Craft Rocket Challenges Number 26 - Happy Birthday

It's a new fortnight, so a new challenge for Craft Rocket Challenges and this challenge is Happy Birthday. So I decided to show this design. It was my daughter's friend's 30th birthday recently and as part of her present from the "girlies" I was asked to make this picture. It's the third one I have made.

The girls gave me a list of words they all associate with or that describe Gemma. Her favourite colour is bright pink and off I went. I didn't have access to an A3 printer this time around, so Charlotte bought a box frame with an A4 aperture. It was created entirely in Serif and printed on glossy photo paper.

I had to have it proof read three times because after a while, I hadn't seen the duplicated words and I'd spelt a couple of words incorrectly! I hope you like it. Apparently I have the rest of the girlies to do!

Why not join in, post/link a new project for Happy Birthday, you have until 26.10.16 to join in

It's a shane about the reflection from the photo paper
Spot the deliberate spelling mistake


  1. What a great idea!! I love all the words that remind you of Gemma!

  2. Hi Karen,
    what a very super creation, and such a very wonderful idea.
    I love all the fab words going lots of different ways, and all associated with Gemma.
    No wonder they were so pleased with it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Hi Karen this is a wonderful creation your daughter is going to love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  4. What a sweet keepsake for her. Great job with all the words going different directions!

  5. Hi Karen
    A super present. I thought you'd done it in Tagul but should have remembered you are the Serif maestro lol!
    The birthday girl obviously likes a tipple lol!
