Off the Rails Scrapbooking April Challenge

This month at Off the Rails Scrapbooking the challenge is to be inspired by this mood board:
or there is this version:
I chose to use the one with the pink for my layout. I used a photo of my one of my daughters long term friends, Leah. Leah had taken this selfie, which I asked if I could scrap, she was obliging and said yes. 
I loved how the challenge colours were able to be picked up in the photo, so the 2 could work well. 
I tried a few different backgrounds, but the black cardstock worked best for this layout. I misted a little and did a bit of stencilling with texture paste and added some glitter. 
The leaves were cut with a Tim Holtz die and some glitter card and fantasy film (really old stuff from my stash). The patterned papers are also really old stuff. I thought I may as well keep going with the old, and added the sequin trim which was from a friends' mothers unwanted stash. The sequin bow from D-lish Scraps finished it all off. 
I showed the layout to Leah last night, I think she liked it, lol, 
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
