Bluebonnets and Peaches

My awesome mom finally retired this year, and my husband and I threw a retirement party for her.  Yay for free babysitting!

We’re originally from Texas, and my mom loves bluebonnets. so that was an obvious choice for her retirement cookies. I also made a set of peaches to represent the last few years she’s been working in Georgia.  These are all made using the wet on wet technique – the bluebonnet landscapes required a lot of time, but I loved the way they turned out (they looked much better in person).
