Everyone celebrates birthdays on a regular basis--their own big day, those of other family members--even the founding dates of organizations to which they belong. These celebrations can be a great opportunity to make a Gallery Glass panel that will be used over and over again. It also makes a good gift to give to the member of the family who usually PLANS the celebrations for everyone else (Mom or Grandma).
Last year, one of the directors got the idea that we should have a cake that everyone attending the celebration could sign or autograph. This is a good idea for a very special birthday or anniversary--even a retirement ceremony. It creates a keepsake for the recipient. I left the background clear so that it could be signed with a permanent marker and then displayed for years to come. You can put the clear over the signatures after the event--to seal them permanently.
Have fun with this one--remember the reason birthdays are so popular --is because everybody has one!
