Sorority Girls

This is a set I decorated this week for AOPi [if that cute little Pi symbol is on my laptop, I can't find it]. The sorority had an open house this afternoon for their new 'house' on UT campus:

I understand they expected 350 to show up. I prepared 17 dozen cookies, 68 each of three designs. I was pleased at how they turned out, except a good number of the roses showed butter bleed through the red icing. Phooey....

The beginning of fall, for me, is when school starts each year [even though it's in the summer, really]. Every month offers something special. With September, we have school and football games! With October, there's Halloween...

These were made for a Halloween birthday party. I designed the two-piece party girl from the invitation that her mother sent to me: the head is separate from the starry dress [made from a candy corn cutter]. The ghost sports a Halloween banner and the cat is a sillouhette against the golden moon. Adding some pumpkins, the birthday girl's initial "A", and a few spooky houses complete the set.
