Quixotic Challenge #1: Birthdays

Welcome to the very first Quixotic Challenge! The Design Team and I are very excited about this, and hope that you will join us and have some fun!

Our very first challenge is a nice simple one, in honour of my birthday!


We would like you to create a project with a birthday theme.  
This could be a card, a tag, an altered item, a scrapbook page, anything you fancy!

You can check out the challenge guidelines over in the sidebar!

The prize at the end of this month (to be drawn at the beginning of December) will be a £20 Gift Certificate for Quixotic Paperie!  Just in time for the lucky winner to indulge in a crafty treat for Christmas!

The Design Team have come up with some gorgeous creations to share with you this week.  Talk about inspiration!  Please do pay a visit to their blogs and let them know what you think!

First we have creations from two fabulous guest designers this week!

And our regular design team:

To enter the challenge, please add your name and a link to your creation in Mr. Linky below.  The link can be to a post on your blog or to an online gallery, as long as the link goes directly to your creation and not simply to your blog or gallery.  The creation must also be a new one, please do not link to old posts or gallery uploads.

Email submissions are also welcome, please send them to quixoticcreations@googlemail.com with the subject: "Quixotic Challenges Email Entry".

Have fun, and thank you for joining us!
