For my 21st Birthday, I flew to California on Freddie Laker Airlines, one of the first low cost airlines inthe UK.  Friends  took me to
Baker Street where I had my caricature drawn and the waiters sang Happy Birthday to me.  This sort of thing just didn't happen at home so it was a very special

The dress in the inset photo was the one I was wearing when the caricature was drawn.


  1. What a fab LO to remember a special occasion Janice - love it!

  2. This is perfect! It totally makes me smile. The glitter around the caricature, the frame behind you, the sparkler in your hand, the photo of you wearing the same dress as in the caricature, the flowers along the bottom.... love it all!

    Just curious... what is the finished size of this project? I think you should frame it :)

  3. What a superb way to spend your 21st birthday Janice.

    Love the layout.
