A big Birthday thank you to everyone

Hellooooo everyone

Some of my Graphic 45 and IndigoBlu projects 
Thanks to Charee, Kelly at Graphic 45 and every one else for the all the birthday wishes today. I'd also like to thank my Dad for his message too, it was very special.   I can't quite believe this one's the big 50!!!!!!! It's an age you never think you'll get to when you're small,  one that seems a lifetime away but you seem to get to real quick:-).

Anyway to celebrate I thought I'd run a giveaway.  With Halloween upon us all you have to do to enter is be a follower on my blog and forward me a photo of a halloween project you've made from the Happy Hauntings collection by Graphic 45.  All pics will be loaded onto the followers gallery page of my blog and will be judged by Ali and Ian from Ali Craft.co.uk .

Please mail your entry to me by 11th November 2012 (12 midnight GMT). Entry limit is one per person.
Mail to: clarecharv@ntlworld.com
Prize:  A crafty goodie bag including some Graphic 45 goodies too

I'm really looking forward to seeing all your projects....

  5. Happy Birthday Claire - must be a good date my OH is 60 today!!!
    Hope you've had a wonderful day - like you've said 50 seems ancient when you are small but once you get there you don't feel any different
    Looking forward to seeing you at the NEC

  6. Oh my gosh Clare, we share birthdays. I turned 64 today so your 50 seems like a baby to me. Have a great time. Life is too precious not to enjoy! Big scrappy hugs, Mary

  7. Happy Birthday, Clare. I love being in my 50's. You know who you are, what you want, and you're not afraid to say so. (Finally!) I hope your birthday was grand, and that your whole weekend will be blessed. I so appreciate your incredible gift of creativity!

  8. Morning Clare, Happy Belated Birthday, I hope you had a lovely birthday. I celebrated my 50th birthday nearly 16 years ago, boohoo, ha ha, 'tempus fugit' and all that, it really does fly. What I can't understand is, that inside I feel 21, it is only when I look in the mirror and think 'who on earth is that ?????' ha ha. Since I retired from work in June 11, time has absolutely flown by, literally, it is frightening ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
    PS Looking forward to seeing you at NEC xx
