I cannot post the original picture, but you can find it here : . Patrick Latter is the Photographer who captured this wonderful image and using Infrared. I fell in love with this picture so I decided to make it into a cookie. I asked him to make sure it was ok, and he gave me the ok plus smiley face, so I gave it a go :).

My set up:

Yes, my new caddy, so in love with it lol 🙂

Almost finished :

yes, not quite as even I would have loved, but the border will make it pretty 🙂

I added black royal icing and used a star tip to make the border. I was playing around with different paper backgrounds:


And this is my end result:


I even added my signature lol :

Inspiration is everywhere, I just happened to find it in a photograph. I love decorating, but no so often do I get to do cookies like this. Not so often do I have time to make cookies like this. I am happy with it, it makes me smile :).  When I saw the original photograph, I saw myself in it, towards the end. I could picture myself there, and breathe in all that wonderful air. I love it.

You can check out Patrick’s work at : …he captures very wonderful moments.

I will now go and finish up doing my Dora and farm animal favor tags, but I will leave you with this quote which I think about almost everyday:

“One day you will wake up and there wont be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” ~Paulo Coelho …My sister lives and breathes Paulo Coelho, and this is one of my favorite quotes.

Love to all!
