in our family that means someone is graduating.  The honoree this year is Chiann, a girl who enjoys time spent with family and friends.  .  .

and loves riding horses.  .  .

.  .  . but High School was all about the Music!
Every Graduate experiences the thrill of marching down the aisle to "Pomp and Circumstance," so I thought I would present it in cookie form.  Since I have no musical training I relied on my husband's guidance to help me with the musical notes.  Although he was a great mentor, I still made a mistake that I did not detect until I was packing the cookies.  Fortunately, I have adopted the philosophy that it is "just a cookie". . . packed them up and said "oh well."   Knowing Chiann, she will just smile and give me a hug when I show her the error!

Marching band, choir, piano and flute were the center of Chiann's extracurricular activities.  The hat was created from a jelly bean cutter and the choir robe was originally an angel.  In addition, I added a graduation cap to a cake cutter to create a unique centerpiece cookie for the collection.

Graduation caps, diplomas and musical minis completed the collection.
  Love, hugs, and cookies for a special girl on her special day!
