Baking Up Achievement!

We have such a pertinent theme over at Path of Positivity!  With all the graduations, weddings, fairs, new homes, etc there are so many achievements to celebrate!

Having grown up in a 4-H family and then creating my own 4-H crew, summer is definitely a time full of accomplishment and achievement!  There is nothing more fun than watching the kids start the year oblivious to their project and then seeing it come to life during the summer.  Now, I'm not saying  it comes to life without lots and LOTS of prodding and nagging, but it's still so much fun to see it happen!

I did not show animals in 4-H since we didn't live on a farm, but I did participate in crafts, foods, sewing, photography, and some other projects.  One of my personal favorites was foods.  My daughter also showed in foods and was much more successful than I ever was!  She had several champions!

 One of our favorite summers was the year she practiced making apple pies.....ah, yes.....that was a great summer!  We all gained 10 pounds, but it was worth it!  

I decided to make this card for her to remind her of her wonderful days of baking achievements.  Hey, maybe this will spark an idea for her to bake one of those yummy pies!
