I made cookies titled "A day of a flower girl" then "A photo of the flower girl (A day of a flower girl 2)".  There was one more idea in my head but I could not drew it out.   I thought it would stayed in my head and never came out but there was a cookie artist who helped me, whose name is Manu.   

How it started is here :

What happened was a really miracle to me.  She sketched what was in my mind, the car looked like my car (mine is not convertible, though), she solved the problem how the girl got in the car and she could even guessed what colors I wanted to use.   I cannot describe how happy I was when I saw her sketch.  

Thank you, Manu who helped me to design this cookie.

I wanted to put "Manu" on the license (number) plate of the car and I was going to make a ribbon with fondant says "just married" over yellow roses but it did not happen.

Wow! What a surprise!

When Ryoko told me, in the comments, she had a part 3 in mind, described it and told me she couldn't design it, I tried to sketch it. And sent her a sketch just for fun through Cookie Connection's private message.

The car is not very elegant, but I kept the design simple to be transferred on to the cookie. I tried to keep the grace of the dress of the girl though she is trying to climb in the car and lost one shoe. Ryoko told me that this was exactly what she had in mind. And when I told her the shoes were supposed to be pink and the seats green, though for both of them I used red color in the sketch, to show the contrast, she told me she had imagined that too. Even the basket in that position though she didn't describe it. And that she would have tried to make the cookie.

That made me very happy and it makes me happy to see the part 3 of the story done. I wish we could have lived a little bit "closer" and worked on it together, elbow to elbow.

Thank you, Ryoko for the hard work and the passion you put to realize this cookie, it is amazing the way you were able to reproduce my sketch! I love the ballons you added!

This collaboration comes from the Challenge and from Cookie Connection that gave us the chance to get connected and made the distance short!

Thank you, Christine and Julia!

I really really wished we had lived closer.  I wanted to change the angle of tires but it took hours for me to sketch with a pencil, paper and a big eraser.   Now the front tire looks too big.  And this girl is so curious about anything she sees and she needed a reason to get in the car, so I added balloons.  But that's another hours with a pencil and a big eraser.  

While I was making this, I thought so many times "probably I need a bit more advice from Manu" but I really wanted to make you surprised so I did not tell you some changes.

Awesome story, ladies. So glad you were able to connect at a distance. The result is absolutely charming!

Thank you, Julia.  Thanks to Cookie Connection, I could meet another wonderful cookier who is willing to help me.  

Oh, I did not tell you until now but there was someone who even helped my English to post my clip.   Gee, this is such a great place where I can find amazing cookies every day, where I can practice and learn how to decorate cookies, where I can meet great people who work forward and where I can learn even English.  

I'm speechless... or writeless, rather.

This cookie is just amazing. All the details are just piped perfectly and I am totally in love with that car!!!

I can totally understand Ryoko, as I am awfull at sketching. And I have so many ideas in my head which would require sketching in advance. Beware, Manu, I might stalk you in the future

Collaboration between Manu and Laegwen, wow!   My favorite 2 big artists.  

Laegwen, I know what you talk about the car, Japanese cars might be eco-friendly cars and German cars have nice engines and Italians make beautifully designed cars.   We do not see many convertible cars here, so I couldn't come up with it and the doors open that way?!   that's beyond my imagination.     

Ryoko,

you just did great! It was hard for me to design the front tire as well! And it was the first thing I noticed when I saw the cookie. "Clever!", I thought. And I am so glad that you surprised me not telling me anything about your variations, so there is also something yours in the design. And also that you didn't show me or tell me when you were going to post it.

I had a blast when I saw it!!!!

Leoni, whenever you want. You know, I have been living in Germany for a while, but still far away from you! Meanwhile I am still thinking cookies for your bday. LOL!

WOW! You girls are amazing! Ryoko wonderful cookie, just brilliant....

And Manu...This is to confirm what a wonderful person you are...I already knew that although I don't know you in person... (I wish I know you in person though). You always have something nice to say, always have the time to like and comment...And I was just teasing you about those Bday cookies....but now I know that you are capable of doing this... You are great!

Thank you.  

Manu is sure a wonderful person.  Not only she gave me the sketch, her private message was really encouraging and by her sketch and words, she described what I couldn't express enough. She is such a patient and considerate person.  

If Manu does not notice your comment here, I will tell her to see.

Manu, the sketch itself is a work of art!  You two make quite a team!

Christine @BAKERLOO STATION,

thank you for the kind comments, I just try to draw what Ryoko described. The funniest thing is that my first idea for my entry to the challenge was very similar to her first cookie (the perspective of the roses on the sides of the carpet that leads to the altar).... but I couldn't sketched it the way I wanted and moved to the cookie puzzle!

Anyway this has been a really nice experience, for the way it was born and the way it has developed. I think I will never forget when yesterday I opened the tab and first thing I saw it was the sketch transformed into cookie. Again, it was amazing what Ryoko was able to do and how she surprised me! And I love the details she added, that give that touch that was missing, and this is the truly collaboration.

Power of the Challenge that sparkles creativity and Cookie Connection that connects cookier!
