Anything Goes with a Lunagirl Birthday Twist!

Hello Everyone, Rene here!

My chance to challenge you this week!
I've decided to throw in a little twist this week: Birthdays!
Yes, you can make cards, but we would also like to see more!
Anything to do with birthdays, be it a gift, a layout, a tag, will qualify.
You will have to tell us how it links to the twist if it is not that obvious.

We have another little twist of our own.

The design team from Lunagirl Moonbeams, our generous sponsor, is joining us this week.

Mandy Chilvers
Hi, I'm Mandy.  I'm a mum, a vegetarian, an animal lover and I love to create.  My fave creative expression is mixed media which includes a lot of handmade backgrounds, lots of stamping and lots of collage. I love nothing better than to sit with a collection of collage images and create something. I run two challenge blogs as well as my own blog, which keep me busy in-between making things. 

Michele Jones:

"When my son was in elementary school I bought him some stamps for a poster project and realized I was having more fun with them than he was.  Later I started reading stamping magazines and joining Yahoo groups for stampers.  A local friend is an artist and I started having collage play time with her.  Over the years I’ve tried a few local art classes.  By the time my son was in college I was getting quite serious about my “hobby”. 

I started blogging in June of 2010 and I haven’t looked back.   Though card making is always a favorite activity because they are easy to give away, blogging has gotten me to try many other things from ATCs to “moos” to “twinchies” to art journals to canvases.  Participating in swaps and challenges has helped me to grow as an artist. I am honored to be a guest designer for Crafting by Design."

 "for this birthday challenge I decided to make some decorative gift bags.  I love collage so I used lunagirl images and a variety of other papers, tapes, laces, flowers and such to create 2 one of a kind bags which will work well for holding birthday gifts"

Petra Berendsen

I am Petra and I live in the South of England. Being a bit of a craft addict I immensely enjoy anything to do with crafting. I seriously started to play with paper and glue and everything else papery about five years ago and have been hooked since. I am so delighted to be a part of the Lunagirl Moonbeams DT. You can find me on my blog, PetraB's Allsorts."

I created a little box for this very special birthday present
