|There's the shotgun, more about these below!|
Here are the first of the graduation cookies. These below, are for my nephews in Iowa, and I wanted to post them so they could see how great they look on a platter, since they will be carefully wrapped when they get there! I am missing their parties this weekend for a wedding, but I know it will be a great celebration! So Congrats to Frank and Tom!

Next up is a young girl whose favorite color is purple...but is going to Ole Miss. And since I am not about to ice Col. Reb on a cookie, we went with the favorite color theme! Congrats Blakely!
|Ole Miss bound.|
And finally, a young man graduated from my son's alma mater. These were a little more fun because I have a lot of experience at this school. It's all boys, and they wear a tie every day, so the tie was a natural part of the platter, as was his college choice UT. I like to put in a ball or banner if there was something that really stood out in their high school career. As it turns out, Chris was on the trap shooting team, so I made shotguns! My sweet husband even offered to bring me a shotgun to sit as my model! I think they turned out pretty good, and really added some personality to the old mortar boards!
