I'm not going to say anyone could do this - if you've never soldered before then, in my opinion, this is not the place to start.
But, if you can solder normal through-hole components into a pcb then you can also solder up a Gertboard. That's where I was: I had never soldered smd components before and I thought that would be difficult verging on the impossible, but it wasn't. I followed Gert's advice and it worked. I used a combined lamp/magnifier, tweezers, fine solder (0.4mm) and a 25W Antex iron with a fine tip. The first smd took a while, and several attempts, but I soon got the hang of it. One piece of advice - only hold with the tweezers in the final second or so as you solder the component into position - there's a danger of the component pinging off out of the tweezers, never to be seen again.
